A Collection of Christmas Tree Crafts

I have trigger finger from using the glue gun, but in my ring finger. The finger is immobilized so I am impaired from writing, typing, crafting and even brushing my hair, If I try left handed, well I guess I don't need to brush my hair after all. I'm typing with one finger right now, the splint I crafted gets in the way.

Yes, I crafted my own splint using common household items. First I tried a foam nail file then half of a wooden clothespin. Finally the answer is a hair clip. 

So after crafting, I have been doing some one hand typing for reviews for my Review, reading, writing blog. A lot of TV and some reading - and surfing.

I thought I'd share some of my crafting finds. So here we go in no particular order, some speak for themselves and others will have input from me.

Christmas tree from newspaper.  I have seen them before but none like this. Large and appears to be made not only with higher quality newsprint/paper but I don't think the rolls of paper are glued to a Styrofoam cone.

These are some pretty yarn wrapped trees. I use jiffy yarn or homespun yarn.  The jiffy yarn I do very neatly but the homespun, I need chaotic wrapping. I like how these patterns were made.
The second yarn tree photo comes from Uncommon Designs and they have (yes they, 2 ladies named Bonnie & Trish) have a mini tutorial here.

 This is a wood tree attached to the wall from HGTV.

Jingle Bells.
