Last year, we made a paper Christmas Tree. Which was a hit with all of the family. My boys actually asked to do it again this year, but I have had something else in mind. With sticks.
Although, as happens, plans change.
A friend mentioned that last year, they used a palm tree seed-fruit branch. One that perfectly looked like a Christmas Tree. And wouldn't you know it? 2 days later, a perfect one dropped onto our driveway, from above.
I also had planned to dress and decorate it with fallen gum leaves. However, on our morning decoration hunt, Little Pipkin decided he would prefer to take little bits of nature from all around our garden.
So, we went with that.
We will add to the decorations in the coming days, as the flowers wilt and the leaves dry and curl.
|We ate our homemade Gingerbread and sang |
(mostly) Christmas carols while we worked.
|Instead of threading and hanging the leaves, |
I simply poked a hole in each one with the end of a paintbrush.
