The year my older sister was born my mom and grandma started a special Christmas tradition. They decided they would give my sister a bell-shaped ornament every Christmas until she was ready to decorate a tree of her own. One day she would have a large collection of ornaments to fill her tree; all gifts from Mom and Grandma. My first Christmas brought me an angel-shaped ornament (for their little angel, ha!) Now I have 30+ angel ornaments, and love pulling them out and taking the trip down memory lane every year. Since Husband and I have decided not to get a Christmas tree this year, I used my angel ornaments to decorate a different kind of “tree”.
In addition to our Christmas “tree”, I put a few more decorations together…
Here is the wreath we bought from our nephew’s scout troop (it was naked when I started). I used my trusty hot glue gun to attach the bow I made and every one of those gold glitter snowflakes (and I have the burns on my fingers to prove it!)
In addition to my angel ornaments, my mom makes sure I have plenty of other angels for my collection.
Our Christmas table.
I decided to get my DIY on…Christmas flags!
And I finished wrapping all those frames!
Whew, decorating complete…now I should probably start shopping for Christmas gifts.
