The tree is simply a stack of felt circles, with a roll of brown felt at the bottom for the trunk, and a gold star at the top.
All the circles started out the same size, and I trimmed them individually to they would form a nice tree shape. (That part took a long time!) Then, using heavy thread and a loooong needle designed for sewing dolls, I stacked the circles. To give the tree more stability, I also added a little glue between the layers.
Then I took this picture, below.
So I went to a picture editing site I just heard about, pixlr-o-matic...
...and I turned it into this! Now THAT'S what I call a fun picture!
Pixlr-o-matic is really easy to use--I love things that are uncomplicated and intuitive (because I HATE to read directions!)--and I highly recommend it. You upload a picture, choose your lighting, special effect, and boarder, and you are done! I had a blast trying out all the different options, so I can see that many of my photos will be more interesting in the future. You should try it!
