Christmas Tree Trunk Cookies

Christmas Tree Trunk Cookies

Since Jack and I have been together, we have always had a real Christmas tree. Wait, this isn’t true. In 2007 we had a Christmas fireplace where we decorated the grill and put all of the presents inside the fireplace (it didn’t work at the time), so there isn’t a cookie for 2007, but I was thinking of looking for a small fireplace that we can put the date on and hang with the other cookies.

We have always made it a tradition after we bring our tree home to cut a small slice off the bottom of the trunk and write the year on it.  These are our Christmas Tree Cookies that we usually hang from the tree.

This year, I made that giant wreath for our living room using a hula hoop and Dollar Store garland. Click here to see the post on how to make a giant wreath.

It was a little bland looking though, so I thought I would decorate it with our Cookies, and I love how it looks! So personalized and it is the center of our livingr0om. I think for next year, I will add some red ribbon and spruce the cookies up a little!

On a side note, our tree is up and bright as ever. I will try and get some more pictures, but for now, I love taking ornament shots in the tree, so enjoy!

What are your Christmas traditions? I love hearing stories about what other families do to keep the holiday spirit alive. 🙂
