Would you believe that I've lived on my own for 8 years now and have never had a Christmas tree? Tis the year to make that happen.
As I mentioned in this post, I've been a little hesitant to collect holiday decorations because I have a small space with very little storage. BUT, after seeing this really sweet little paper twig tree on sale for $9, I knew I'd found a solution that would work for my lifestyle.
On to the ornaments!
I heart Tim's snowman wrapped in yarn SO MUCH.
Tim got a good laugh from my cork gingerbread man :)
As we shopped for supplies I saw these little silver pinecones, so I hot glued some felt, thread, and a button to make those little ornaments. The rest of the tree is decked out with set of matte, shiny, and glitter silver balls to fill out the tree (made of plastic to avoid kitty breakage).
Other bits of cheer!
No tree is complete without a christmas tree skirt. I decided to make my own with some felt, buttons, and ball fringe. Love!
I also added some coral and a few extra pine cones to chill out down there with the tree skirt. I think the coral kind of looks like snow or snow flakes, so I figured it works haha.
We hung up some wintery art behind the tree since is just a stick after all and looked a little bare without my November frost photograph or Tim's abstract snow picture.
Last but not least, I stuck a little santa hat on my owl light switch cover - I thought he should join in on the fun!
All together now, here's our little corner of Christmas cheer!
Have you put up your tree yet?
