A handmade Christmas Tree

I noticed this Christmas Tree on the work this morning.  There’s an art gallery not too far from where I live, and the sometimes promote local talent from the schools and colleges in my town.  I particularly like this tree because, apart from the little lights twinkling on it, all of the decorations are entirely handmade and stitched.  

As  you can see, each star comes in a different size and colour, and each one had a different quote and Christmas wish on it.  Whoever made this, or group of people, must of been working on this all year I would imagine!  Anyway, I think it’s lovely and they did a really good job at creating this tree.  It had certainly given me ideas to take to my own craft group to talk about.

A handmade Christmas tree

It certainly did not look real but we were satisfied with the results. The structure of the tree is made from bamboo sticks – my husband’s idea. I merely dressed it up to give it a look that resembled a Christmas tree. There was joy in putting it up This base was used for several years until I got the present tree which was bought online. The structure is still there somewhere on the attic but I have no desire to use it now.

What is Christmas without a Christmas Tree? Putting up the tree with carols playing in the background does get us into the mood. We never had this in our culture before but it has been picked up looking around. Making typical Christmas sweets, cleaning up the place, going for choir practice, putting up the crib – these are the things that brought us into the mood in the good old days.

Till about two years ago we used to put up a crib. And that will be another post.
