Caring and Sharing 2014

I am really excited about how our Caring and Sharing tree turned out this year. I will admit I was really nervous because I had one idea and the lady I work with had another, but when it was finished, I had to admit it is the cutest one we've done. The lady I work with ended up buying it (again)--and gave me last year's tree that she bought. So now we each have one that fits our taste and style. She's getting really close to retirement, so this may have been our last year. Kinda makes me sad.
The star on top is made of chicken wire and twigs and the tree sits in an old tin wash basin. 

 The students in our classes make all the ornaments---and this is the first year I haven't had to go back and fix them. 
 My mom helped eleven fifth graders sew these reindeer. She has  a lot more patience than me and they are full of character.
 We used twine, wrapped it around a balloon and then dipped in diluted glitter mod podge. Surprisingly, I had a boy who was awesome at this.

I loved how these turned out. We just mod lodged burlap on the star. Notice the dried oranges too. The kids were pretty funny about these--they wanted to know how old the oranges were.
 This is just wrapping paper fan-folded.
