Our Homestead Christmas Tree

Come into the homestead sitting room & sit by our tree as I show you our special orniee. The cheese boxes were taken down this week & the Christmas ornies were chosen for this years tree. Our homestead Christmas tree is now decorated with those ornies. Most years I have made a new set of ornies for our tree. This year was no different. There are still more ornies in the cheese boxes but no more room on the tree.

Mini clothes pin spool candles.

Gingerbread men.

Nugget bubble gum bags stuffed. We had a lot of bubble gum to chew that year.

White sheep.

Black sheep.

Coffee stained tags I stamped JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON..

This year I made bags of candy canes. Fuzzy sticks from the craft department at Walmart bags I picked up at the farmers market this past fall.

Fuzzy sticks cut twisted & bent ready for the staining process.

Coffee stained bags & candy canes drying on the drying rack.

Blessings Til Next Time!
