Yarn Trees!

Made these out of wrapping paper stuffed with a little batting to make them stiff. Wrapped them with yarn and added some ornaments from the target $1 ornament bins and some handmade burlap flowers.
I put them in some decorative urns I had laying around unused and added a bow. I want to make a third in an olive green...guess i need to hit the $1 bins for another trio or ornaments.

found these really cool laser cut frames at michaels...added some garland, yarn, and burlap.
I really enjoy making burlap flowers. super easy and even though the material is bulky and messy, it's rather forgiving when you hot glue it. I like!
