Every year, when Jeff and I go to pick out a Christmas tree, I’m looking for the same thing… a tree with character. A squiggly looking top branch here, a quirky crooked tree trunk there. It just makes the holidays a little more memorable (and less stuck up) with a perfectly imperfect tree. Ya know?
And to take the quirkiness one step further this year, we did a googly eye mini tree instead of the typical ornament filled festivities. It makes me smile every time I walk by it and that’s really what’s most important at this point. Don’t you think? There’s a video on my Instagram, right here, if you want to see how a googly eye mini tree dances to Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You.
I got the giant googly eyes from Amazon (right here) and just kind of rested them on sturdy branches. Super easy! Probably took about 60 seconds. And would also be pretty cute for a kids tree, etc.

And with that, I’m going to take a couple of days off to spend some time with family. But I’ll be popping in next week with more content. So, I won’t be gone long. Be sure to check back.
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas! See you back here next week.
