Since the candy canes melted all over our tree decorations back in 1997, we haven’t bothered with a Christmas tree. On a whim, we decided to put up our own Charlie Brown kind of tree last Thursday.
We cleaned out a corner of the living room and went to find the perfect tree. The perfect tree is the first one I saw. Easy! After finding a tall and wide vase and round stones to stabilize the tree, we begin to rummage around the house for the tree decor. We find cardboard and foil for the star and man in the moon and use three bits of foil to create round ornaments using paper clips to hang them with care. Large gaudy earrings make great light weight sparkle. I find sewing notions in red and gold to drape on the tree. Some saved silver ribbon gift packaging works great for tinsel. The tree skirt is an unfinished quilt piece. We also found three small ribbon and a few bits of fake holly leaves and berries to add to the tree.
Otis is proud of his first Christmas with us!
I decided to make some paper candy canes for our little Charlie Brown tree.
Enjoy your day!
