Green Apple Tree makes a Twosome

Pull out the party favors!  I finished it!

I had high hopes of completing the yellow tree also, but that never happened.
 Other projects happened though, and I will get around to posting them this week!
I kinda forgot to snap some pics of the process, but really, it's pretty straight forward.
Cut apples,hot glue, burn fingers,  and glue some more.....lather, rinse, repeat!

When it came to filling in all the holes, I went to the dollar store and bought two rolls of their glitzy tulle  fabric.  I eagerly chopped up the first roll into 6x6 squares, singing look at me go!  They got down to 4x4 by the start of the second roll and by the end I was using 3x3 squares, and my singing turned into a frantic whisper "Come on baby....Momma just needs a few more pieces."
  The crowning glory was made from two gold stars I snatched from my Christmas tree.  I forgot to look for a cheap star at the dollar store.  I cut one of the stars right down the center, and glued the two halves to the center of the whole star.

Green Girl  measures in at 44"

Shes not as tall as Big Red, who measures a whopping 54".  

And now, the twosome:

Yep, we got more snow last night.  But on the upside, it was only -3 C when I took these pictures.  We have improved from the -30 C that plagued us just days ago!

Hopefully Miss Yellow  will be about 34".  As soon as I find some more cardboard, cut yellow apples, and burn my fingers I will take pics of the trilogy.  Luckily, we just bottled some orange chocolate port from a kit we bought a few months back.

 That will soothe the glue burns.
