Merry Little Christmas Tree!

I'm having issues blogging today--it keeps getting turned down! Wish me luck this time! :o)

Okay, so here is the top of my Christmas Tree this year. It's done in origami. The ornaments were done by my friend Stephanie, but the top was done by me and Ben. He made the pinwheels and I made the ninja stars, then we glued sticks to the back of them and stuck them inside of a couple of rubber bands that were stuck to the top of the tree. Then we made the cute little origami fan flowers to go around the tree and hide the rubberbands and sticks.

I won't lie. It didn't turn out quiet like I had expected, but honestly it's still fun and cute and I have to say that I really love it! It's nice just to have something bright and colorful and creative around! Merry Christmas little tree!

This is my Christmas Tree this year--the total cost of the materials was less than five dollars! The ornaments are all from an origami-a-day calendar that my friend Stephanie did for me. Then I paid $2 for a string of white lights and $3 for some cheap snowflake garland and a set of little plastic icicles. I love it! It's colorful and cute and non-traditional! Plus it was so cheap--that's how I can continue to come up with a new theme for my tree every year!

Here is a picture of Ben and I before we went to the Nutcracker Ballet in Fort Wayne. He's wearing a Grinch tie and I'm in a nice little black and red shirt that I love!!! I wish you could see it in the picture, but you can't and the ones that I took that showed out clothing made me look terrible or made him look goofy--so I'm keeping those private so I don't have any blackmail pictures out there! :o)

Happy Holidays!!!
