A Family Tradition...

It is a Goetze family tradition to take keep last years Christmas tree, spray it with artificial snow, and then add some red ribbons and place it on the front porch. I had to hop on that tradition this year since I have a front porch. :) This is such an inexpensive Christmas decoration and you get to reuse your old tree. I think it makes the money you spend even more worth it when you get to use it again. Here are some before, during, and after pictures from mine this year. :)
The Before. I know our neighbors were wondering why I had a dead tree on my front porch. haha. :)







The Finished Product! :)
**A few people have asked me where I keep my tree all year. I actually keep it in the woods behind my parents house. Maybe one day I will have a good backyard to leave it in!**
