Christmas Cookie Tree

Matty and I decided not to get a real Christmas tree this year since we're not going to be around much.
We were a little bit bummed so I decided to surprise Matty and make a different kind of tree!
I cooked up some cookies and covered them in colorful icing.
Then I made a tree out of paper and placed the cookies on it!

When Matty came home I whipped out some gel,
and we decorated the cookies together.
Christmas Cookie Tree!
Now we have our very own, very tasty Christmas tree!

Now that's being creative! =o) I only put up the tree for my husband 'cause he's Christian. It's nice to do things for other people. xD

Decorating cookies or the tree together is what I find to be memories to cherish!

Alana Full (With Energy) said...

I love it! How did you ever came up with the idea from this wonder-colorful-christmas-thing-tree? It's great!

colormekatie said...

@Alana- I wanted to bake cookies and thought that after cookies are decorated they sort of look like ornaments on a tree. So I thought it would be fun to make a tree for them!

Tori Bissell said...

That's so sweet Katie.

This year I was going to be in my apartment all alone until the 21st (because of exams) so I wanted to decorate but on a budget. I decorated my windows with tons of snow flakes and bought a tiny poinsettia and decorated it like a tree. It had lights and tiny ornaments I made....

Sometimes the homemade christmas decorations are way better.

Cati said...

Ohhh I SO want the icing recipe :D

I won't decorate this year because we are currently repairing some parts of the house and it's awfully dusty and messy. Next year, though, I'll be living at my new house and I'll try to do something :)

Yummy tree you've got there! I did a homemade tree as well earlier this week with photos of myself and the housemates as ornaments.

You can see a photo of it here! http://twitpic.com/3h0fw9

We all loved it so much that we thought we should invite a few critters to come love it with us. =)

colormekatie said...

jewel.lovex3 said...

Another creative idea, Katie! That's absolutely amazing! :)

LindaW said...

However did you keep Moo away from the ornaments if the tree was on the floor?

Daisy said...

Such a pretty idea!

katie-lyn said...

creative indeed!

colormekatie said...

@LindaW- We made it on the floor but then I picked it up and put it on the table. It's like the tree was a giant plate!

Hey, I don't know if you knew this but one of your pictures of Moo is up on a site that doesn't credit or link back to you. I don't know if it matters to you or not but I thought you ought to know. It can be found here- http://sites.google.com/site/streetknightz/cats/and-he-can-do-this-for-hours

P.S. that is such a cute tree, and I love the way y'all decorated the cookies- they do look just like ornaments!
