This Christmas, our theme is school, per V’s request. He started kindergarten this fall and absolutely loves it, so it made sense when he wanted to carry it to Christmas. Hobby Lobby had everything we needed to deck our tree. Wooden letters and colorful felt. I bought 8 different colored sheets of felt. Then, cut them in thirds, lengthwise and then into 1/2 inch ish strips.
With my sewing machine, I stitched on long chain, keeping the pieces close to centered.
When I ran out of pieces, the garland was roughly 30 feet long. Not bad for two bucks worth of felt!
We wrapped it around the tree, then hung our painted letters. A few silver ball ornaments, last year’s cubes, and all the silhouette ornaments I’ve made of the boys.
And here she is, a school themed Christmas tree.
V and I talked about our Christmas theme in October, so it was funny to see a similar tree in Martha Stewart Living this month.
Colorful, letters, and painted wooden cubes. Have you started holiday decorating? Do you have a theme each year? If so, what’s your theme this year?

Love it Amanda! I really like the garland you made. We usually have a new color theme every year. This where I’m thinking all white?
Thanks, lady! LOVE the all white idea. I’ve always wanted to do that, but then something colorful catches my eye. Like a raccoon, I tell ya. 🙂
This is so cute! This year I’m going with natural and white- white lights,white burlap, pinecones, cotton and whatever else I decide to make. 🙂
How funny! It’s really quite an adorable tree. the blocks are too cute.
It’s so pretty, oh so pretty…!
How darling! I love that you aren’t too precious about your decorations and take into consideration the kiddo’s input : ]
