This is my Chalkboard Frame Tree Topper!
Plus, it’s in our Family Room so it kinda makes since, right?
Here is my sweet boy setting up the train around the base.
I love this tree so much and pretty much want to cry every time we pull out the decorations for it. So, it seemed only fitting to create something extra special for the top.
I also wanted something which could be updated and reused year after year!
A ribbon wrapped around the frame and tied off with a bow finished it off and then it was tied onto the top of the tree. I seriously love the ribbons I found this year!
I promise I don’t have a popcorn ceiling in there even though it looks that way in this picture!
Who edited these anyway? Sheesh!
Thanks so much for joining me today at the Fence,
I always tell me kids (who fight alot) as I’m taking their picture together on Christmas Eve, “Just pretend that you love each other!” ;0)
Your tree topper is a treasure, Vanessa! I love it! Thanks for sharing it with us!

The kids are A D O R A B L E!! Love their jammies. What a great idea for a tree topper. I never would have thought of that, but it really is special. Thanks for sharing, I may have to steal this idea for next year. =)
Happy Holidays! xoxo ~Liz

Aw, Vanessa … the last picture melts my heart … so, so sweet! I love your tree, and the picture frames at the top are such a wonderful, sentimental idea. You guys are so blessed! xoxo
Love the tree topper…but I especially love that photo of them in their pj’s hugging. That’s sooo cute. Beautiful family.

I adore the tree and the tree topper! The little rascals are so adorable!
Thank you for linking to the Christmas Blogger’s Block Party Christmas Tree Party (in progress). You add even more dimension to the fabulous inspiration!
SO cute! Aren’t they darling?! And your tree topper is just right. I’m assuming that you’ll use this next year with photos from 2012–unless, of course, blogging inspires you to create something new! 🙂
What a great idea and it is perfect. 🙂 Oh my gosh girl 6 trees!!? You were very busy putting up all your decor. I bet they are so beautiful and my kids love having their trees in their room too. 🙂
Wow! You are a Christmas crafting genius! So glad I found your project via Centsational Girl.
Please stop by for a visit to my blog. I am currently in the midst of a Gifts to Make series.
Be Merry and Bright!

What a fabulous idea Vanessa, I love it!! Your kids are adorable and I love their pj’s! Love the ribbon you used for the top too. Martina
What a cute idea! I love being able to write on those frames like that and know that it can be changed if needed too. Chalkboard paint is so great, isn’t it?
Love this!! Great idea…I’m thinking our kids look like the same ages, boy/girl same too 🙂 chat soon, laurel

Thanks so much for sharing with us at NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY!!!
The chalkboard paint is downright inspired. Why, you could post it on your own Friday party! I love the topper. BTW, that Ian is just plain cute to me. I still remember the video he did explaining the game for the giveaway. If I had a son, I would have wanted one like that. Maybe a grandson…
What a great idea! So easy and cute too. I love the last picture of sibling love, so sweet. You need to do a post on how to tie a bow because if that was my tree it would look like a rat’s nest of ribbons! 😉
