Newspaper wrapped around base
Spray Paint, I bought my spray paint at Michaels, and used my 40% off coupon. The paint is by Design Master. I used "October Brown" also called Milk Chocolate #718
And for the other tree I used "Terra Cotta" #796
And here are the finished trees, I love them spray painted in these colors. I keep mine up year around and put tiny decorations on them according to the time of year it is. I have tiny beeswax candles that I put on with thin wire and I use the tiny seed lights with brown color wire
The tree below has the tiny seed lights, if you look close you can probably see them.
Have fun and start spraying
I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday with your families. God Bless our soliders and their families!!

2. Second be sure that the object you spied was indeed a baby by employing classic sniffing techniques. If you smell baby powder and the wonderful aroma of wet diapers then:
3. Next you will need to flatten the baby before actually beginning the hugging process. Note: The added slobber should help in future steps by making the "paw slide" easier
4. The 'Paw Slide' simply slide paws around baby and prepare for possible close-up
5. Finally if a camera is present you will need to execute the difficult and potential "hug, smile, and lean" so as to achieve the best photo quality.
Dogs, if this is done properly, it will secure you a warm, dry, climate-controlled environment for the rest of your life!

It was not hard for the farmer to purchase his goods in feedsacks. The flour industry consumed the largest share of the feedsack market with more than 42 percent. Sugar was next with 17 percent followed by feed, seeds, rice, and fertilizer. These feedsacks came in different sizes, and the quality of the cloth varied with the item it carried. Sugar sacks, for example, were much finer in weave. By 1914, sacks came in 10, 6, 4, 3, 2 and 1 pound sizes, although these sizes varied by manufacturer. President Roosevelt standardized sizes in 1937. A 50 pound feedsack measured 34 x 38 inches. A 100 pound sack measured 39 x 46.
