Do you guys have a designated kids area that you decorate for the holidays? If not, you may want to consider it if you have the space for it!
Last year, Leana wasn’t even crawling around this time so we didn’t have to worry about her being interested in the Christmas decor but this year is a whole different story! Home girl is always on the go these days so I just knew that she’d be super into the decor. I made sure to buy shatterproof ornaments this year but I still wanted Leana to have her own set of Christmas decor that she could play with as much as she wanted, without me interfering. I originally bought her a mini tree but it was just too small so I decided on making. a wall hanging tree. It was the perfect idea! I even let her DIY her own ornaments.
I saw the wall hanging tree idea on youtube a few years ago but wanted.a quicker, simpler way to do it. Follow the steps below if you’d like to do the same for your mini!
What you’ll need:
Step 1: Tape off shape of Christmas tree. It took me a few tries to get my desired shape but this was pretty easy to do.
Step 2: Affix garland to tape.
Step 3: Replace tape with command strips & hooks. Loop garland onto hooks.
Step 4: Decorate your tree! I bought clear ornaments & filler balls so that Leana could help me with that part & she loved it! You can add lights as well! If I can find small set of twinkle lights, I’ll add them to ours.
