I didn’t get to my kids’ Christmas tree project until
Christmas Eve & Christmas morning.
–I had a lot going on.
Trying to come up with a fresh and fun idea for each year’s tree is a challenge–but the kiddos like it!
This year I was thinking “jack in the box,” but the tree will come out of the box instead of a clown! Okay~~so the ornaments should be candy and toy-based then–right?!?
Problem was, that I had an exceptionally busy month (or two) leading up to Christmas.
I didn’t get to build the “box” until 8:30 Christmas Eve. Yikes-ies.
While the box was setting up (paint), I went back to getting the names on the stockings — finished at 10:30.
The tree didn’t get put up and decorated until Christmas morning.
Nothing like working under pressure!
I was going to steal some matchbox cars from a couple of the boys, and spray paint them all one color – but that didn’t happen, so I focused on more CANDY! Wish I had found more of those big lolly pops!
Any way, I built the “box” from a crAzy variety of scrap wood laying around Page 10, and used a pair of super old door hinges at the lid.
The box didn’t need to be “fabulous,” just something for the moment. I can take the whole thing apart, or rebuild it better for some other use later ~ no worries! My kinda hurried-harried project! ; D
