The 100th Day of School "tree"

Last year when my daughter was in Kindergarten, we had to come up with a collection or something to bring in for the 100th day of school.  We decided to make a pom pom tree with 100 pom poms!  It was so much fun.  We found a few branches with good "y" shapes at the top and stuck them in some air clay.  We used the color blue since that is the school color.  Then we counted out assorted sizes and shades of blue of the pom poms, 100 to be exact!  We glued on the big ones first to give it a good base and then filled in with the small ones.  The best glue to use is Fabric Tac (can buy it at Michaels - don't by the generic kind - you'll regret it).  Hot glue is too hot on the fingers and tacky glue takes way too long to dry.  Once you try fabric tac you'll never go back!  It's amazing (but stinky).  Anyways, the finished product came out better than I imagined.  Almost looks like a giant truffala tree from the Lorax!
