Christmas Crafting

Anyone who REALLY knows me, knows I'm practically the human spawn of the fictional character, Mrs. Claus (Miss Claus in my case)... so when Christmas rolls around, my domestic soul gets extra excited!

So, in the spirit of Christmas and my love of crafting... here's a DIY project I completed over Thanksgiving.

Paper Tree(s)

- Florist's foam or plastic foam
- Flowerpot
-Wooden skewer
- Sheet Moss
- Vintage Paper, such as book pages or sheet music

Place the florist's form or plastic foam in the flowerpot. Insert the skewer into the middle of the foam. Cover the foam with moss.

Cut of tear the paper into approximately 20 squares (give or take 10) in eight different sizes, starting with 4 1/2-inch squares and decreasing the size by 1/2 inch at a time. Push the squares onto the skewer, graduating from the largest squares at the bottom to the smallest ones on top.

More DIY projects to come!
