I love the Christmas season because I get real crafty and "craft" for days in a row!
This year, we got a REAL tree for our living room and I wanted to decorate it with a "woodland" theme.
Hence, felt mushrooms
and felt owls
I would like to try to have all the ornaments be mostly handmade.. still on the docket to make are a different style of felt owls, felt raccoons and a pine cone garland.
The kiddos got the fake tree in the basement and had fun putting up their ornaments on Saturday!
I LOVE it too because it is filled with ornaments that we have collected over the years that ALL mean something to us (other than the colored balls) ! Each year, I buy the kids an ornament and put their names and the year on it and it goes on the tree- its fun to "see" what they were into year after year!
I also have all the ornaments my mom made for me when I was young- she did the same tradition! So, its really a "memory" tree for us! And I LOVE it!
I also am making all the kids close friends handmade gifts this year-
I am really excited about them!
They are turning out SO cute!
