Celebrate a Hispanic-themed holiday with a tree like this one done by the staff of Siempre Mujer magazine.
This tree was decorated by the staff of Siempre Mujer ("Always a Woman"), a bimonthly title aimed at Hispanic women. Editor Johanna Buchholtz-Torres says the magazine's core emphasis on the family, home, and traditional values will reach across and unify the many cultures that make up the Hispanic community.
Tissue paper flowers using multicolor tissue bring the colorful theme to the forefront. Traditional balls mix well with heart- and hand-shaped tin ornaments.
Tiny charms were sewn to sheer ribbon, adding interest and personality.
Tiny silver wired ornaments are wound together to create more impact.
Tin ornaments, painted in vibrant hues, make eye-catching decorations.
Inexpensive flags (all depicting Hispanic countries) were sewn to the border of the brilliant red tree skirt.
