As promised in the previous post I said I’d explain what we’re making in this photo. Last year I found the cutest snowman button ornament and tutorial—after Christmas—luckily we now have Pinterest to organize our inspirations, so it wasn’t easily forgotten. I wanted to take a project for young and old to participate in and I knew this would easily make the journey to Florida.
Once we got back from Florida we got in Christmas mode so on our way back from the Civil War (don’t ask) we stopped at White Christmas Tree Farm. I highly recommend them. The day we went eight-graders were raising money for a trip to Washington D.C. One of them was a adorable little red-headed boy who was all about helping us. Noble 7′ $25. Can’t beat it.
I couldn’t wait to decorate it! It’s seriously one of the highlights of Christmas. Once I got all the ornaments on (every one of them I love btw) it needed more. Luckily Emily and her sister, Amanda, came over for a mini craft session and we crafted up some paper flowers.
To further dec the halls I fought the christmas lights battle outdoors. Many fond memories assisting my dad with the lights every year. I learned all I know about lights from him. I had to get a little creative around some power lines.
AND we have a wreath!
