I have really been looking forward to sharing my finalized Christmas tree with y’all! This is the first year I decorate a tree from start to finish, other than the hot pink one my sister got me for my dorm room a million years ago that I decorated with paperclip garland. I tried to DIY as much of this as possible and I cannot wait to continue adding to it each year.
Without further ado, here is my Christmas tree 2012:
And there it is! It’s a little puny, I think I am taller than it, which is odd because I know I am not 6 feet tall. But I still love it! I added on some pine garland to fill in the bare spots and used white lights all around. And check out my ornaments! I fall back in love with them every day. I also added in some poinsettias to fill the tree in thanks to a helpful hint from my friend Trippy, who you may remember from the first care package reveal. I think they add a really nice touch.
Here it is at night. Before I added the new sequin star you see above that I scored at Big Lots for $4.20, SCORE!
A few close ups of my glitter ornaments – all the sparkle I always crave without the mess!
And the poinsettia 🙂 I am glad I chose the white flowers. I think they complement the raspberry and silver ornaments really well.
And the sequin star! I instantly fell in love with it and not just because of the price. There is a Big Lots near my house that I walk to pretty often and browse through. This star was originally $6 which I already thought was a bargain with all that sparkle power. I found out at check out that Christmas decorations were 20% off and the star came out to $4.20.
And once again, my tree up close. I love coming home every night, turning the tree on and watching my favorite winter time movies. I just love this time of the year!
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful holiday season as much as I am. Now I hope to finish my Christmas shopping this weekend and watch the present pile grow.
