Crafty Ladies.

Jen has a "parenting" group that still gets together ever since their kids were teeny-tiny.  This month they wanted to do an easy holiday craft, or two.  Something fun, quick, cute, and simpe enough to do while drinking wine!
Jen was co-hosting at her friend Debra's house... Here's the inspiration for a craft they chose from Better Homes and Gardens.

The ladies each had a painted pot (took Jen like 15 seconds to do each), a chunk of floral foam, some loose moss, a skewer, and old books. Side-note: Jen's tree is made from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I don't know why I think that's funny. BHG suggests sheet music too.

The tutorial says start with pieces cut or ripped to be about a 41/2 inch square.  Jen ripped, other ladies cut.  Personal preference.  

and here's Jen's at home in her kitchen.  

Easy for all ages.  How do you think we should top it off?  Gumdrop? Red buttons? glittered paper star?
An easy holiday craft to put in your back pocket.
