WIP Gingerbread Tree

I call it the Gingerbread Tree, though you can't see why in the pictures. My concept art for it makes much more sense.... but I kind of soaked that paper when my tea mysteriously spilled itself...

Anyway this project has absolutely absorbed all of my free time.

 OK, so you have this tree... then a couple of cardinals...a "root ball" and ribbon...

Behold! the tree stands! Sort of.

This is the general idea, though not laying down on a table. The tree will be nestled into a weighted bottom and with birds hanging out. Add in some details and hopefully it will equal something grand. Honestly I hate posting WIP, I mean if someone showed me THIS and said "isn't it great!" I would be liable to hit them. You gotta trust me though, it will look better when it's done.


  1. Holy yarn - this is going to be awesome! :)
    ps I'm having a giveaway on my blog with lots of cool goodies - check it out! :)

  2. I've wanted to make a tree for years after seeing someone on another site crochet one out of newspaper for a contest. What sort of yarn did you use? It came out so bark-like. I'm guessing it had some nubbies or something to make it all ripply?
