2D Christmas Tree

Posted in Craftin', Small Space on 25.11.12 by Octopi

As much as I love a real Christmas tree in the house, some years I don’t want to give up the space in my little condo for a fir-ry friend. This year I’ve decided to work in 2-D with some wall space.

The nice thing is that I still have a tree from “the woods” (a little spread of forested land that’s been in my family for several generations) because that’s where the birch tree branches are from.

The “tree” is ornamented with lace doilies crocheted by my Grandma, a gift from a good friend, and some simple hand-made ornaments out of felt and ribbon. It’s a bit more shabby chic than I typically prefer, but sometimes sentiment over-rides style!

Happy Holidays from the Mess Hall!
