Charlie Brown Christmas Tree Ornament

Forget about Gray Thursday.  Or Black Friday.

In our home, Thanksgiving commences the beginning of the Christmas TV extraordinary season.

For me, it’s not Christmas with out the classics.  The Grinch.  Rudolph.  And obviously Charlie Brown …

and that famous tree …


I weep hysterically every single time … despite the fact that I recognize what’s coming.

Consensus-wise, the Charlie Brown Christmas unique is our hands-down favorite.  So it should not shock anyone that my family checked out my Charlie Brown Christmas tree adornment creation.


There was extraordinary expectation … unreasonable desires — gracious, and disruptive conclusions — on the post photograph shoot images.

And now I owe you a how to …

1. I began with a plastic ball found at JoAnn’s.  It really opens down the center so you have two halves.  And I discovered it close to the dots and gems makes area.  Not with the occasion ornaments.

2.  The “tree” is from our evergreen outside.  I essentially cut and molded until I had a size that would fit inside the decoration ball.

3.  The red “adornment” is a small jingle chime I found in a bundle at JoAnn’s look at line.

4.  For the Christmas tree base I utilized some slight balsa wood (found at Michaels in the wood creating region) and slice it with a scissor to make a cross base …


5.  I utilized a nail to make an opening in the top bit of the balsa wood for the stem of the tree to fit into …


6.  Then I hauled out the paste gun.  The balsa pieces were stuck together.  Then the stem stuck into the opening that I made utilizing the nail.  I utilized a portion of blue downy for Linus’ cover and stuck that in place.  I even stuck the red jingle chime to the evergreen stem.  And then I stuck the tree on it’s base to the base of one portion of the ball.

7.  Salt to speak to snow was added to the next portion of the ball … and afterward I deliberately put the two parts back together.

And let the tears stream …

Charlie Brown: I surmise you were correct, Linus. I shouldn’t have picked this little tree. All that I do transforms into a calamity. I surmise I truly don’t have a clue what Christmas is all about.  [shouting in desperation]
Charlie Brown: Isn’t there any individual who recognizes what Christmas is all about?
Linus Van Pelt: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can disclose to you what Christmas is all about.  Lights, please.
Linus Van Pelt: “And there were in a similar nation shepherds living in the field, overseeing their herd around evening time. Furthermore, lo, the blessed messenger of the Lord happened upon them, and the greatness of the Lord shone indirect them: and they were sore apprehensive. What’s more, the heavenly attendant said unto them, ‘Dread not: for see, I bring unto you great greetings of extraordinary satisfaction, which will be to all individuals. For unto you is brought into the world this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. Also, this will be a sign unto you; Ye will discover the darling enveloped by swaddling garments, lying in a trough.’ And abruptly there was with the holy messenger a large number of the eminent host, commending God, and saying, ‘Brilliance to God in the most elevated, and on earth harmony, positive attitude toward men.'”
Linus Van Pelt: That’s what Christmas is about, Charlie Brown.
