Sweater Christmas Trees

Christmas decorations are started for this year.  In an attempt to decorate my office next year using a "green" theme, this forest of trees is made from thrift store finds.  It started with this candle stand. 
 Then red sweaters purchased on sale at Goodwill, washed in hot water to felt them, then embroidered in various Christmas quilting designs.  For the base and back of the trees, a thrifted green velveteen blazer was cut up.  After the trees were made, a gift wrap tube was cut up to use as the stand.
 Here is a closer look at the sweater trees.
