Hobbycraft supports the charity "Together for short lives" so has a close relationship with the Hospice.
A very large decopatch (7 foot high) tree was donated, along with the glues, brushes and papers to decorate it. Laura and I went along to show them how to decopatch it (the art of glueing bits of paper to a mache form).
First the branches have to be inserted and patched into place with lots of glue and brown paper, then the decorative tissue paper can be applied.
Can't wait to see it finished.
