This weeks challenge: Dare to … deck the halls!
Make something new to deck your halls. Did you find something in a catalog that you wish you had? Wreaths, stockings, pillows or advent calendars?
This Christmas was a little different. Things needed to be BABY proof. No small items, no glass decorations and everything needed to fit high up on a shelf.
So here are a few creations of my own.
I made tissue paper poinsettias for the tree this year. They really added a bit of color and an over all feel or joy to the tree. I also made paper Christmas ornaments. Easy, reusable, and not worried if the dinosaur gets his paws on them. I went on a hunt in the back yard for some pine cones and tied them together. I broke out the Balsam and Ceder Yankee Candle. MY FAVORITE.
I used real pine that I cut from a tree in my back yard. An old bell from an ornament that fell off 2 years ago. I think it turned out charming! And the best part. It was ALL FREE.
