Christmas Ornaments: Polyurethane Dipped Pinecones


I decorated the Christmas tree at my job. We had no budget for decor, so I decided to use pinecones which are FREE!!! Check out my post on Rustic & Natural Christmas Tree Decor.  Plain pinecones are, well, plain. So I needed something to jazz them up.

Rustic & Natural Christmas Tree Decor

 

I work at a church and right before Thanksgiving, the lobbies are decked out in the most beautiful Christmas decor. I work in the Communications department and each year I was unimpressed with our Christmas decor. So I became the self-appointed Chief Officer of the Communications Christmas Tree Commitee. I even dedicated a Pinterest board to the cause. I was informed that the Christmas decor was not in the budget so I was severely limited on supplies. I figured out if I went with a Rustic & Natural theme, I would have to spend little to no money. I picked pinecones and branches from the lawn at work and dug through my crafts supplies at home. Check out my results below.

Dr. Seuss Birthday Party!



My daughter just turned 3 and we decided to have a Dr. Seuss Birthday Party. She loves Dr. Seuss and so do we! It's the perfect theme and it is also gender friendly (which my husband loved)! Since her birthday is right before the holidays, we needed to celebrate with a low budget.

Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat Costume

Last month, we had a party for our daughter's 3rd birthday. I decided to make a cute costume for her to wear. This was the result!
