Our Christmas Tree

We don’t have a lot of space in our little apartment, nor do we have the freedom to put holes in the walls… so after some time pouring over pinterest posts, Richard and I settled on trying to make a snowflake tree with the kids. It seemed like a fun way to get everyone involved and have everyone share in it’s creation. So we sat down on a Saturday afternoon altogether and made snowflakes. We took our favourites and put them up on the wall with a little cornstarch and water (a friend of mine Lauren did this in her nursery with fabric and it worked out great – the best part – it comes right off no problem, after all it’s just corn starch) and arranged them in the shape of a tree. We are pretty happy with the outcome. Though it doesn’t stand out quite as much as we’d like… so we’re going to get some gold glitter glue and trace the outlines of the framing snowflakes to give it a little more pizzazz. It’ll make the room look more festive as a whole as well.

Unfortunately for y’all I was so busy making snowflakes with everyone that I forgot to take pictures of the process. I figure that’s a good thing though, right?
