mini tree

We spent last Christmas at my place so M didn’t decorate much. I thought it was sad that he didn’t have a tree, and I kept seeing these ones on flickr, and then the moths snacked on my green sweater and next thing you know I was making this guy.

I sewed the rick rack on before giving it to M and he got to “decorate” the tree, pinning on the buttons and pom-poms which I then glued in place.

For the base I used a scrap from an old screen-print mandala. I inserted cardboard to make the base flatter and used a wooden knob that was kicking around the studio for the tree trunk.

This year the crazy holiday crafter struck again when I decided to make an advent calendar on November 30th. Pictures soon.

Thanks to M for these photos.

    This tree is wonderful!
    and yeah, I am looking forward to seeing the advent calendar too.

    Moths ate 2 pairs of pants this year, I have been wondering myself:
    1. How to end once and for all the moth problem and
    2. What to do with my pants because the fabric is useful for something!!

    (uh oh, clutter…)
