My kids are prolific crafters. I have no idea where they get it from. That being said, I have a LOT of kid art around my house. Sometimes I incorporate it into my art journals, other times I go old school and hang it on the fridge, and I’ve been known to make it into jewelry. Sadly, most times it ends up in a box under my daughter’s bed. They make more art than we can display and I just don’t have the heart to get rid of it.

Cinco de Mayo Tree

Living in Texas, Cinco de Mayo does not go unnoticed. My daughter is learning about it in school and piñatas are for sale on the end caps at the grocery store — it only makes sense that we would celebrate the holiday at home as well.

Feliz Navidad Tree

At first I thought I would recreate my Feliz Navidad tree, but how could I improve upon cactus, mini piñatas and souvenir skirts? I know, I needed my friend Crafty Chica and a papel picado banner.

Embossed papel picado banner.

Using Crafty Chica paper, baker’s twine, a Big Shot, hole reinforcer stickers, Avery Elle Papel Picado goodies and embossing supplies, I whipped up a banner. It was mini and just right for a Winter White Potted Pine Tree.

Last, but not least, I had to hang a real papel picado banner to reflect the mini version I made for my Cinco de Mayo tree. I can’t wait to turn this baby on come May 5th and sip a few margaritas under the glow of my fabulously decorated tree!
