1/12 Christmas Tree with Toys

Miniature Christmas Trees with toysThis little scene is designed to be used as a centerpiece, mantel decoration, etc. in a 1:12 scene, but it use several items from my 1:144 supplies.

Original Miniature TreeThe tree started as one of those cheapy little trees made from twisted wire — sort of like a bottlebrush. I removed the clunky wooden base and I used a variety of landscaping foams to dress it up into a nice looking evergreen. I then decorated it with “crystal snow” — a product I found in the “rubber stamping” section of Michael’s and 0.5mm no-hole beads that I purchased from MiniKitz.

The glass dome and base was purchased from Laura Dubois’ Miniatures and Collectibles. I stained the base with MinWax Golden Oak. I painted the center section white and then covered it with a mixture of white paint and white glue.

I covered the entire gloppy mess with the crystal snow.

Christmas Tree Toys

The teddy bear and airplane are painted metal miniatures from sdk miniatures. The teddy bear actually comes as a “standing bear”, but I broke off his little legs (owie!) and then glued (Zap CA glue) them back on in the sitting position (prior to painting).

The adorable little rocking horse is a wood product of Virginia’s crazy shapersaw and can be purchased at Virginia’s site, A Sheila’s Shed.

This miniature is now in a private collection.
