It’s Day 10 and we are sharing our Christmas Tree!
There is something magical about the glow of a Christmas tree! When decorating my tree, I usually don’t stick to a theme. Our family tree is a collection of ornaments that are filled with beautiful memories. With so many unique and meaningful family ornaments, it is so much fun to decorate the tree together.
After years of making and collecting ornaments, as well as receiving them as teacher gifts, my family had more ornaments than could fit on just one tree. What to do? My solution was to sort and organize the ornaments to create a themed Christmas tree. I had a large group of teacher ornaments so I decided on a teacher-themed Christmas tree.
The first thing I did was to string the lights. To top the tree, I created a bow, using the same ribbon that I used on the larger tree. I like to choose a ribbon and keep it consistent throughout our living space. This year I used a 2.5 inch red and black buffalo check wired ribbon that I picked up at Marshalls. To create a bow, I use the Bowdabra Bow Maker and Craft Tool by Darice. I have had mine for about 15 years, and I use it all of the time.
Next, I took my collection of teacher ornaments and began to decorate. Hanging each of these ornaments brings back memories of my students throughout the years.
I am enjoying this teacher-themed Christmas tree!
