Santa Approved Christmas Tree
The last thing you want is the man in red himself rocking up to your Christmas tree to be greeted with substandard tree decorations that look like they’ve been gathering dust deep in a box for the past ‘who knows how many’ years! He would scoff into his milk!
…and that’s just gonna get messy!
But… let me just get real with you one second… I LOVE crafts & I LOVE Santa… but I don’t have the patience to spend hours & hours on it… (crafts that is… I would give Santa all the time he needs!) especially at Christmas time… I want to see great results as quickly as possible!
…But I just can’t settle for less than DIY tree decorations that look totally beautiful & festive!
