Little Grey Bungalow
I really like that little Christmas tree. I may sit down with the Widget (great-grandkid) and see if we can make a couple of those.
If you make the orange (or lemon) clove things, rolling them in orris root from the local herbalist/health food store helps preserve and dry them so they don't rot. Also, either hanging them bare of wrapping with a ribbon wound around or in netting helps. Refrigerate until they're a bit dry. And use a skewer to poke holes to save your thumb. I've been the on the official 'here, make me these' committee since I was little.Maybe, this year, gumdrop trees! Haven't seen those in years. What fun! Wonder if you can still buy sequin punched ribbon to make dowel Christmas trees?
I don't know, but you could certainly create your own ribbon if you have a one-hold punch and a ruler.
