Let's start with Mary's Heirloom Christmas Tree from SVGCuts.com.
I love the base too. I kept the vintage/retro theme with images from Retro Christmas Card Company here.
My bulbs were just a wee bit too small for the holes, so I used some Glass bead gel (Liquitex) over the areas and inserted the bulbs while it was wet. They are glued in nice and firm now.
Thanks Mary for a great project, you know I love you! see you tomorrow!
