A tree for every season



Can you believe I started these tree plaques last January?  I finally decided to whip up another batch of salt dough and finish them.  The summer and winter trees were already done, but I needed to make the spring and fall trees.  They will be a gift for my mom for Christmas this year. (Yes, I'm starting early!)  Once they are completely dry, I'll paint them and seal them with several coats of polyurethane spray.  I'm hoping the paint will help distinguish between seasons more fully (right now spring and summer seem a bit ambiguous to me).  I'm also entering them in the 2010 Holiday Handmade Crusade.

  1. It's beautiful. I wonder how awesome they will look after you complete them!
    And thank you for the link for crafting forum! I always wanted to do something with my hands, but I didn't have too many ideas. Now I will have them plenty! :)
