Ya’ll probably know by now that I love themed Christmas Trees! This year on my visit to At Home I was inspired by some fun ornaments I found.
This year, I’m doing a snowy owl themed tree! I’ll be reusing a lot of ornaments I already have as well (thanks to my love for all things woodland/lodgey) plus my awesome new finds from At Home Christmas Decor. After I put the lights up, I flock the tree (see recipe and method here). The flocking is pretty delicate, so it’s best to wait until you’ve done most of the man-handling of the tree. If you prefer an artificial tree, At Home has some great ones – including pre-flocked ones!! Their Tree for Me lot has over 100 varieties, so flocked or not – you’re pretty much guaranteed to find one you love at a great price.
Once the lights and the flocking were done, I added my cotton ball garland (made last year) and some burlap garland. Can you have too much garland? Methinks not. Then up go the ornaments
I like to see the tree itself, so I don’t overfill with ornaments. Plus, I have cats, so I’d just be asking for trouble. As it is, they pretty much live on the tree skirt all season. It is made of fur, so I guess I can’t blame them
What’s your theme this year? Do you change it every year or keep the same one?
