Our craft group -- the 6 of us call ourselves the Sugar Maple Crafters -- spent all sessions this year creating homemade decorations for a 6 foot Christmas tree at the Wausau Festival of Trees. (90-some trees and decorations are all donated, raffled off, and proceeds go to Wausau Aspirus Hospice House. The project raises around $150,000 annually.) This was our group's first attempt. We are anxiously waiting to see how well our tree does. Below are views of a few other entries at the 2009 Festival of Trees.
Above: this tree's theme was The Wizard of Oz. Beneath it is a "dollhouse", but notice that this dollhouse has landed on top of the Wicked Witch and smashed her flat! . . . .
