My Handmade Tree

Here's a quick peek at my "handmade" tree -- i.e. all the ornaments were either gifts or handmade (and sometimes both).

These are the stars I made from my son's artwork:

And these stars I made last year.  I wrote about them HERE.

This Deadpool ornament is a prototype I made for a video I did for the Marvel YouTube channel several years ago.  You don't see my face, but those are my hands in the video!

One year I made a whole bunch of paper diamonds for an online workshop I was teaching.

There are several felt roses stuck into empty spots on the tree. I originally created them as part of a Valentine's Day place setting.  Find the post about them HERE.

This was the most difficult ornament I've ever made and I'll never do it again. I can't even remember how it goes together, but I remember wanting to give up multiple times!

I woodburned some bamboo cutlery one year.  You can read about it HERE.
