The leaves are hand cut from recycled leather, punched around with a leather punch, and then crocheted around with free-form crochet. Some of the leaves have wire added so they will stand up and not just hang. The nest was made with several strands of yarn, fuzzy yarn and jute and crocheted in a basic bowl shape, I added a few scraps of leather to make it look more nest like, I just tied them through the holes in the crochet. I crocheted the eggs in the round with a small hook for a tight stitch and filled them with fiber fill. The mama and baby birds are also hand crocheted with out a pattern, and were stitched to the tree when photographing so we could move it around easier. I added as many details as I could, crocheted moss covering the cement in the base, a mushroom, knots in the trunk, nest, birds, eggs and fungus or moss crawling up the sides of the branches.
The tree is approximately 7 feet x 7 feet.
