Moss Christmas Tree

I saw these moss trees some time ago and today attempted to mimic them.  I mod podged burlap onto a piece of wood and then applied the moss, mini-pinecones, and berries with tacky glue and a glue gun.  I drilled two holes and ran plaid berry fabric to make a bow.

I went into Jo-Ann's to buy some of the infamous burlap.  I went up to the busy counter and the lady growled.."Not this stuff again...why do you girls keep buying this burlap?"  I thought it was  funny.  There was another girl in line with a cart full of it.  "Idaho Potato Sack Burlap!"  It is pretty nasty stuff to work with..but can be oh so pretty! :)

Candace... that is so cute! you did a fabulous job!
I went to buy burlap last month, but I changed my mind. There wasn't much of a selection where I went.
Does it smell? When I was teaching we would have potato sack races, and the sacks smelled horribly! :)
great job!
