Hello, y’all! Today I invite you to take a tour of my Christmas tree! In my family, we have a tradition where we put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving – or 2 or 3 days later if we’ve been slacking. Usually, I’m the one who puts the tree up and decorates, but this was a year for slacking and I had to leave before any decoration festivities began. As such, you are now invited to enjoy my dad’s artistic creation! Here is my Christmas tree tour!
A Topperless Tree
Typically, we bring a little razzle dazzle to the tree with an angel or a light up ribbon on top. This year, the top of the tree is a little topless and I have no clue why that is!
Some Homemade Ornaments
My mom is a crafty queen and she made these ornaments years ago! They’re made of a sturdy foam board with Christmas themed fabric hot glued on to them. Then you just decorate them however you want!
The Store Boughts
My parents have a very large ornament collection. This year they ditched all of those easy to break baubles in favor of these felt cutouts and bells! They’re are also some pine cones, peppermint strips, and balls of twine!
Underneath the Tree
Here are all of the gifts! There’s only four of us, but we really went in this year with the shopping, because there have been a bunch of “everything is five dollars” type of stores popping up all over the city.
Do you have any tree themed traditions?
Thanks for reading!
Until next time, have an awesome rest of your day and an amazing rest of your week!
