Fresh Christmas Trees

Growing up we always had fresh Christmas trees. We would usually get them at our local gas station (they sold pre-cut Christmas trees).

My parents would bring the tree in the house and place it in the tree stand.

The tree was pre-cut, wrapped, and frozen which meant we always had to wait a little bit before we could unwrap it.

When we determined all the snow and ice had melted, we would cut the net off.

Of course the tree was always still a little bit frozen so the branches wouldn’t come down right away.

It was always fun seeing the branches slowly drop into place as it thawed, slowly revealing to us what it looked like.

Christmas Tree Farm

Eventually we changed the way we bought our Christmas trees.

We started going directly to the Christmas Tree Farm where we could pick our own Farm Fresh Christmas Trees.

Was this ever fun!

We would all dress up warmly and stroll the snowy Christmas tree farm. They had so many trees of all shapes and sizes.

Once you found the one you wanted they would stand a huge measuring stick next to it to tell you how many feet it was.

You don’t want the tree to be too tall or too short for your home. hehe

Then they would cut it down for you or you could cut it yourself.

When the tree was cut, they would place it in a steel netting funnel.

They would attach the foot of the tree and pull it through the funnel, which would wrap netting around it.

It’s so much easier to travel a Christmas tree when it’s wrapped up.

We would then proceed to their Christmas gift shop, where they had beautiful Christmas music playing.

Every time we went, they gifted all the children with an ornament they wanted. So very sweet!

We went as a family for years.

Each year our family grew and changed. It was a wonderful Christmas tradition.

A few years back, our family tradition of going directly to the Christmas tree farm to buy our fresh cut Christmas trees ended.

It was strange not going for the first couple of years, but since we all decided to get artificial Christmas trees, there was no point to go anymore.

I sure miss going and I sure miss the smell of a fresh tree.

However, it sure is fun to be able to put up our Christmas tree in November rather than waiting until 2 weeks before Christmas.

I did find White Winter Fir Scentsicles that I can put in my tree and it sure makes it smell wonderful.

To make a little keepsake of our family’s old Christmas tradition, I made a Farm Fresh Christmas Trees ornament to hang in our tree.

Instructions:

Step 1: We cut a piece of wood to make a little plaque. We also cut 4 pieces of wood to make a frame.

You’ll notice that it’s exactly the same size as the Christmas Countdown Ornament.

Step 2: I painted the little plaque in beige. Using this staining technique, I stained the 4 pieces of wood.

Step 3: I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut Farm Fresh Christmas Trees and three trees out of brown vinyl.

Step 5: I returned back to my Silhouette to cut out 3 more trees, but in green vinyl this time.

Step 6: I peeled off the green trees, and placed them over the brown trees.

I could have skipped cutting them out in brown, but I wanted the brown underneath to add a shadow effect to the trees.

I find they stand out more with a dark color bordering the edges.

Step 7: Now that the design was complete, it was time to glue the frame around the plaque using wood glue.

Step 8: To make the little plaque turn into an ornament, I added 2 closed eye screw hooks and jute twine.

I LOVE the outdoor sign! Instead of making my own plaque, I used a dollar store wood plaque that I had paid $2 for. I just had to paint it and add my vinyl design. So easy and so pretty!

I hope you love these ornaments and sign as much as I do!

Do you buy freshly cut Christmas trees or do you have an artificial tree?
If you have a fresh tree, where do you usually buy yours?
