I wanted to share my Christmas decorations the next few weeks and I thought why not tie it in with Amber and Neely's Fabulous Holiday Blog Challenge. Today is the Holiday Decorations category, I want to feature my Tree! It is by far my favorite Christmas decoration. The rest of my decorations will be up later!
My husband and I bought a fake Christmas tree a few years back for like $20. Well you definitely get what you pay for. I call it the Charlie Brown Christmas tree because you can see RIGHT through it! Here is our first Christmas of putting it up....
Well I want a big huge thick beautiful tree someday...but for right now I want to make this Charlie Brown Tree work...So this year, to stay in our white and silver theme, I tried to put as much stuff on our tree to cover the holes as possible! So here goes....
I wanted to start with a huge ribbon bow with tails going down the tree. I had glitter EVERY where, but it wasn't so bad. If you want to do this at home, I followed this video.
I started with this glitter mesh ribbon
And after some hand cramps and fumbling....it turned into this!
Then I wanted to add the pretty tails on and I chose the same glitter mesh ribbon and another solid glitter ribbon
Once that was done I wanted to add some glitter leaf branches to the top and throughout the Tree
Next I filled in the tree with little silver and white berry branches
Then sparkly silver curly q picks
Then I doubled up on silver and white ornaments
I added the glamorous ornaments from Hobby Lobby
I finished the tree with the gorgeous tree skirt my mom made out of white fur, silver trim, and crystals!
And it all comes together and TA DA!
I'm still a huge fan of my traditional/keepsake ornaments, so I will be sprinkling those throughout.
So this is by far my favorite Christmas decoration! Have fun decorating!
