Tu-Na Quilts: A Christmas Tree for the Kids

I didn’t want to bring up all the Christmas decorations this year when we arrived back at the northern house just two days before Christmas. But I didn’t want to be nicknamed “Tu-Na the Grinch” or “Tu-Na Scrooge” if I didn’t at least do something to decorate the house for the holiday.

So I thought I’d use some felt and make a tree to put on the wall. I cut lots of circles: large, medium, and small for the decorations, while my daughter-in-law cut the tree shape. She made it a very full tree to hold lots of felt circles.

Tu-Na Helper used Command strips to hang it on the wall.

It is a big hit with all the little kids and the big ones as well. They can decorate and redecorate the tree as much as they wish.

What I Learned Today:

  1. One is never too old to decorate a tree. Even I had fun decorating this tree.
  2. My daughter is a very good cook. She is baking homemade Biscotti right now.

Question: Did you put up a tree or not this year? You’ve seen the extent of my Christmas decorations for this year above.

Thanks for stopping by and do come again.

Karen, Tu-Na Quilts
