O Christmas Tree

In a few days I'll be heading out to Australia for the month! We're going to see the "rellies" as my husband would mum-in-law, sis-in-law, etc to celebrate Christmas and introduce little baby girl to everyone too:)  I'm very excited and a bit anxious at the same time as this is a very long flight and now we have two kiddies instead of one..BUT I keeping reminding myself that no matter how difficult (or not) the flight might be, it will end and 16 hrs is but a quick blink in time.....well at least I'm going to keep telling myself that!!

It's been hectic and busy around here getting ready for the trip but I've managed to get a little creative time in and I made this little canvas to leave up at the house in place of the real tree we will not be putting up here this year:

I saw this totally awesome video here by Christy Tomlinson (whose work I love!) and I then saw the color palette over at TCR and came up with the idea of my Christmas tree!  Here's a few close ups:

I picked up the frame from the $1 store (a buck can you believe it!!) and sprayed it was originally grey. Next I cut and painted the background canvas. Then I used all manner of scrap paper and fabric to make my tree, cut the star from my roll of ducting tape (not to be confused to duct tape) and voila! my tree was born! Super easy, festive project if you want to give it a try! If you do end up making this, please send me a link in the comments, I'd love to see them all!

OK, in case I don't get a chance to get back onto my blog before the year's end I would just like to wish everyone a HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
