I have finally finished the project that I have been working on all year.
I was asked to make the "Founder's Tree" for this year's Festival of Trees fundraiser for the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. The tree will be auctioned off on November 28th. Fingers crossed it makes lots of money for the charity!
I painstakingly stripped an artificial tree of all its needles to use as the base. I used hand dyed wool felt fringe wrapped around each branch and then anchored with wire to create felt needles. I decorated the tree with "glass" ornaments based on vintage designs, yarn tinsel and twisted "metal" icicles.
