My Little Crafty Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree Ribbon Ornament

This year my Christmas is going to be spent in a much smaller home and I must say so much easier to decorate. That being said my Christmas tree is also small. I decided to make some cute Christmas tree ornaments made from ribbon and twigs.

I did a Youtube video so you can see how it’s done.


I love adding family memories to a Christmas Tree

I placed the small tree in an old Canada Dry wooden crate that I found at an antique shop! Added some pine cones to hide the container which is placed in. Overall it fits perfect in the corner of my living space! I added some ribbon placed in strategic spots to add some color. The wooden star at the top of the tree was made by my son when he was in 6th grade. He is now 28. (I love using items made by my kids.)

  1. We are going to downside soon too and I hope I can still take my tree with me. This such a sweet tre. The crate is adorable as a holder for it! Love the simplicity!

    1. Linda
      Yeah that crate cracks me up, its fun how we reuse stuff and create something different.

  2. What a darling tree! I especially love that it is tucked inside a wooden crate! Our little granddaughter stayed with us after Thanksgiving lunch and decorated our tree. I’m pretty sure every last ornament we have hang on about three branches. My favorite look! Every time I walk by I cherish the memory of handing her the ornaments. Merry Christmas! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

    1. Marci, glad you are like me and cherish moments our loved ones touch! This has made me think about decorating my next home with more of my memories! The last one I had put many things in storage, but I think that was more for staging, but since this is my last home, Anything goes.

  3. Your tree is charming Maria. I am all about the ornaments that were made by my children or family members or friends…it’s those traditions that are so important at Christmas.

    Enjoy your holiday in your little cottage!

    Hugs, Lynn
