Junk Art

lighter airier Happiness tree
   Our Happiness tree was getting a little heavy looking with some browning at the tips of the older leaves.

       I decided to trim off some of the leaves to give the plant a lighter airier look.

       Then I realized that I had a large pile of still serviceable green leaves that it seemed a shame to just throw away.

       So I took and old vase and started to wind the leaves around the inside of the rim and eventually shaped them into a rough-looking ball. I then cut a few stems of red leaves from our Red Robin tree and tucked them into a small opening between the happiness leaves. 

       Voila, junk art.
