Today’s crafting

We bought this huge white tree last year and put traditional ornaments on it. 
This year, when we unpacked it,  I thought it looked like a snowman.  So I looked on Pinterest and saw several snowmen trees for inspiration.  

The top hat is made from black posterboard and I used this pattern as a basis 
The eyes and buttons are black yarn pompoms.
The mouth is chenille stems wrapped in black felt.  
The nose is a posterboard cone wrapped with orange yarn.  
The black scarf was crocheted by my mom, my husband used to wear it many years ago when he rode a motorcycle.  
It was fun to do and we are really liking our happy snowman tree. 

Cindy Lou Who Cape 
This is a fleece cape, also inspired by Pinterest, for a granddaughter to wear when her school has its annual Grinch Day.  I think it’s probably too long but it will be easy to shorten.  Fleece doesn’t have to be hemmed so I can just cut it to fit.  
I’m pretty fearless when it comes to whacking fabric 😂

‘‘Tis the season for crafting projects ❤️

Love the idea for a tree. I no longer can stand long enough to get a regular tree all fancy, but this I could easily do and I am sure my grandsons will love it!

What really cute ideas. I was dressing people for the nutcracker and saw at least 6 fully lined capes I had made for my daughters over the years. I am so happy they are being put to good use.

That cape is sweet - "fearless when whacking fabric" made me giggle.

I love your snowman tree. So ingenious!

That snowman tree is so cool! You had asked on my blog whether I use a real camera or a phone camera for my photos...I use my phone camera. It's a Samsung Galaxy S6 - an older model. They're already out with the S9! I pay attention to natural light and composition; it's not just the phone. Thank you for your compliment! :)
