Consider making this folk-art tree for next Christmas season.
As some of us have already begun dismantling this year's Christmas tree, the tree made in this video most certainly would not be tossed to the sidewalk. I do not know much about this technique, except that it seems fairly simple to make and that the outcome is really cool. Watch this video and give it a try. I will be happy to show pictures of your creations on my blog so don't be shy and send them my way when you're finished.
