Total length from top of pine boughs to bottom of beaded dangle is about 17". Used thin chipboard and cut the Tussie Mussie form, added the paper and cut out the inset shape using one of Tim Holtz Sized Arch dies. Painted inside the Tussie with white, crackle medium, then brown. Formed Tussie Mussie cone shape. Made a loop from stiff wire and hot glued it into the bottom of the cone to hang the bead dangle. Cut the smallest and the largest circles of his Sized Circles dies from medium/heavy weight chipboard - glued the smallest toward the bottom of the Tussie for the Woodlands tree (and faux snow) - cut a center circle out of the big circle and glued a battery operated tea light where the switch was accessible. Then I glued the large circle with tealight in place over the tree. Covered the "platform" with dried moss & glued in some realistc looking pine boughs and cones - decorated with some scraps of lace from my stash. Tree and green lace are sprayed with Tim Holtz Adirondack Color Wash sprays.
