I made one of my tinsel trees into a Kermit the Frog tree last year, but didn't have a skirt for it.  I remembered that we had a Kermit "collar" that was The ManFlesh's when he was like 4 or 5 years old and put it on the tree stand. BUT it didn't really cover much.  When I asked if he would mind if I used it to make a proper tree skirt, he said "do whatever you want with it."  So when I took down the decorations last year I set the tree and the collar aside, then went and bought material for it.  It sat in my craft room until last night! 



I know that the light/dark of the collar/body are reversed, but the collar was dark enough that when I put it with darker material it lost it's Kermit vibe.



I am kind of in love with this little tree now!  I have two other tinsel trees this size, but in other colors. Now that I have a pattern for a skirt, I hope I'll make skirts for them as well.  Hopefully before another year goes by, but...

How do you do all this stuff? So cool.

I have grabbed you on my buddy list. So I get to follow you wherever you go.

What a fun adventure with you!

Wonderful Kermit. I could kill Jim Henson for dying  Cheesy I still sing all his songs to the children. And let them play with my puppets with them, too.

Pretty much any Muppet tree would be top notch, but Kermit is the one for me.
