Christmas Tree of Literature

I think I am obsessed with making mini Christmas trees. And do you know how HARD it is for me to put these away every year! However, I know that if I left them out all year, not only would my friends and family think I was weird, but I am sure the trees would lose their appeal after a few months. Then Christmas wouldn’t hold the excitement of getting out the trees. My latest tree pays tribute to my love of books. These are actually quite easy to make since you don’t actually make the books, you just add your favorite…

Ohio State Buckeyes Christmas Tree

As I am writing this, Christmas is only 44 days away. I get really giddy over the whole month of December. Cold crisp air, holiday decorations, Christmas music, winter smells, crock pots full of soup, and dark evenings just make me so happy. You know how some people love summer and hate winter. I am a member of the (supposedly) 5% of people in America who despise summer and crave wintertime. I already have most of my shopping done, Christmas countdown blocks are out, several of the nutcrackers are already out, and I am eagerly waiting snow. With all of my might,…

Update: To see how I created all the ornaments, check out DIY Fandom Christmas Ornaments.

Minecraft Christmas Tree

I love our Doctor Who Christmas tree. One of the things that I love most about it is the fact that the 3 of us made it together. My son came up with half the ideas for the ornaments, helped with some of the little crafts, and my husband helped with the bigger aspects that required cutting and drilling. (By the way, we also have a geeky tree that is dedicated to Star Trek, Star Wars, Sherlock, Once Upon a Time, Middle Earth, and Harry Potter, and I’ll be sharing those ornaments in a couple of days.) While we were…

Doctor Who Christmas Tree

Yes, I know, it is not even Thanksgiving yet, but in my house Christmas begins in October. A few months ago, my son saw the Doctor Who TARDIS lights in a store and asked if we could get them. I immediately decided that we were going to make an entire Doctor Who Christmas tree and this DIY beauty is sitting right next to me on the table by the couch, little TARDIS lights all aglow! This little tree is almost entirely DIY and I am going to show you how I made the ornaments! First, the things that were purchased: tiny plastic…
