This tree looks like the other Nowell trees but it is flat so you can put it on a shelf or windowsill. Make sure when you order your tree that you actually want a flat tree.
This tree has cutout stars, moons, and hearts and the light shines through them, rather than plastic twist lights like most trees. (Tree is shown on a different base.)
These trees are made to look like they are constructed from fabric. Therefore they wouldn’t have lights. The base for the one on the left is no longer available and is really not needed since it is not lighted. The tree on the right is a music box tree — turn the tree to wind it and it plays music as it unwinds.
The tree that we use for sports trees can also be used for other designs which you can decoupage (picture 1) or paint (pictures 2 & 3) on the oval area of the front. Or you could cut out a name or a theme to let the light show through the design (pictures 4 & 5). Also, the entire oval can be cut out and a small scene inserted directly into the wood-floor base. Perhaps a nativity set or a caroler or a snowman.
Salt & Pepper Trees
Specify when ordering whether you want s/p holes drilled and the bottoms fitted with stoppers. You can decorate with glazes, underglazes, or stains and add snow, rhinestones, or glitter.
Snowman and Penguin Trees
These trees are quite large and take a while to paint all the detail. You can add names of the kids or grandkids to the snowman bellies, or change the wording on the penguin signs. (When ordering, ask that words be removed when the tree is cleaned).
Spruce tree comes in 15″ and 7″ sizes — looks pretty much the same in the pictures. First is the 15″ tree catalog picture, then one I painted in stains. Next is the 7″ tree catalog picture, and one I painted in glazes. The large spruce tree takes the large twist lights.
Where having Fun is why we come!
That’s all for tonight. Lots of Christmas trees to think about!
