Beaded Pins Make a Great Christmas Tree

Don't you love how ingenious some people in the arts and crafts world tend to be?

I love seeing the creations of artists and crafters.

When my eyes first landed on the  crafty Christmas tree in this post, I thought it was very, very pretty.

Upon closer examination, I realized it was made from safety pins and colored beads!

How cool is that?  

This kind of craft sells for pretty good money, too, so I'm delighted to say mine was thrifted and not expensive.

I do jewelry, but I have never made beaded decorations; my sister made snowflake ornaments one year with this technique. There are a lot of gift crafters in this world though, XOXO

We made lovely angels one year for a Girl Scout activity. I may have one somewhere still. That is one lovely tree!

What a sweet little tree, I like things that are a bit different and no I have never seen anything made out beads and safety pins.
I also checked out your reindeer bears and the sad story of the little boy with stern parents, children should be taught to behave but they are children and need to express themselves so most of the time you have to meet them halfway, most people understand that.

This was a very unique tree. I've never seen anything like it before!
