We have officially entered the holiday season! Pre 2020, I was a stickler for waiting until after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas. But seeing as how 2020 has been a crap year, my family decided to start decorating early.
We love looking at the glow of the lights on the tree, and this year we got a new tree. I have wanted a 9′ tree for some time, and finally found one that I love. So, when we bought it in early November, we went ahead and put it up. It wasn’t long before we had it decorated and Christmas going up all over the house. We were almost completely decorated before Thanksgiving even came. But hey, it’s 2020, and anything goes, apparently!
Most every year, my son makes ornaments for close family. When he was younger, it was always different versions of fingerprint ornaments, but now that he’s 10, we went with something a little older and more fun for him. Back in the spring he started his own YouTube channel, BenTube, and so we decided to film his making of the ornaments this year, and post it to his site.
Check out how to make your very own gum ball machine ornament below. They turned out super cute, and would be fun for a young one in your life to make as well. Enjoy!
