Every year for christmas, I sink in the work of making Christmas cards for friends and family that I get hardly anytime to craft. This is year was no exception in that matter but then again I have loads of ideas and I am going to keep my Christmas mojo going till end of January next year. Anyways, coming to today’s tutorial, its a very simple kids craft on how to make origami christmas trees. As kids, Christmas was always about decorating christmas trees and making nativity scenes.

Christmas is supposedly a very expensive season although everything you find is on sale. I generally purchase Christmas decor right after Christmas because that is when I reach home after my vacation and before that, I hardly get anything Christmassy in the market! So over the couple of years that we have made our home, I have collected loads of tree decoration items and I think my tree can’t withstand any more of the load ๐Ÿ˜› This year, since my daughter has also grown up, we thought we should move more towards the religious side of the celebration instead of keeping it all Santa & Christmas trees. We call Christmas the Advent Season, running through 4 Sundays and culminates with Christmas that falls on the 25th of December. The advent candles, 4 of them, held within an advent wreath, is lit one by one every Sunday to remember and represent hope, peace, joy and love respectively. The tradition was started long back in Germany as a countdown to Christmas but later on has added so much value and tradition that it is an inevitable part of the celebration.

Hello guys! How are you? I really miss blogging and crafting like before – the before as in simple crafts, crafts that could be added as decor element to homes. But never mind I think I am getting back on track ๐Ÿ˜€ Well most of you must know that I have a 3 year old daughter – Grace and she is going to go to school – from tomorrow!! Cant believe she has grown so much! We in India, we don’t have a separate room generally for the kidsย to play like the nursery rooms maintained in homes abroad. I have tried a lot to get her to play in a separate room so that my living room is devoid of the huge mess when I get back from office but when you are an office going mom, I guess you have to sacrifice somethings right? But anyways I thought maybe its because she doesn’t find her room pretty enough. So we went to solve the problem and here we are – with a pretty DIY rainbow nursery wall decor with old cardboards ๐Ÿ™‚
