One thing that I did complete this week was making some little decorations to hang on the "all seasons" tree that I made several months ago. I made it back in January and so far it has been decorated for Valentine's day, Easter and now for summer. It was pretty simple to make and I've kept it out on our dining room table when it is decorated. I'm hoping to keep up with the decorating for various seasons this year and then hanging on to those decorations that I make so I can reuse them next year. I did snap a few pictures when I made the tree in hopes of putting them on the blog that I hadn't even created yet :) Here's how to make an "All Seasons" tree.
Start by chopping a few small branches down from a tree in your yard, or your neighbors yard if your trees don't have nice branches. Then if you want you can give them a quick coat of spray paint. I lightly coated them with a couple colors of metallic paint, but I didn't try to hard to get them completely covered.
The tree sat empty for the last month or so and I finally decided to make something summery for it. All I could think to make were some origami paper cranes and some polka dot curly cues. It could probably use a few more ornaments, but at least it isn't bare anymore!
