I was recently asked to come up with a craft for our Relief Society Christmas Activity next month. There were several ideas that went through my head, one of the first was blocks. I know it is a pretty popular thing to do Christmas blocks with lettering and pictures. I had figured out lettering to spell several different winter words. Then I thought it would be cute to show how the blocks could stack up to look like a tree. That is when I got the idea to add some wire and everything just rolled on from there. It was so satisfying to be creating again!
Originally, I was going to add pictures and scrapbook paper. Things changed when I started to pull out all my embellishments and paint. There are several different ways you could 'trim' the tree. I would like to do some variations with newsprint, stamping, pictures, scrapbook paper, sheet music and fabric...maybe even wrapping paper or old Christmas cards!
