Kid’s Christmas Tree

ACTUAL PINTEREST LINK

Naturally, I stumbled upon this idea on Pinterest but I made mine slightly differently. I needed something to keep my four-year old from messing with the few “untouchable” Christmas decorations in our living room and this seemed easy and cheap enough to pull off.

This original post I found uses felt, but where I was shopping, there were no felt pieces large enough to make the tree the size I wanted so I opted for that foam board or whatever it’s called. (It’s clear I’m not familiar with craft supplies) It was right next to the felt and I bought a package of assorted colors in the largest sized sheets they offered. I got a package of assorted color glitter foam board as well, and I purchased a package of Velcro dots. The rest is all preference on how fancy you want to make the ornaments, presents, lights, etc… But I had left over foam so I folded up a section to make a little pocket to hold the pieces. The glitter foam had a sticker backing so I used a couple pieces of that to seal the sides of my pocket I made.

All in all this has been a pretty nifty idea that my son likes and I’m sure once my daughter gets a little older she’ll enjoy it too. I think this cost me roughly $12.00 – $15.00 to make, but I also had enough sheets of foam board to make another simple project I found on pinterest. Check out the Snowman Fridge!

This came from Pinterest and I couldn’t really resist, since I’m kind of obsessed with Christmas decorations. Also, I had extra materials from another project I did, so why not do this!? Check out the Kid’s Christmas Tree!

I cut out the shapes with that foam board stuff and bought magnet strips to stick behind each piece and there ya have it! It was very simple, very inexpensive and only took me about 20 minutes to accomplish. 🙂
