You know all of those stem glasses at garage sales, that people practically beg YOU to take?  Well, here is the result of collecting over the summer.  Another reuse, recylce, practically free, tree!!!

junkartqueen: I'll try and take a pic without the light, but the glasses really blend in with the green tree without the lights. I would have liked to have done another white tree with these glasses. I've received a lot of compliments on this tree, too.

Candy: great idea about adding wording to the ribbons!

Thanks again all! Posted: 6:37 pm on November 17th

Very creative!
