Since working on the mini putz style ranch house for Retro Renovation, I’ve been in a Christmas crafty mood. This weekend a trifecta of factors aligned that allowed me to create these lovely little trees — I had an idea, I had the materials and there was a Chicago Bears football game on. What does Chicago Bears football have to do with me feeling crafty? Being crafty helps the time go by faster and is a good distraction from the transformation that my adorable husband Jim goes through once the game starts.
My normally calm and collected husband turns into a crazed football fan/referee/coach. He watches the game standing up in constant motion. He yells and comments loudly at the TV. This transformation tends to worry Leo a bit.
While Jim is flailing wildly at the TV, I go to my happy place — which is where I created these cute little retro inspired Christmas tree ornaments…
…A whole bunch of them (football games are long) — all that’s left is add some ribbon to hang them with and they’ll be done.
