    I love this. Now I might have to set up a tree in P’s room too… Hmmm…

    Looks so easy that even a non-crafty person like me could do this. Might have to give it a try. Thanks!

    That is a great idea. We usually use non-breakables like ribbon and I put people’s Christmas cards on the tree as we get them too.

    That is the sweetest little tree…I want one just like it. I’ve been thinking of how to make a Christmas tree work with our 18-month old. We didn’t have a tree last year…but we plan on having one this year.

    OOh! Cute! Ashlynn begged us, “Please can we put glass balls on the tree this year?!”. Answer, “Not until Ty is out of his Godzilla phase. Maybe next year.”

    How brilliant is that!?! I love the idea. Maybe someday I’ll break down and decorate our apartment for Christmas. Or any holiday. Now I feel like a Scrooge.

    Oh why weren’t these around when we still decorated our tree with popcorn and dried orange slices?

    Love ‘em.

    So cute, so you. Are you going to make your own version of this tree for your living room? If you do don’t forget to share the results.
