I was in my backyard, and I noticed through that there was one tree that still had bright red leaves on it while all around, the other trees were bare. I got closer and noticed that another tree was still green and thought, "Hey, Christmas colors!" I took a picture and this is what I got:
So then I thought it would make a nice (and let's not forget easy) Christmas decoration. It was a little boring in the frame all by itself, so I made yarn balls to sit around it.
I used the general idea of this tutorial, only I used regular white glue, small 7-inch balloons, and crochet thread. It was actually fun popping the balloons and listening to them shrivel up as they lost their air.
Here's a close up of some of the yarn balls:
I think the balls would also be cute hanging on a Christmas tree. You could place them so that a light or two from a strand of lights on your tree is inside them.
