Greetings from Wonderland! Today I’ll be sharing how to create this winter “wonderland” holiday display. I’ve combined several past projects to make a whimsical Alice in Wonderland themed version of the traditional Christmas village.
Instead of tiny glittering houses I used an array of vintage tea-cups from my collection. We can’t have tea without a tea-pot so I have also included this slim vintage tea-pot in my display.
Remember my vintage button covered bottle brush trees? Don’t they look darling nestled inside of these vintage tea cups? I used a variety of tea-cup sizes and played a game of mix and match with my saucers as well. You can view my tutorial for making Vintage Button Trees here.
These tiny tea-cups housing my tiny trees are my favorites.
Alice in Wonderland Christmas Tree
Next, we have the Alice in Wonderland Christmas tree. I found this mini white tree at the thrift for 2 bucks! I knew as soon as I saw it that it was destined for the “Wonderland Treatment”.
I created custom Alice in Wonderland Ornaments to decorate my tree using Ranger Ink products and Danita Art Stamps. (Full Tutorial coming soon)
The Garland is yarn dyed with Dylusions spray inks. I’ll be showing the step by steps to create your own glittering rainbow garland along with the glittering roses in a future post.
I found some bits and bobs from Alpha Stamps in my stash. These were leftovers from my Alice in Wonderland Tea Table. I just adore the mini playing cards and clock face buttons.
My Alice in Wonderland tree was finished off with a colored mini light string from Dollar Tree. The ornaments are mirror backed and boy do they make those lights shine!
Here’s a group shot of all of the ornaments and the tree pre-decorations. Check back soon for a full tutorial on how to create these Alice in Wonderland Ornaments.
Alice in Wonderland Tree Topper
Do you remember the Altered Tea Set I made a while back? I told you I had big plans for it. Here I have wired the tea-set together and attached it to a ribbon wrapped plant stake to create this floating tea pot tree topper.
Another string of lights from the dollar store adorns a tiny Norfolk Pine while the tea-pot hovers over head.
Notice the beaded wire coming from the tea spout? I used Alpha beads to spell “T-E-A”…well almost I ran out of “A’s” and substituted a heart.
The planter holding the Norfolk pine is made from broken china saucers, tea-cups and the like. You can checkout my tutorial for creating a broken china flower pot here
I do hope you will join us at the Altered Alice this month as we will be sharing Christmas cheer…Wonderland style! For this month backlinking will be allowed so head on over and share your Alice in Wonderland creations!
Wishing you all a warm and “Wonderful” holiday season!
