pretty in pink

My little pink tree made of tulle.  Read that these little trees were popular in the '50's.    I have always wanted to make one .
I cut a dowel in half which made it 18 inches.  A disc I cut from a piece of wood I had in the shed.  I drilled a hole in the disc and glued the dowel in the opening.
Didn't have any pink paint on hand so I glued wrapping paper to the disc.
The pattern called for 10 discs cut from tulle in varying sizes.  I decided it needed more so I cut some in different sizes in 1/2 inch more that the disc next to it.   The tulle folded in half witha running stitch a quarter of the way down from fold.  
I made sure I separated the tulle from the other so it was fluffy.

Tulle in different sizes






getting there with a few more to go

Leaving the top for an angel or star - hope I can find a vintage angel

Will place little small christmas balls on it too.  Not gonna glue them but will just put little wire hanger on them .
