the xeroxed tree, decorated

December 9th, 2011

decorated paper tree

Here is the xeroxed tree all decorated! The kids had a blast making ornaments for it.  They did have a hard time coming up with christmasy things, hence the orange octopus. And what is that giant purple thing, you ask? A whale shark, silly. Don’t you have one on your tree?

My sister said I should get lights for it and I do want to. These look like they would be perfect, but they are on back order. poo.

There was an overwhelming response to showing you the kids’ room now rather than later–you guys have no patience :) So I’ll have a few post for you next week (there are a lot of pictures for a such a small room). Here is a little sneak peek.

Have a good weekend!

  1. I think that the xeroxed tree is a brilliant idea. It turned out nicely and I like that the kids have their own tree!

    ohmygosh. Love this! I totally want to do it with my kids. You can roll it up and make new ornaments every year! ~ I’m so glad I found your blog through DesignSponge.

    I LOVE it! Super awesome! We had all kinds of animals on our tree; it was originally supposed to be just bird-themed ornaments, but with kids it became more of a zoo tree. :)

    I love the ideas that you have used in the kids’ room, and I especially love how pretty much everything in the room has a function. Decorative items in kids rooms often just get messed up because they want to play with them anyway. I’ll definitely be mentally filing away these ideas. Thank you for sharing.
