Using the template, draw in the opposite side of the felt, as many trees and stripes as you want for your frame. Cut them inside the lines. With your finger, spread the glitter glue on the edges of the trees. Let it dry for a couple seconds. With hot glue, attach the stripes on top of the tree – on its back side. Repeat the same procedure with pom poms, but this time on the front side of the tree.

Remove the back part of the frame. Using hot glue, fix the twine horizontally on the frame sides. Repeat the same procedure but this time in the vertical direction and creating nuts when the twines cross each other. Hang the trees using the clothespins.


Tips: you can also change the trees for Santa’s Boots! The tree can also be used as Christmas Cards decoration!

Orange Cake!!!

I am not a big fan of sharing my dessert recipes. But a beloved friend asked me to share this one and to be very democratic, I decided to share with all friends of mine (you included, of course). Let’s take notes:


  • 2 Oranges

  • 1/2 cup of oil (I use Canola Oil)

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 cups of flour

  • 2 cups of sugar

  • 1 table spoon of baking powder

    Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF.

    Wash one orange, peel it and remove the ring. Cut the orange in small slices.

    In a blender add the orange slices, oil and eggs. Mix it until you get a white and fluffy cream. Reserve.

    Put the flour, sugar and the baking powder in a bowl. Add the previous preparation and mix it carefully with a fouet. Put in a greased and dusted with flour cake pan, and bake it for about 40 minutes.

    Orange Syrup: make an orange juice with the second orange. Put a cup of orange juice with 2 cups of confectionery sugar in a saucepan. Stir until well combined and leave it over medium heat until boiling for 2 minutes. Pour over cake and serve.

  • Tip: You can also dust your cake with confectionery sugar and make beautiful decorations!!!
