A Well Crafted Tree Farm

We have been making so many crafts these past few weeks that I haven't stopped long enough to realize that I'm sitting amidst a tree farm! I have all sorts of trees in my lineup this year, here is one of my favorites!

This project was a labor of family love...by that I mean that my mom, dad and husband all helped bring this idea to reality. From peeling the pine cones to patiently gluing them on the crafting cones and then creatively adhering them to antique light fixture bases...we all had something to do with the process and I'm so thrilled with how they turned out.

We used various spindles for the tree trunks as well as many different antique light fixtures for the bases. Everyone of these is a bit different!

Thanks for taking a peek. I'll have another tree project to share with you all tomorrow!
