So what is a woodland theme without trees ?? My goal was to do a different tree each month of this past year, I did not make that goal. But over the next few days I do have some trees to share. This is a wool tree. I was gifted with some wool sweaters that were felted. I got a very large nail and started cutting circles from the sweaters. I cut a small slit in the center, for the nail.
I just keep making smaller and smaller circles and stacking them. I found the more irregular the circles the better the tree looks (well in my opinion). This would be a fun craft for kids. I thought I would need to glue the nail on some base, but I found the tree stand just fine on their own. I glue a seed pod to the top, easy !!!! Here is another fun stacking felt tree, have fun playing.
I hope you are having a lovely week. We are not Jewish but my father's family is. I have never meet my fathers parents, they died when he was a teen. But I was named after my grandmother Claire. My grandfather Isadore was a baker and I always felt a connection to them. So every year we have a Hanukkah dinner to remember them and family lost in the Holocaust. Tonight we will have what we always have, matzo ball soup and latkes. I am going to make a roasted vanilla pear sauce to go over the latkes with sour cream. Heaven xoxox
