Here Stands a Lovely Christmas Tree Flannel Board

Today is Flannel Friday's Holiday Extravaganza, hosted by our fearless leader, Mel! I won't be doing a Christmas (or winter holidays) storytime, but I spotted this rhyme in Easy-To-Make Puppets And How to Use Them by Fran Rottman (1978 edition) and I thought I would share a quick clip art flannel board:

Here Stands a Lovely Christmas Tree
Here stands a lovely
Christmas tree,

Christmas tree, Christmas tree,
Here stands a lovely Christmas tree, 
So early in the morning. 

Here is a horn for the 
Christmas tree,
Christmas tree, Christmas tree,
Here is a horn for the 
Christmas tree,
So early in the morning. 

The original words used drums and lights for additional verses. I decided not to do the drum (couldn't find a clip art piece I liked quickly enough) but added a star and gifts instead. I thought this would be cute for a home or religious setting like a Sunday school class.

I used Open Clip Art Library clip art. Since all of the images are licensed for Creative Commons sharing, here is the file I made. The first two pages are the patterns and the third page is a sample completed tree. Happy holidays!

What a wonderful song and presentation. I've been looking over the christmas tree themed flannel board sets on pinterest and yours is by far the sweetest. Thank you so much for sharing. It has saved me a bundle of time and effort. Happy Holidays!
