[recycled] Christmas!

I love Christmas! And for our first Christmas as husband and wife, we went and picked out a real tree together. That’s the best way to go; I love the fresh Christmas tree smell.

Here’s my brown & teal inspired tree at night:

I decided to make a burlap tree skirt from leftover burlap from our wedding. I basically hot glued strips of burlap around a cheap Dollar Store tree skirt. It was literally $1 to make it. Then, for presents, I used leftover encyclopedia pages from our wedding as well. So indeed, it was a [recycled] Christmas!

And lastly, for a prop in our Christmas services this year at church, I sewed this old-fashioned stocking cap.

I found a tutorial online and updated it to fit our needs. Loved it!
