Casa Quickie: Costume Jewelry as Ornaments

I'm definitely an enthusiast of fresh-cut Christmas trees, but I also appreciate small doses of more kitschy and colorful holiday décor. I think if you go that route, you have to own up to the tackiness of it, and really go all out. So, I decided to bling out this bare mini pink tree with my big box of costume jewelry, using rock star pins, clip-ons, buttons, keys, pendants, and guitar picks as ornaments. I used embroidery floss to create hooks for the pieces that couldn't clip onto the tree on their own. And I wrapped a set of pearl Mardi Gras beads around it as a garland. No, it's not the most impressive tree, but it kind of makes me laugh. And my rhinestone costume earrings add a bit of sparkle.
