DIY Advent Tree

I've been lightly searching for an Advent tree that was similar to the one we had growing up but, have not had much luck.  (I've been being very particular about it!)  So, I decided since I couldn't find one that I loved enough I would just make my own.  Off to Hobby Lobby I went to pick up the supplies!

  I knew from years past that Hobby Lobby has all sorts of miniature tree decorations and they did not disappoint!  It was actually kind of difficult to decide on what all I wanted.  Finally I picked up these items... 1 miniature tree, 24 ornaments, garland & a gold star.

I absolutely fell in love when I found the Biblical character ornaments & knew they had to come home with me!

After fluffing out the tree I strung the garland around the tree.  I placed all of the ornaments & star in a small Christmas tin and placed it beside the tree for easy access & to keep them all contained.  Each day we will add an ornament to the tree & on Christmas morning we'll adorn it with the star!

I really love how the tree turned out & can't wait to see it all decorated!  (I will post a picture and a link back after Christmas).  I know Jack is entirely too young to have any idea what is going on with the tree now but, I hope in years to come this is something He looks forward to & enjoys doing each day.

What Christmas DIY's have you done this year?


  1. I think that is an awesome idea to make your own. You are going to create a special memory for your little one. Christmas DIY's...well there are a ton on my Pinterest board haha, not to get started on one.

  2. what a great idea and I love how it turned out I think I need to go to hobby lobby and do this.
    Jack will have this tradition from years to come and will love it

    1. Thank you so much! With all of the Christmas items being 50% off at Hobby Lobby right now it really was pretty inexpensive too! Thanks again!!
