First off, we have our Christmas tree. Now, with a very curious, active toddler, I was stumped as to what to do about ornaments. Sure, they make those "unbreakable" ones, but neither my husband nor myself were sure that they would stand up to our daughter. One day, we wandered around the discount store, looking for ideas when my daughter picked up a package of golden jingle bells and gave them a shake. As I turned towards her to make sure she wasn't about to break anything, my eye caught another package of red jingle bells. And thus, our Christmas tree ornaments were found....
After bedtime and clean up, our tree looks like this:
Second, we have three ice wreaths that I had fun creating from various left-over craft supplies that we had laying (lying? I can't ever get those straight.) around. The original idea is over here and she made some gorgeous wreathes!
one color or two colors. For the korker spirals, I found this blog and this blog most helpful. Everyone had slightly different ideas about how to do them, but the idea is all the same, so I just mish-mashed it together and mine turned out great!
