This year I plan to decorate on a smaller scale. As in, mini Christmas trees. I think they are so adorable and I love how my four and six year olds can decorate the trees all by themselves. Decorating our home for Christmas is a family event and being able to create this fun DIY Mini Christmas Tree Ornaments Tutorial is something I enjoyed creating with my two boys.
