Do you have a child whose birthday is after Christmas or in January? If so turn your Christmas Tree into a Birthday Tree! I promise you that they will LOVE it! My son's birthday is TODAY! We celebrated by taking down the Christmas decorations last night. Peyton was sad because he wasn't ready for the tree to come down but little did he know that it wasn't coming down quite yet. After he went to bed my hubby and I decorated the Christmas Tree and turned it into a birthday tree! When Peyton come down the stairs this morning he was so excited! I do believe we have just started a new tradition at our house!
Turn Your Christmas Tree into a Birthday Tree:
It was simple to do. We took a birthday party hat and taped streamers to the inside. Then we decorated the tree with them. We used a total of four colors and did a total of 8 strips. Next we added a variety of sizes and colors of balloons. We used everything from a 9 inch - 25 inch size. For the 9 inch size (water balloon) we just tucked them into the tree. Be careful because if you push them too hard they will POP! Then we used Christmas tree hooks to attach the larger size balloons as "ornaments". When Peyton saw the tree this morning he was really excited! It is a special gift you can give to your birthday child that doesn't cost you much. Often times children with birthdays close to Christmas get overlooked. We always go out of our way to celebrate Peyton's birthday and this is just another great way to celebrate our greatest gift!
