Decking the Halls

We don't have many Christmas decorations in our halls. While the living room, the kitchen and even the bathroom gets bedazzled with something festive our hallway is a little...bah-humbug. 
Plus if you have a little person under 5 in your home, sticking that Lenox heirloom ornament on your live Christmas tree is just asking for heart"break" (pun intended). 
So what's a Mama to do? 
Say hello to the felt Christmas tree.

We keep this one in our hall, and they can decorate a tree to their hearts content. I usually pull the ornaments off after they go to bed and they are able "decorate" the tree every day.

The trees are super easy to make and cost about $10 +/- depending on what supplies you already have. You can usually find felt on sale at a craft store 4 sheets for $1,  grab some holiday stickers from the Dollar Tree, a glue gun and you are good to go. 
Here are 5 DIY tutorials for more inspiration:

"...But Drama Mama", you say, I'm soooo not the crafty type". Never fear Etsy is here! Here are a few Etsy stores that sell fully created felt tree kits. Yay! I hear you Mama, cuz you have more than enough to do this holiday season.


Happy Crafting!

Drama Mama's December Photo-A-Day

Happy December! Here is my gift to you! A December Photo-A-Day challenge that is sure to be fun! You can follow me on Instagram @itsthedramamama to see my progression or tag your photos #dramamamadecember so I can follow yours.

I created this because I want to be present with my kids this month but it gets so hard with the never ending to-do lists and the stream of events and celebrations. 
Hopefully this list will slow me down so I can capture 
all the little moments...
the good, the great and the priceless!
