Here is a Picture.
A typical picture of my son and my 10 year old ward (whose mom is deployed) who are horsing around. Right behind my son "z" you could see half a pug. That's MA-kytah. Right next to MA-kytah is a Lightstring Tree. You know - the kind you put outside in your lawn during Christmas. Well........we don't have a yard as we live in an apartment so I am so thrilled to share with you what I did with this Lawn Lightstring Tree.
Do you wanna see?
Let's start at the bottom
Can you see what I used?
If you guessed pages from a book then you are correct
We are working our way up the tree which is pretty much how I was able to get those pages on by starting at the bottom.
Here we go.........up, up, up
To the top. Isn't this grapevine star fabulous? It was a thrift shop find at the Red Cross store in a town called Kusel, Germany. Oh how I love thrifting.
And now a full view of the Lightstring Tree
My 10 year old ward and I worked on this tree together. She called it the
5 Old Books & 200 Chapters Christmas Tree.
She is amazing because she counted every page we put on the tree and it came out to exactly 200 Chapters. Not sure how many pages. I guess at her age it's all about how many chapters she reads.
If you would like for me to show you how I put this tree together I would be happy to blog a tutorial. Just leave a comment and let me know.
In the meantime take a look at the wooden Christmas tree from a previous post.
As soon as I finish the last crochet ornament I'm going to share this tree in my next blog.
Oh - BTW
I love pugs and these little stuffed door stoppers sit nicely beneath our
5 Old Books & 200 Chapters Christmas Tree
Wouldn't you agree?
Tah-Tah For Now.
