Tree construction

Spring forth creativity from brown craft paper, plastic grocery bags, and packing bubbles! Hey, why not construct or shall I say "grow" a tree indoors? Let us make it floor to ceiling too.

Crumple with artistic ferocity.
 Staple happy and forming a grand tree trunk.
Not bad for a child who does not like heights very much...now start stuffing until you can not stuff anymore!
Branch making 101: do the twist!

Our lovely Giving Tree before leaves.


  1. O my gosh...I am so happy to have found your blog from you commenting on my blog!

    The name of the blog is so clever and I am entranced by your gifted writing style! And this...this giving tree!! WoW! Can I pin it to pinterest? So cool. Can't wait to read more.

  2. Hi Allison, so pleased you stopped by. Thank you for your very kind words! People should definitely stop by your lovely blog: http://totustuusfamily.blogspot.com/

    And yes, please pin what you like. :)

  3. This is super cool....if only we had a big enough house!

  4. Thank you Jennifer. And believe it or not, the room we have the tree in is super small.

  5. Thank you Jessica. Our room is going through another transformation & in disarray, but the tree is still there.
