A Whoville Christmas Tree

The furniture in our living room is blue and I was thinking of doing a patriotic tree (Red, white and Blue) but then I thought it might be even more different and even more creative to do a take on “Whoville”.  You know, as in the Grinch…image

Well, those crazy blues, pinks and purples along with some lime green and orange are the theme of my Christmas tree. And I LOVE it!

However, finding these colors in Christmas ornaments isn’t easy and isn’t cheap. So off IMG_2204to Michaels I went to get these clear glass balls that I got on sale (cyber Monday coupon).  I went into the paint section and picked out colors that match my tree's d├ęcor.  That’s all you need to create your own glass ball ornaments. 

You start by pouring a few drops of your first color into the IMG_2206bottom of the ornament…then shake, shake, shake senora! Or you can get really crazy and pour a little paint down each side of the ball to create a vertical line affect.

then pour your second color in the ball and again…shake, shake, shake senora Smile
