At TIOT Trees are green or other colours

Hi All. Nice to have you call in and thank you for your visit today.

Time for new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and it is one you all enjoy I'm sure. The theme is Trees are Green-or any other Colour . Can't wait to see all the wonderful ideas you have and if you need some ideas do pop to TIOT and see what the rest of our lovely team have made. If you are chosen as one of our top 5 you could be of a guest designer for a future challenge.

I made this wreath that tells the story of a tree. The centre is a twig and represents the branches and it also has buds and small leaves. I made felt leaves and coloured some of them with paint to show how they change colour in Autumn. Then I stuck on foraged bits and bobs to show the fruits that they bear. Last thing was the feathers as trees are homes to so many birds. Not sure about the ribbon and webbing except that they filled a few spaces.

It started life as a polystyrene hoop that I painted green. Some of things I pinned on but mostly I used a glue gun to stick them on.

I would like to enter this at Frilly and Funkie where they want to see some mesh on your project. I used mesh ribbon on my wreath

Love Chrissie xx
