Christmas Ornament Tree

Posted by on Nov 18, 2013 in Christmas, crafts | 15 comments

My family thought Daisy and I had seen a mouse tonight.

With all of the screaming and jumping going on in Daisy’s room, everyone knew something was up.

My husband came running…

…Lila Mae jumped out of her bed and ran…

…Anna Belle thought the house might be on fire.

Daisy and I were the ones jumping and screaming.  We knew that everything was fine.  Or more like, everything was GREAT!

We had just found out that Daisy won the Pottery Barn Teen Student Stylist Contest.

She’s going to SanFrancisco!

(with her mother, of course :))

We don’t know all of the details yet, but we’re just thrilled to pieces!

Now on to the Christmas craft of the day…

…which has nothing to do with SanFrancisco.

How to Make a Christmas Tree out of ornaments!

One Old Framed Screen

One Star Ornament

Assorted Plastic Ornaments (I used 35)


Wire Cutters

Attach small pieces of wire to each ornament.

Use the wire to secure the ornament to the screen.

Start with the star and work your way down with the ornaments.

Continue to add ornaments in the shape of a tree.

Store in your garage until it is socially acceptable to display Christmas decorations on your front porch. 🙂

(Which I think is going to be some time this week for me….We already have a neighbor with their lights up and ON!)

And, if you’re curious to see Daisy’s room that won the contest you can see it HERE!

Life to the full!

  1. CONGRATULATIONS Daisy. How awesome for her, she’s off and running already. That is so incredible, how wonderful for her and you too Mom.
    Did that tornado get close to you today. We heard about it on news today.
    Our Grandsons are outside of Leitchfield (north of Bowling Green) so I’m concerned about them.

  6. It’s the husband again with my daily comment: We indeed have a lot of fun at our house. You might even say we have a ball at our house. Apparently we have a bunch of them. So many that we have to make stuff out of them. I, too am proud of Daisy. She is so creative. Obviously the apple does not fall far…from the Christmas ornament ball tree.
