let me know if this isn't the right place to post this:
i sewed felt balls with foam cores in brown, green, ivory & dark red. you can see them here on the tree complete (w/o and w/flash):http://a196.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/47/l_8251defe1c3c7cac10920ff00cfc1d6b.jpghttp://a35.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/112/l_30900ed9f2ab37068d87903658bf942a.jpg
i cut up a silk poinsetta bush and lined the petals with gold leaf pen and wrapped foam balls in ivory & gold pipe cleaners.http://a117.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/33/l_6c121103bdeb7a79353ea4dfb17b32ac.jpg
i wrapped foam balls (see a pattern here?) in wide green glitter ribbon and tied the ends with red and gold tinsel pipe cleaners. they kinda look like giant candies.http://a515.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/90/l_03cd6029271cba8fc05fb73ca19c1632.jpg
i also made the tree topper by gluing dark red tulle to a golden glitter apple in honor of Her Lady ov Discord.http://a539.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/76/l_d68cc087931ce6ce06b020dc691a25ba.jpg
the Tree also features gold plastic balls, gold glitter snowflakes, pearl strands, big green jingle bells, dark red glittery gifts & ivory and gold wired ribbon. its sort of pet friendly so my cat won't end up with broken glass in her paws. that was my main concern as this is her first tree since she was a wee kitten (she is 11 pounds of muscle now) and i wanted soft and lightweight ornaments until i know she can be trusted not to bring the whole rig down on her fat cat-head.
