Chritstmas in July! Thought I would share my shabby brown paper trees

Hi there, coming to you from the land of Tropical storms........So Christmas in July ? My kids are all saying ridiculous that is unless their is going to be Gift exchanges going on. I made these little shabby trees from brown grocer bags so they are actually a free craft.

 this is the link to get all the info to make these cute shabby trees.

 This is them in the plain state. Whats nice about these is you can decorate them anyway you like and you can make them as little or as big as you like.
 I displayed mine on a metal tree with some tins and tea lights .

I just used some torn flannel for garland and some white paint for some snow and buttons and bows for the tree top.

I hope you are able to find some brown grocery sacks , I know that Save-a lot, Publix offers paper or plastic. I tried using a roll of brown paper and it was just much lighter and more flimsy.

So if you want to start early and get your Christmas on this is a free craft that's so much fun! They make nice hostess gifts as well. So just click on the link for directions and have some crafty fun!
