WW - A Christmas Craft

I made something my grandmother & mother used to make. And I used to make with them also when I was little.




I don't know the official name of these. But you basically gather up different kinds of pine branches. Then can you guess what the base of this is?

Well I will tell you - it is a potato. You get a potato, if bottom not flat enough, cut out a piece of cardboard to fit and attach with a nail. Then you just add your branch clippings around the potato, and fill it in. (Use a nail or similar item to make holes in potato - for branches to go in.

And Voila! your fancy ornamental Christmas decoration!
