Animal Christmas Ornaments
It is not a secret around here. Our family loves funny animals. We always have. I used to read Frog & Toad Are Friends to my kids and we’d laugh until tears streamed down our face and we couldn’t catch our breath.
We crack up at animal movies like Babe.
We send texts of funny animals pictures. ALL.DAY.LONG.
It never gets old. We are a weird family.
So during our shopping trip to Michaels last week in search of a dream theme for tree, we happened upon the perfect theme for us.
We had been seeing so many precious little woodland animals at some of our favorite stores.
I don’t know why this theme hadn’t dawned on us before, but while we were at Michaels we saw some adorable bottlebrush and pinecone animals. Funny little critters, but not tacky at all. Precious — sweet sweet little animals.
The little guys stole our hearts and brought smiles to our faces.
We decided to create a sweet little home for these woodland animals, all nestled in our Christmas tree among golden pinecones, glittery garland and rustic burlap ribbon.
We actually had a handmade ornament planned to create and show you all this last weekend, but there was a wee little setback when my daughter’s 10-year-old-but-usually-so-reliable Honda broke down for the first time ever on the side of the road in Seattle on Thursday.
In the stress of the situation, Courtney accidentally left our crafts in the trunk when the car had to be towed to the repair place (where we later found out her transmission died. Sadness.). It was a bad awful week and we have no crafts to show you … yet!
But, never fear, we WILL reveal our Woodland Tree on Wednesday and hopefully this next weekend we’ll have some fun handmade ornaments to talk about too!
Stay tuned later today for a special “3 Looks” inspiration board post and an awesome coupon code for Red Letter Words!!!
Happy Monday before Thanksgiving, everyone!
Are you the one making the turkey this year?
The Dream Christmas Tree Challenge gift card for ornaments and the tree was provided by Michaels.You’ll be able to see the other participants’ trees this week too, I’ll share the link in our reveal post!
