Reviews

"The New Christmas Tree is one of those fabulous books that inspires you to start making things right away--even if you're not crafty."
--Parade

"With her step-by-step ornament instructions, as well as advice on buying and maintaining trees and other decorations, Brown turns tree decorating into an intensely personal experience."
--Los Angeles Times

"Carrie Brown's recently released The New Christmas Tree may be just what you need to get that creative sap flowing. Her book presents 24 ideas for rethinking the tree, starting with the basics: picking the tree, what types work best with certain designs and caring for your festive foliage. . . . Beautifully photographed and coffee-table ready, the book is also practical, containing detailed instructions on how to recreate the featured trees."
--Associated Press

"A treasure trove of ideas for those looking to add a creative twist to their holiday cheer. Highlights include the paper white tree, inspired by the cut-paper banners in Mexico, the pin tree, which turns pincushions into ornaments, and the copper and cork tree, wrapped in wine-cork garlands. Brown includes directions on what to collect (such as the lights) and what to make; the latter includes everything from simple marshmallow garlands for a Hansel and Gretel tree to quilled paper birds on the birdland tree. There's no shortage of clever ideas, especially for those who'd like to produce ornaments without much fuss. Brown is at her best in suggesting simple crafts that will make an impressive statement."
