One evening I was searching for a small project to make, something easy to create and something for the holiday season. Outside my window the pine trees swayed in the wind and caught my attention. I wondered how I could use some of my old polymer canes with a holiday tree theme and this is what I came from that evening of play!

I'm learning to use Instagram #brittdesign2 and decided to post my first attempts and actually got an order for more of these. What a nice holiday surprise! They can be used as ornaments, as gift tags or anything else that you think of. A Sharpie is good to write a message or a name or date on the plain backs. I have to make a few more for gifts to close friends and then hopefully I'll have a few in my Etsy shop! www.etsy.com/shop/lindabrittdesign
