Making Trees

A few years ago I wanted to change my landscape for the fall so I came up with this very cheap idea for making them.  I just so happened to find miniature wire leaf garland at Dollar Tree and it came in green, red, and orange in an oak, maple, and a regular oblong leaf pattern. (Of course, I bought them all.)  I got some sticks from my yard to use for the tree trunks and hot glued them to some plywood squares I had in my scrap wood drawer.  Added a little moss, then twisted the wire around the branches.  Voila!  A green tree for summer and a red tree for fall.  For winter,  I put a little batting on the base and leave the tree bare.

Here's how they look in the dollhouse landscape.
