Katie from Matsutake is one of my heroes. She is creative in a way that I dream to be one day, and nothing is too far out there to be a craft supply. Katie's most recent creation is the pom-pom tree series above – made from lunch bags, pom-poms and Mod Podge. They are such a fun addition to a seasonal mantle, and kids can tackle this project. In fact, even my pug Roxie can crumple a lunch bag. Seriously. I've watched her do it.
If you want to visit Katie's tree tutorial, go here. Also don't forget to visit other projects of hers that I've featured (and love): faux vintage hangers, a Stiffy fox lamp and her tutorial on how to transfer inkjet images to wood.
