|My homemade felt on felt Christmas tree. Two of my favorite weekly visitors are testing it out for me... they approve!|
Since most days I have 2 toddlers and 2 crawlers (holla holla Heidi just started cruising Friday evening!), I was not excited about the prospect of spending most of my days saving the tree from curious hands and pine needles from infants' digestive tracts. Here is the answer to my dilemma! I made my tree about 5 feet tall, gave it a Grinch-y twist and made a few ornaments. SO EASY!
Jake's Aunt Lou recently gave me a bin stuffed full of ribbons, rick rack & lace. So I spent about a 1/2 hour cutting and hot gluing and whadda-bing-whadda-boom... A toddler proof tree just asking to be redecorated (note: felt sticks to felt!). So thanks Aunt Lou! You saved me lots of time and money and made our tree look WAY cuter than the plain ornaments I would've come up with. I plan to make a lot more ornaments in the future!
I do LOVE a real Christmas tree, but I'm gonna wait until the week of Christmas. My sanity is precarious enough as it is :)
