We are doing Truth in the Tinsel E-book Advent Activities this year. I also bought the additional e-book for the ornaments to do this year. Next year it is my hope we will do more homemade ornaments. I was trying to choose between doing a Jesse tree or the Truth in the Tinsel for advent. Truth in the tinsel won out for me due to the quality of the printables for ease this year due to my work schedule. For our tree, I bought a white foam board, free-hand drew a christmas tree in pencil, then i cut it out with an exacto knife. I was able to make the star and the tree trunk from the foam board scraps. I painted the tree green and the star and trunk gold. In the third picture she is putting on her second ornament. I have the tree mounted with command strips that won't damage wood or walls tou our closet by the front door, so everyone will see it!
