This is the history-for-kids.com tree from the 2011 festival. It has a pirate puppet on the top instead of a fairy, and the decorations are poems and pictures from the history-for-kids.com website.
Making those little decorations was a lot harder than you might expect - getting everything centred and lined up was quite tricky. The tree came third, which I was quite pleased with, until I discovered I was beaten by someone who hung toast from the branches. Thanks to everyone who voted for us anyway!
