I love the idea of a Christmas tree filled with decorations that have a special memory behind them. I went through a phase in grade school where I made pod ornaments by collecting seed pods from our yard and then glittering the inside and putting a hook through them. Now those are not even close to as cute as this felt garland. But when I see them I still remember the newspaper spread out on the table and the laughter and the pride I felt in placing them on the tree. You have to give props to my mother who was willing to have the ugliest tree in town by letting her grade schooler express her artistic creativity with seed pods!
