O Christmas Tree...

At our annual family Christmas Party I have somehow become in charge of the craft (Which I happen to like, so I don't mind). Santa pays a visit and we try to create something that we can later attach the Santa photo to. This was this year's project.

I picked up chipboard tree albums for 50 cents; there were 6 trees to a package, so this was definitely a bargain. I spraypainted one side and because I used some old spray paint I had in the house, it created an interesting effect. Personally, I like the way it came out because it looks more "authentic"...don't you agree?

I then cut out green tissue paper for the kids to decoupage onto the white side of the trees.

The kids decorated to their hearts' desires.

We also had a stack of old Christmas cards so the kids could punch ornaments. I got that idea from

Here they are hanging on the playroom sink to dry...I suppose staging them on the Christmas tree would have been better, but there you have it.

I'm linking up with Heather today for Life Made Lovely Monday.
