The Artfull Tree is full of art in every sense—filled with art from the museum's collection and filled with inspired ideas for turning that art—or any art—into new works for you and your family to treasure.
Based on art from the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Museum's collection, each of the 33 projects in this book features an image of the original work and information about the art and artist, as well as, a step-by-step guide by the authors through the process of creating a wide range of ornaments, from silhouettes to felt snowmen, from punch-needle hearts to paper doves, from cooper stars to cross-stitch stockings.

Great Ideas and good directiona.
I ended up buying two copies by mistake so someone will be getting a great present. I got to see many of the ornaments on the actual tree in the museums in December and have since made several. I made two dozens poinsettias using Christmas cards for party favors at an event next Christmas. I put two sided tape on the backs so they could also be used as gift decorations. They're beautiful.
Bought this when I visited several years ago. Loaned it out and it’s now in the wind… Soooo had to buy another one.

I simply love this book. The illustrations are beautiful, and the directions are clear and easy to follow. I can't wait to try making everything in this book. I would also highly recommend this book as a gift for someone who likes to DIY artful projects.
