Reading Tree

I LOVE Pinterest! It has actually been a real blessing to me! It has gotten my creativity flowing again! If you don’t know what Pinterest is, just click the link and figure it out for yourself!
I have been trying to not just pin things but actually do them! I have tried several new recipes. And I am trying to actually do some of the ideas I find on Pinterest too!
I saw this the other day and loved it!

I am always looking for cheap, bold and colorful alternatives when decorating, since we live in an apartment. I don’t want to paint but I can’t handle the bland walls.

Here is my tree. I put it in my daughter’s room.

I might go back and add the pictures; I’m not sure. Making the tree was so simple. I took a pack of scrapbook paper and traced my mixing bowls to make straight circles. I then cut the circles and glued them together. I cut the tree from cardboard. Luckily, we had just bought some bookshelves so we had a long piece. But if you don’t have that I’m sure you can make the tree in two parts.
With my sister’s help, I arranged the circles and tacked them to the wall! I then took a spice rack I wasn’t using and screwed it in at the base. It’s the perfect size for all her little cardboard books! And whoa-la! Reading Tree!
