I participated with a group from work who decorated small pine trees to take to hospital patients over Christmas. This was the tree I created. I spent a Sunday afternoon hanging these red glass balls, creating popcorn strings (this took 3 bags of microwave popcorn, that's a lot for a small tree, of course that might be due to the fact that I had to sample every bag! LOL), and then I cross stitched the tree topper (a pattern I got off the Luli blog; Luli.).
Among the glitz and glamour of all the other trees, my homespun Christmas tree was a big hit!
