Family Trees

as soon as i found these little felt trees i immediately wanted to make a holiday garland out of them.  i thought it would be the perfect project for cole, but it turned out dean was eager and able to do it just as easily.  he got so excited every time he added another one shouting - "i did it! i did it!"  it was very sweet to see him so proud of himself and i honestly can't remember the last time he sat in one place for that long...

what you need: this pack of 36 count tree table scatter found in the party aisle, string,
scissors, mini hole punch, and an extra large rounded needle which makes it a little easier.

i pre-punched all the trees for them, threaded their strings, and let them go from there.

some welcome quiet time from the tickling/wrestling going on lately
that almost always results in injuries like cole's current head wound. 

we hung one strand above the moon and the other in their room.
i'm in love with this new silver sequin pillow too, it and the gray & white
stripe are from h&m and the gold faux leather one is from my etsy shop.
