Thinking Christmas

18 Sep

When I was out with my family over the summer, my mother brought some old craft magazines with her — many of them had some great ideas so I’ll do some posts on them over the next few weeks.  Personally, while I don’t like to see the Christmas decorations go up in the shops too early, I don’t think it’s ever too early to start thinking about Christmas.

I know I always find myself behind at Christmas time  — over scheduled and stressed out! So it’s kind of nice to get ahead of the game with card making, decorations and picking up the odd gift now and again.  Otherwise, it seems like my efforts are a lot less thoughtful if I’m rushed and doing everything in December.

So, with that idea in mind, I thought this little Christmas tree craft made from felt and buttons was adorable and would be a great replacement for a framed picture in an entryway for the month of December. Easy peasy to make and sure won’t you look clever and organized when you pop it up on the wall on December 1st.
