A little monkeying around with this old Barrel of Monkeys game produced a cute little tree.
Another coffee pot, more cookie cutters make another tree...
This is tiny measuring cup from a childs baking set.
I took the tiny measuring cup, added a tiny tree, and tiny cookie cutters—the result—a tiny decorated tree. This one is only six inches tall.

I decorate a lot of trees for the Festival of Trees in our community (I am on the organizing committee), but when they decided to suspend the event this year due to the economy, I was left with a bunch of trees (picked up at garage sales and Goodwill stores) and a wide variety of decorations. I decided to decorate the trees anyway and put them in the shop. I thought it would be better than storing these for another year.
