Holiday Decor: Ribbon Christmas Tree Craft Project
I love decorating my house for the fall. I always start at the beginning of September and I get so much enjoyment out of placing the fall garland and pumpkins throughout my home. Having family and friends over on Thanksgiving, surrounded by good food and the fall decorations is always a highlight of my year.
However, the day after Thanksgiving, I waste no time in putting away the pumpkins and replacing them with holly, snowflakes, wreaths, pinecones, Santa Clauses, and stockings. By the time I crawl into bed the night after Thanksgiving, my house exudes with the sights, smells, and sounds of the season's holiday cheer.
After all of the decorations were put in their places this year, I looked around and had the sudden urge to add a touch of craft to my display. I made one stop at a local craft store and picked up all the necessary essentials needed to make Ribbon Christmas Trees.
This project is incredibly easy and the best part is that it is kid-friendly. Plus, after you're done working on the project, you will have cute Christmas trees throughout your home that you can enjoy for years to come.
