I have been cleaning up today. I cleaned like a banshee before Christmas and then right after it needs to be done again! I can't believe how much dirt and tree needles collects under the tree skirt. We have wood floors so everything seems to sift around everywhere. Dust bunnies run from me when I sweep! Grrrrrrr!
I am really not looking forward to taking down my Christmas decorations this year. They have looked so nice. I can't believe the kids have left everything alone! I finally have a grown up Christmas house and I'm not sure I like it. It means the kids are growing up! :o(
I'll show you my Jingle Bell Garland I made for my tree this year. It was super easy. I found the idea on Pinterest, of course :o)
|I bought some gold bells at Hobby Lobby and spray painted them ivory.|
|Starting at one end of the twine, I tied a bell on with a knot. About every 5 inches I knotted another bell on until I had them all done. Super easy and cute!!|
I'm thinking I can find somewhere to use my bell garland after Christmas. It's so cute, I don't want to put it away until next year! I just might make a couple more.....maybe with bigger bells.
Everyone have a safe and memorable New Year's Eve!
