Decorating A Kid-Friendly Christmas Tree with a Bit of Childhood NostalgiaNicole Balch
Gingerbread men, sock monkeys, and little red wagons… all the Christmas childhood nostalgia one could wish for! Even if *ahem* your childhood may have been filled more with She-Ra and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, (not that I’m dating myself here), let’s just go with a tree inspired by some of the classic icons of childhood, shall we?
