Earthy christmas ornament
The Christmas tree is up, and the frigid air outside is making me desire the ability to hibernate, so I believe it’s safe to say it’s December. I was so thankful for the recent 70-degree weather. Little lamb had so much fun playing outside in the leaves, but by the time we drove home on Sunday from Thanksgiving vacation the temperature had dropped about 30 degrees!

My grandma has been giving my sister and I Christmas ornaments every year since birth in hope that when we turned 18 we would have ornaments to decorate our own tree. Well, my grandparents have moved a couple of times and accumulated several storage sheds.. Long story short, all of our ornaments are lost in the abyss of junk. So, our Christmas tree is up in all its naked glory.

I don’t know how many yards of burlap I have left from our vow renewal, but it’s a ton, so I decided to make a burlap theme tree. I also had several clear ornaments left and came up with this idea to decorate them.
