When I was a kid, I think every old lady that I knew of had one of these trees. Well, now that I am almost an old lady I decided I had better have me a ceramic Christmas tree.
I painted the bisque with one of their "Simplicity" glazes and LOVE how it turned out. Makes the house feel a bit more festivy (not really a word), since I have not really done any decorating this year!
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
