Creatures on the Tree

Last night we set up our tiny apartment tree. Instead of buying ornaments, I like to carve and paint my own.

Here are a few ornaments I have already made:

A red tree vole

An immature wolf eel

A holiday-colored beetle

A prickly pear cactus

A hooded merganser

A purple sea urchin

My latest creation, a wind scorpion (a beautiful desert arachnid)

I'll post others as they are created and hung.

The vole and merganser are my favorites. Those are really cool. Please post more photos of new creations!

These are awesome! I can't wait to see the rest. I am having a hard time picking my favorite!

What an awesome idea! You do great work. I, too, look forward to seeing the others.
