I'm not sure if I'll ever get tired of our white Christmas tree. This is it's fourth Christmas up after my MIL found it at a garage sale one summer and gifted it to me. I've got pink, gold, and red vintage ornaments on it this year instead of also using the aqua and silver bulbs. I'm hoping to get those on our aluminum tree if I can find a spot for it.
The star collection in the corner were all thrifted, I made the curtain from upholstery fabric found WAY on sale, and you can find a DIY for the felt tree skirt here. I made the pom-pom garland using the set of pom-pom makers from Clover (found at Michael's) and just made a ton from three skeins of yarn while watching shows on Hulu. I left the yarn that wraps around the middle long and then tied each one on a long piece of yarn. I trimmed most of the ties but left some long for effect. I also scrunched them all really close together to get a more substantial look. It was a time-consuming project but I know I'll use it every year now.
I'm having a really hard time decorating our mantle for some reason. It's the thing I was most excited about at this house because we've never had one and I have been waiting so long to do one up for Christmas! Now I just feel a little intimidated. Pressure to get it right or something. Ha! I think I just need to get started, try something out, make some adjustments and move on to enjoying the holidays instead of worrying about my decor. I have issues with not being done decorating until right before Christmas but that leads to opened boxes of bulbs and twine and tinsel all over the dining table the whole month. Family dinners? You can find us at the coffee table. Yep. It's not pretty.
What kind of tree do you have (if you have one at all)? Is it already up?
