Bountiful Holiday Christmas Trees

Decorating your tree(s) on a creative budget...
Using my oven, I hand dried lemon and orange slices and bunched them up with berries and cinnamon sticks. An inexpensive way to decorate any festive tree. Providing a cozy seasonal sent that lasts through the holidays.
I recycled fabric, hand ripped to get an old country feel that the client wanted.
Hand dry apple slices as well, sprinkle lemon juice on the apples to preserve them from browning too much.
To complete the look, I finished the base by filling old baskets with pine cones, orange and lemon slices and recycled old boxes for display gifts to match the tree(s)
