I am definately loving how it is coming along, and it could very well be complete if I had paid attention in second grade and learned to keep my hands to myself. But I keep moving, and tweaking, and picking at every. little. thing.
I made a tissue paper tree from Halsey's tutorial over at Spunky Junky, I had high hopes of doing two green ones and two red ones. But I gave up on that after just finishing a red one and half of a green one. Tissue paper and toddlers don't go well together!
(Here's one of the conversations we had while I was making a tree:
T: What's this Mom?
Me: It's tissue paper.
T: Snot....Blow....Fake Sneeze. Look Mom, I blow my nose!)
I made the "Believe" garland by painting my ornaments green and using the eraser end of a pencil for the polka dots. The letters are just stickers I had on hand. I hung up my twine and just used ornament hooks to hang them up there.
The reindeer ornaments and snowflakes came from Target. The reindeer were $2 for two, the snowflakes were $1 for four. I had all the balls on hand, except for the lime green ones, they came in a pack of four at Dollar Tree. Everything else I had on hand.
That's pretty much it... for now....
What do you think?
