I swear you can make just about anything out of paper.  It’s an amazing medium because it’s inexpensive, easy to manipulate, and can yield a wide variety of surprising results.  These adorable, twisty trees by Katie at matsutake are a great example!  She used brown paper lunch sacks and Mod Podge to create the trunks, roots, and branches, then topped them with yarn pom poms in various fall colors.  With a $1 package of bags, you can make yourself an entire autumn forest!  [how to make paper bag fall trees][via Mod Podge Rocks!]
