Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop. This hop is sponsored by the very generous Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Thank you, Sarah.
The 2018 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop started two days ago but there’s still plenty of days left. See below for a complete list of all the blogs offering ideas for your holiday gift giving and decorating. Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict is hosting a holiday themed quilt-a-long and has several giveaways going during the hop. Please visit her blog every day for the free pattern/tutorials and giveaways. There are giveaways offered at many other blogs as well.
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:
- One is never too old to decorate a tree. Even I had fun decorating this tree.
- 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.
