20 Easy Aprons & A Pretty (but SMELLY) Christmas Tree

I currently teach a 2 year old preschool class at my children's school. I decided that I would make aprons for each of the 2 & 3 year old students for Christmas.....SO EASY! Not sure where I found a tutorial or if I read this somewhere...? So I will tell you how I did it!

I purchased $1 dish towels at the Dollar Tree. They were kind of long, white with a red stripe. I began by folding the towels 1/4 of the way up, and sewing vertical pockets for untensils. I then cut "holes" for the arms. I zig zagged the arms & attached white ribbon for the ties at the neck and sides. I also purchased 4 wooden untensils for $1 per pack. I plan to include 2 untensils with each apron. I will also include a child friendly recipe on cards that I found on Microsoft online. Tied with a pretty ribbon & VIOLA...cute, homemade gifts for my class!

OK now on to the SMELLY TREE. I am afraid I am going to be taking benedryl for the next few weeks. My nose is running & I am sneezing like crazy! I have no idea what kind of tree we purchased at the tree farm today? I loved the blue color, I was cold, and the kids were making me VERY nervous with the saw. I really just wanted to get out of there and get home to decorate! I definitely do not have the fresh pine smell in my house!

I am without my camera so I can not include a picture of the stinky tree or the STINKING CUTE aprons! Maybe later ;) !
