The most wonderful time of the year! We love the whole month december. We eat too much, we stay indoors and we burn a lot of candles... and we craft alot! We have a Christmas tree in almost every room in the house and the girls also wanted to make a Christmas tree.. so we did!

Steps:

Creating the Christmas Tree

I drew a large Christmas tree on the brown paper (for the best results). Then let the kids paint the tree, the ornaments and the lights. When they are ready, let the painting dry.

Creating the Bunting

Fold the doilies 4 times. Cut out 2 triangles. Unfold one time and cut little triangles out of the doily. Unfold the doily and make some more snowflakes. Thread the snowflakes on the twine/rope.
