Making TreesThursday, December 15, 2011
My friend Cindy always puts on the very nicest Christmas parties! This year, not only did we get together for our usual fun (and a terrific cookie swap -- I made my pistachio and cherry Mexican wedding cakes -- everything everyone else made was fantastic as always but one of the really fun things was white chocolate peppermint popcorn balls) but we did a craft -- Christmas trees! All the girls made Christmas trees for their homes, and...well, since we're Jewish...I made a forest tree with moss at the base and super-snuggly warm yarn at the top.
I think these are the ones Cindy and Darlene made:
It's just a styrofoam cone, glue or straight pens to keep everything held onto the cone, and yarn:
...and here are all our trees! Mine's on the second row with the moss at the base -- loooved the moss, but it made the biggest, shaggiest mess everywhere when I was putting it on. My favorite is the lighter green one with the pom-poms on the same step, but really they all turned out so great!!
