|It needed something on the base so I added the fallen leaves.|
|Then the tree looked too naked so I added a few to the branches.|
|The 'leaves' are made from the handles of the Panera bags.|
|If you untwist the paper handles of the bags you get rippled strips that can be stained or painted and scrunched to look like fallen leaves.|
|If you look closely you can see the markings of the Panera bag on the tree limbs.|
Now it just needs a creature.....................stay tuned.
