Pine Tree make-do and Blue Bird Pin Keep

Standing 9 1/2 inches tall, this ole blue bird pin keep is made from painted and grunged muslin. He's firmly stuffed and attached to an old, antique textile bobbin. I've added rusty jingle bells and safety pins, a blank, stained hang-tag and a strip of cheesecloth for his scarf.
The Make-do Christmas Tree stands on an old branch we cut down from our yard. I've drilled a
hole to secure the tree and wrapped in moss, pip berries and preserved greenery. The tree is made from muslin, painted green, grunged and stained. It stands about 16 inches tall (including the greenery.)
