This week’s Sketch Thursday is more of a project than a sketch. A lot of my friends have been talking about how expensive it’s going to be to buy a tree this holiday season. Personally, I think you just can’t beat a real live, full of pine scent tree, so the cost is worth it. However, I understand that in this economy shelling out $50-60 for something that is going to be thrown out in a month seems silly. So I decided I would try my hand at making my own tree out of cut paper, chalk, twine, and stamps. Although my tree isn’t nearly as large nor does it smell as nice as a real tree, it is very festive, and a great project to do with your family. I spent the first snowy afternoon of December watching Christmas movies and cutting out paper. Sometimes, you just can’t beat that.
