Last year, when The Little was just starting to learn to walk really well we decided to forgo our usual Christmas Tree with ornaments we've collected over the years in lieu of a natural (and mostly edible) tree. In addition to walking - he had a propensity to stick everything, EVERYTHING in his mouth. We made applesauce cinnamon ornaments, dehydrated citrus slices so that they looked like stained glass through the shimmer of the tree lights, and strung Cheerio/cranberry garland.
Here's a picture:
It truly was my favorite tree we've ever done - so much so, that we've decided to do the same thing again this year. And so, Christmas crafting is in full swing. We've been making needle felted acorn ornaments, and attempting beeswax ornaments. (How those will turn out I have no idea. I'm a little scared.)
We pick up our beeswax from this wonderful beekeeping supply store in Oregon,
Rhul Bee Supply. These pictures didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, but we're having a very overcast day here in the Pacific Northwest and my camera protesteth.
What's going on your tree this year? And if you don't do a tree, what do you do to prepare your home for the holiday season?
Yours in preparation,
