If you follow Jennifer on Instagram or Facebook, you know she has been a busy bee crafting up a storm for her upcoming Holiday Show in her home in Wilton, CT. She gets lots of requests on how she does her pin trees, so here is a quick tutorial.
Dump all varieties of sequins in a large plastic container. This is so you can have it in your lap and ready to go anytime.
Grab yourself a Styrofoam tree in any size from a local craft store, pearlized pin heads, so you don’t have to spend extra time adding a seed bead or pearl which gets time consuming, but you can if you like; and start pinning! Jennifer starts at the bottom and works her way up, but do whatever is comfortable for you.
I’m Jennifer’s assistant, also a Jennifer, and I like to do the trees with just sequins and plain sequin pins. In fact, its my favorite project to do on a road trip. My husband appreciates it because I can still talk to him while he drives, instead of zoning out on my phone or reading a book or magazine! Here is a tree I was working on last week while we drove to Asheville, NC.
If you are planning on doing a lot of trees, order your pins from China on Ebay to make life easier. Also try using Styrofoam balls and 1/2 circles for a fun platform. You can find sequins at any craft store, but again, if you are making multiple trees it is cheaper to order in bulk off a site like Cartwight’s.
Here is a display of trees Jennifer did recently. Don’t they look amazing on display? We hope you enjoy the trees as much as we do. Let us know how it goes and give us a holla in the comments or tag us on social media. Thanks for stopping by!

Cut from an old quilt that had made its way to the flea has been revived in a beautiful and luxurious way. The beautiful Window Pane Quilt is stunning in this 12 x 24 pillow. Backed with Ticking this 50 year old quilt handmade by some wonderful person has a new legacy as comfort pillows. They are perfect for the Holidays and beyond. We are so happy with the results. We hope you love them $85.00 each!! All different.

So I took a bunch of candle sticks and spray painted them gold!! While they were drying I took those cardboard cones wrapped old wallpaper and tinsel around and made a lovely forest of Christmas trees. I’m finding my true north and trying to always top last years handmades..it’s not easy sometimes I think where is my creativity!!! Like any creative if you don’t use it you get a bit stale but I am in the groove and ideas are flying now i need to catch up with them. #sleepless nights. I hope you come this year. Make the trek and see how much fun we have here!! Invite below in previous post. So here are the trees. $45.00 each.

I don’t mean at all to be annoying but this is truly what I am working on these days. Our Holiday Show. November 7-9 9-6 and believe me it takes elves working day and night. We start early and we work long hours to make sure we have created a worthwhile place to spend some time. So I am kicking off the calender with these trees, my new fetish!!! I love them. I hope you will come by to rest your weary Holiday feet and get excited about the Holidays. It is early this year and we just have so much to get ready!!! Please say you will come and join us. We love seeing you !!!
