As you can see, I gave up on the wall tree idea and put up our old artificial as always. However, this year we decided to not use any of the old decorations and make new ones from items we had in the house.
My son had fun wrapping wooden clothes pins in pipe cleaners to create some abstract holiday characters.
He also designed the star with popsicle sticks, old buttons and glitter pens. Simple but effective, he's quite proud of it!
I decided to try my hand at bottle cap ornaments, with tiny pictures (cut from old Christmas cards) sealed under clear resin. Then we added some strings of Mardi Gras beads from his dress-up box, for impromptu garland. It's an all new tree look and we love it!
Happy Holidays to everyone, and Happy New Year too!
