Nancy Hartness: December 2008 Archives
This year Amy Butler offers several free holiday pattern downloads on her website www.amybutlerdesign.com. I fell in love with her Tree Forest creation the minute that I saw it. I had visions of these crafty holiday trees flowing throughout my house. Well the "power doer" took over and I started making my own tree garden. Easy, Easy, Easy. I am talking minutes to make these up!
Instead of groupings nestled around my house, my tree forest is going to be the centerpiece for my holiday brunch buffet. For my base I used a ½ yard piece of natural canvas UR-128 and trimmed the ends with Michael Miller's Pindot bias tape HDDR-392 in apple green. After arranging my trees I added clear glass stones, twigs, tree greenery, glitter ball ornaments, candles and several strands of battery operated mini bulb tree lights. The picture does not do this justice...It looks so cute!
The choices are endless of the patterns, colors and embellishments you can use.
This is my type of winter gardening!!!
HO! HO! HO!
