The hubs and I put up our first Christmas tree this year!
We were a little short on ornaments, so I've been making some:
I used pages from an old book...
And cut them into strips 1 inch wide:
Then I cut them into varying lengths...
Two 8 inches
Two 7 inches
Two 6 inches
and one 5 inches:
Then layer them with the longest on the outside,
and the 5 inch one on the inside...
And staple them all together on one end like so:
The 5 inch strip is the center...
Bring the other strips in towards it,
and staple them all together
[be sure to leave about an inch at the top of the center piece]:
Punch a hole in the top piece and tie a cord through it:
Hang on your tree:
