Birthday Tree


Good Wednesday Morning! We are halfway to the weekend! YES

I shared this fun New tradition over at Our Prairie Home last week and just in case you missed me over there..here it is!




A Birthday Tree! A what? A Birthday Tree!







-Grab a Mini Tree {I scored this guy after Christmas at Michaels paying 6 bucks for him}
-Take your kiddo to Dollar Store and let him grab some decorating goodies!
-Create some memorable Birthday Ornaments! I did one for each year!
-And the Birthday Tree stays up for their entire Birthday Month!




For the Ornaments I used the little wood ones at Michaels! I had some numbers that I used as well! I loved personalizing them with Derek's photos! Let yourself go wild! Grab your paint, Mod Podge, ribbon, photos and have fun!



Now for the fun part! Derek absolutely loved putting the tree up, fluffing and decorating! He enjoyed looking at the different ornaments I created! He loved the photo ones and couldn't believe he was ever that little! 






Is that not the Cutest Idea ever? This Special Birthday Tree will stay in the Birthday Boy's Room all August! He is so so excited and loves plugging it in every night ! 

So what do you think? You going to score a cheap tree after Christmas so you can start the Birthday Tree Tradition in your home? I think you should!

Special thanks to my friend Co for giving me this awesome idea! She does it with her cute girls..and I just had to do it too!

  1. This is awesome Jen! What a fun project for kids. It will be so cute to look back at pictures of the trees, as it will be obvious what was popular at the time during their different ages and stages. Love it!

  2. Such a great idea!! I love the birthday ornaments! I've always wanted to do birthday stockings! I think birthday stockings and birthday trees would work really well together! :)
