I have something different in store for you today! I love the Christmas holiday season and all the decorations, music, and the ambiance of excitement all around. To me, the Christmas season begins the day after Halloween lol! If the decision were left to me...I would have the Christmas tree up the day after Halloween hahaha! So on November 1st I brought out the Christmas tree box and my husband rolled his eyes and said "Seriously?" and I told him that I had this bright idea of making it a "Thankful tree" =) I could have my tree up and turn it into a Thanksgiving tradition.
I made leaves with my Cricut machine using the "Accent Essentials" cartridge and I put K and Company 3D sticker accents on them of things we are thankful for. I then added ribbon and hung it on the tree. Each day we add more leaves to the tree as we talk about what we are thankful for each day. The garland this was a HUGE undertaking lol!! It was simple to make but took 3 straight days from morning to night to finish it. I bought 4 yards of three different material and cut the material into 7inch by 1 inch strips. I tied them into little pinwheels with 4 strips for each one. I have a 7ft tree and it took all 12 yards of the material lol!! I loved how it turned out though and WOW I can't stop looking at our tree.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog along this hop! Please come back tomorrow
and I will have more to show and tell =)
