A Handful of Trees

Awhile ago, I fell in love with some hand trees I found over at So You Think You Are Crafty.

We were finally able to make our own.

I just purchased some really cheap canvas' and covered them with burlap. Next, I spent forever cutting out leaves with my rotary tool. I folded the fabric over a few times so, that I wasn't cutting out one leaf at a time. I used mod podge to adhere the leaves and trunk.

The last one is waiting for Chickie's hand. She will be here on Saturday. I can't wait. I miss her so.

These look awesome in my dining room.

That is so amazingly cute. I wonder if I can convince my husband we should do that. First, I want to convince him to let me paint the dining room.

Those look awesome! I just might have to work on that while my mom is visiting in another week! What a cute thing to hang on the wall. I saw it on that blog but saved the page and forgot about it! Thanks for the reminder and hopefully I can copy you soon!

Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and
let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its
a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
