It's been hectic and busy around here getting ready for the trip but I've managed to get a little creative time in and I made this little canvas to leave up at the house in place of the real tree we will not be putting up here this year:
I saw this totally awesome video here by Christy Tomlinson (whose work I love!) and I then saw the color palette over at TCR and came up with the idea of my Christmas tree! Here's a few close ups:
I picked up the frame from the $1 store (a buck can you believe it!!) and sprayed it white..it was originally grey. Next I cut and painted the background canvas. Then I used all manner of scrap paper and fabric to make my tree, cut the star from my roll of ducting tape (not to be confused to duct tape) and voila! my tree was born! Super easy, festive project if you want to give it a try! If you do end up making this, please send me a link in the comments, I'd love to see them all!
OK, in case I don't get a chance to get back onto my blog before the year's end I would just like to wish everyone a HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
