I just completed my Christmas Tree.
It's taken me a week because I keep adding,
now it is an explosion of Origami Birds,
something I've wanted for the past three years.

I hand made 99% of my trimmings
but I did use some of my favorites
from Christmas Past.

I lightly dusted some twigs from the back yard
with white spray paint.
My tall slim tree from twenty years ago
needed a little something.

They are all ready to
take flight!

Some of the birds, I put on skewers, you
can also use them as plant stakes.

I used all types of paper to make my birds,
card stock, scrap booking, sheet music, old books,
anything I could get my hands on.

I've always loved working with music paper.
I had done the balls a few years ago and thought they were a
perfect fit for my Origami tree.

This is a fun stackable one I did.
Daddy, mom and baby.

I made several three bird garlands
by stringing them together.

This one was fun to do.
I used old clothes pins, Spanish moss,
and some red berries.

Now that it's done
it's the perfect tree...
...for me!

I'm linking with some fun parties this week
