DIY Christmas Tree

Okay, so maybe it's a little early to start decorating for Christmas....but I really think it depends on your perspective.

Christmas is less than a month in a half away. That's almost here! I'm ready for all the holiday cheer........hold the snow storms please!

Anyway, so this last Wednesday Jake planned a fun date night for me--making chocolate dipped pretzels, decorating for Christmas, and watching a Christmas movie. It was really a sweet gesture considering he's definitely the type to only decorate for Christmas/listen to Christmas music/watch Christmas movies after Thanksgiving is over. (Personally, I think it helps get me more into the mood for Thanksgiving....or maybe it's just all these pregnancy hormones running rampant.)

Well, during our date night we made our Christmas tree. Yep, made it! It all started last year.....

Still living in an apartment, not having space, money, or storage to purchase a "real" tree, I decided to come up with my own version that would still bring some holiday cheer into our home. I scowered Pinterest for some ideas. I came across some good DIY trees, but nothing that really peaked my interest. I finally found one type that was made out of foam cones that seemed pretty doable. But knowing the price of foam cones, that still seemed on the pricey side. Luckily, I've never been one to let that stop me, so it stemmed into something much more affordable, cute, and (bonus) cheap enough that there was no guilt in throwing it away after Christmas was over.

Back to present day:
Well, since doing that last year, I've been thinking about making a cute Pinterest tutorial all year for it. So I finally I did! My first one (with Jake's help)!

Also, and as just an update. We will hopefully find out baby's gender this week! Yay! (As long as baby cooperates and proves not to be too bashful :) )
