Homemade Trees

Homemade trees make an appearance around my house fairly often: crocheted, knitted, stitched, felted, wooden, paper, cardboard, and simple branches in vases filled with sand. So when excited kids, air dry modeling clay and small bits of trees get together, yet another homemade forest is born:

You can let the clay dry with the mini-trees stuck in the stand, but the branches dry out in a few days and the needles make a pretty mess. I recommend making the clay base taller with a larger, deeper hole, leaving out the branch until the clay is dry. This creates a reusable pine stand that can make appearances in any season, for colorful ponies and woodland animals alike.20141119_141952
