Last year I wanted a simple Woodland Christmas tree.
So I set out to create one. I acquired some small, natural-wood birdhouses for painting, some pinecones, some bird and woodland-creatures ornaments, and made some decorative hanging cards to give a bit of Christmas meaning to it all.
It's fun if you have a little helper.
Amazing how much this little man has grown since he was my "very good painter" helper last year. [swoon].
His three masterpieces, and one that gramma painted in the background.
It's simple to create your own.
~ We painted the birdhouses and embellished with tiny birds and moss inside for the nests.
~ We painted the tips of the pinecones white and added just hint of glitter for some sparkle. You can either set them on the branches or add a ribbon for hanging.
~ We scattered adorable woodland-creatures and bird ornaments about.
~ And added some glittery Christmas-message cards for depth of meaning. I just cut card stock, painted them white, glued some of my favorite verses or Christmas hymns to both sides, sealed them mod-podge and added a hint of glitter. I used a hole-punch to be able to add a ribbon for hanging.
If you're feeling crafty... creating a Woodland Tree an easy project.
Stay tuned for this year's tree-cutting adventure!
