Deck the Halls

I had a lot of fun making pop-up christmas trees this week! I tested out some prototypes at work, then finalized the plans yesterday at home. They stand up a lot better now that I've removed the trunk, and I think they look even better.

Last week the hubby and I decorated our home for the holidays, too! The cardboard Christmas tree I made a couple years ago when I had no space for even the smallest 3D tree, and I still love it. Hubby and I made our cardboard wreath this year, and I think it's great. (Truth be told, Alex did the most work on it, but I made the pattern and helped with painting!) I know a lot of people prefer colored lights, but small, white lights are just so romantic, don't you think? :-)

Oh! If anyone wants a tutorial for the wreath, please let me know! I'd be glad to put one together if someone would use it :-) Happy holidays!


  1. Love the little trees! They look great!

    Pssst. We made that cardboard tree for our Christmas Party at my house ... (and you still lived with Bertha).

  2. Pssst. You're right-ish. But I made the tree because I wanted to. (and I remember where I lived)
