I remember this Christmas tree skirt when mom bought it as a kit, it took a few seasons to make, and I have it now to remember our Holidays by.

001

I also have a tiny styrofoam ornament I made with mom when i was 4 (it's pretty sad looking) from the scrap pins, sequins and beads from ornament kits.

What are your special heirlooms?

My most cherished heirloom is a construction paper Christmas ornament my son made for me when he was in kindergarten. The teacher cut out circles, and drew dots on the construction paper where the children were to put white glue. Then they sprinkled glitter all over the paper, brushed off the glitter, ran a pipe cleaner through a hole cut at the top and the ornament was finished. It's turning yellow with age, but it's always at the top of my tree. And that was 40 years ago!

What a LOVELY tree skirt!! I would treasure that!

I'll post a pic later, (it's late), but when I was 11 my Mom and I sat every night for weeks making ornaments using the long pins, styrofoam balls, ribbons and beads, pearls, all that. It was such a creative process and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I still have them on my tree, though the ribbon is in need of replacing.

When my kids were little, (we had 5), so it was crazy trying to make things. But one year we did home made clay, and they made angels. They finally crumbled from age and I had to let them go. The next year we bought styrofoam balls and made snowmen. I still have one of those left.
I wish I'd have continued the tradition, but DD was small and it was hard keeping her away from the glue, glitter and all that.

Loti, that is a beautiful tree skirt. I'm sure it will recall many memories of your family's Christmas celebrations.

(topping in the hopes that others might add to the thread)
