Christmas Tour of Homes

Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester

The DIY Show Off




A completely "child proof" christmas tree...or so I thought!
Yes, it is crooked!

A wreath that reminds me of angel's wings...
Instructions on how to make this "Fly Away Wreath" here.

The stunning reminder of Jesus' sacrifice in the bright red of a poinsetta.

Yarn ornaments to make with your kids.... for the how-to see this post.

The reason for it all...


"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."  Isaiah 9:6


*Tomorrow we're linking up for the Five Senses of Christmas and we're exploring the {Tastes and Smells} of Christmas!

I love the message on your tree. That is a great idea! Definitely going to have to keep that one in mind.

You have a lovely home and lovely decorations. Merry Christmas to you!

I love your tree! So full and colorful. And a crooked tree makes it more like real life, doesn't it? Your "Jesus" garland is beautiful and gives me an idea for my own tree next year.

Thanks for the tour and Merry Christmas!

I love the words on your Christmas tree, and how neat that they are made out of sheet music! Beautiful! Also, the idea of a "childproof" tree is very appealing to me as my 2 year old son is constantly touching and pulling on our ornaments!

Joan said...

I remember the days of the 'child proof' trees. Enjoyed your tour and love the yard ornaments, may have to check that out.

Blessings & Merry Christmas!

I really enjoyed the tour Joye...especially the Jesus garland. I totally know about "childproof" trees....at least 4 or 5 items are plucked off of mine and rearranged everyday. I think it's testing my OCD tendencies...probably helping me to overcome them! Praise Jesus!

Hugs, brook
