Christmas Projects.


I believe I mentioned earlier that I had some projects that I wanted to do to add to our modest Christmas decorations.  At the time, I had some ideas in mind, but I was not sure exactly what would become of them.  The ideas are not originally mine but with each of the projects something is unique.  If you want to see how to make the originals, a simple google search should get you what you are looking for. 

I first made a Christmas wreath out of out of a coat hanger and round plastic ornaments. Simple. Cute. Colorful. Festive. 


What’s unique here is that I covered the coat hanger hook with thread like I used to cover entire coat hangers for my grandma.  I think I got paid 50 cents for each of those babies!  Who knew that having coat-hanger-covering talents would come in handy later on in my life?! 

Today I made a Christmas tree out of lights.  The original picture that I saw online used a tomato cage.  We don’t have any of those, so I had to figure out  how to make the base on my own.  I went outside to see what I could find and came back in with some rods, sticks, and sunflower stalks. 

I ended up using an old wooden broom handle and two of the sunflower stalks to make a tee-pee.

Then I took a little metal weaved trash can that we had, flipped it upside down, and tied the sticks to it for support.  Afterwards, I simple wrapped a string of lights around it and ta-da {again!} we have a Christmas tree! {And a little boy fascinated by the lights!}
