Paper Tree

It has been far too long since I last blogged and now I am at the point where I am not sure where to start up again. I have a lot to say about my Grandfather's funeral  but that will have to wait for when I have the time to do the experience justice.

So We will start with my Mom coming to visit and some of the fun we have had since She's been here, like making my kids room look like a kids room.

This is an idea that had been forming in my head for a while but it wasn't until my mother in law made me a paper leaf wreath that I knew I was actually going to do it.

So here is my brown paper tree.

I bought a giant roll of post office brown packaging paper and with the help of my Mom crinkled and stapled it to the wall until we had a very awesome tree. I wish that I had a more creative solution, than using a staple gun but I didn't.

Caught in action, that rarely happens!

Then I took About 7-8 different kinds of scrapbook paper ad cut out various size leaves and stapled them to the tree in satisfying adorable bundles. {good trick, pick double sided paper}

I love what it does for there room. It adds that element of fun!

Next I have to make the japanese paper lantern I got from World Market into a Sun, and make a few paper birds and their room will be transformed!
I hope you are all having a wonderful season so far.

At my kids school that have trees like this all up and down the hallways. They are so cool, and for a while I considered doing something like this too, but couldn't bring myself to attack the walls with staples! Way to step out on a LIMB (ha ha!) Looks so fun.

I love how 3D that is! I hadn't imagined it that way when you talked about doing - especially the leaves hanging down rather than lying flat on the ceiling. It oozes adventure - it's awesome!
