    My mom had a pattern for a Christmas tree like yours but it called for small holes in the backing for Christmas lights to go through.

    My Grandmother used to make these. So pretty! I lost one of the ones she made and still feel pretty terrible about it. Maybe I can make a new one? Thanks for the inspiration.

    My mom made one of those with all of her mom’s old jewelry the year after she died. I hope to inherit it one day! Yours turned out wonderfully 🙂

    This is just lovely. My favourite part is that it is using all materials that you already had. Kids really do change everything. Two years ago it was my husband and I and a large cat. Lots of free time and lots of time to be super committed to work. Today (at 41) it’s the husband, a kiddo (almost two) and my 89 year old father-in-law and we reno’d the house to double its size this year. Crazy but great. Love that you introduced us to this great blog.

    Believe it or not, my husband’s 93 year old grandmother has one of these hanging in her home that she made quite some time ago! I have always loved it!
