"Getting the Christmas Tree" Ornament

Tree Cutting, 2006
In celebration of our cutting and bringing home our own tree this year (didn't take a picture of the car this year, but here is one from 2006)...
the boys made these cute "Getting the Christmas Tree" ornaments.
 They are simple and inexpensive to make.
 All you need is a tiny tree, a toy car and some pretty twine or string.
 If you buy a car with an open window, you can put the string through the window instead of having to wrap it around the whole car. It looks more realistic and it secures the tree to the car better.
 When you have tied the tree on a couple of times, you can tie your loose ends together to make a loop to hang the ornament.
They would make fun gifts as well.

  1. Those are terrific! They'd be a great craft to do National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - if that was a slightly more kid-friendly movie :)

  4. I LOVE them! To do the same, we'd have to find a toy sled, a large Border Collie mix dog toy to hook up to it, and a lot of word bubbles with "Chewie, SLOW DOWN! No, don't eat that! Waaaaiiiiit!" and similar sentiments. I think yours are much nicer :)

  6. Those are so cute! It took me a second to realize the car was tied to the little tree.

    1. The cutting the Christmas tree probably will be, but the making of the ornament probably won't be. I keep looking for a little car that looks like our 15 passenger van. LOL
