I am going to use a small Christmas tree to leave up year round to decorate according to the seasons, or holiday: New Years, Valentines Day, Easter, 4th of July, kids birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc. And of course Christmas! the possibilities are endless.
You have inspired me! I heard of a woman who tried this and didn't follow through because she "couldn't afford" seasonal decorations. I just wanted to say that even paper cutouts for each season would look beautiful on such a tree, and anyone can make up some of those.
Here are some ideas I have, would you all please post more? Maybe we can all have one of these seasonal trees!
January: You can buy little plastic crystals in the shape of droplets or snowflakes. Crocheted snowflakes, string or twig snowflakes, of course paper snowflakes, little snowmen made from pom-poms, ivy and white plastic berries.
February: Hearts, of course! Crocheted, paper, wooden, glitter.
March: ??? Lions and lambs? "March comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb" How could you make little crocuses?
April: Showers? Flowers? Little Easter eggs? Bunnies.
June: ?? Birds, butterflies, sea shells
July: Little flags
September: Pumpkins. You can get little picks with nuts, colored leaves, pumpkins. Back to school, little books and pencils?
October: Halloween, little ghosts, jack-o-lanterns
November: Thanksgiving. Hmmmm. Ideas?
December: The easy one! We're used to decorating trees for this season.
How about some more ideas, folks? :D
I love the ideas! How about little pictures of kids or grandkids on their birthdays, or even me on mine! Just about anything can be used! The salt dough ornaments can be made for any occasion ,painted and hung too.(09/13/2004)
