Package Tree

Sorry to be MIA. So many things I'd like to post are gifts and I really like to keep those a secret before giving them away.'s a quick project, inspired by this cake stand tree I found on Pinterest. (If you haven't discovered it yet, it is addictive inspiration for all sorts of ideas, projects, photos and recipes...and so much more! Leave your email if you need an invite.)

I needed a centerpiece for our family get together. Somehow I'm always intimidated by centerpieces. I'm not gifted with flowers and I never want to spend money on them.'s my inexpensive, Pinterest inspired centerpiece.

I used scrapbook paper so I could get a good monochromatic look. I stacked two little boxes for the trunk and attached the trunk to the tree with glue dots.
