So far all I've made was a wreath.  I have two stockings in the making and my bf wants to make a wreath of his own to go with our stockings.  We will soon finish that up hopefully.  Just have to make a run to Michael's soon.

It's so fun to see everyone's decorations and holiday craftiness!  Some people have a Santa collection to display this time of year, I have a tree collection.  Bottle brush, tinsel, feather, glass, metal, ceramic, wood, plastic, whatnot-over-foam-form, etc.  I don't have a xmas tree, though - no kids, a couple rascally cats, single-gal-on-the-go and all that. 

The green ones (plus Bigfoot for giggles) on top of the piano.

The bottle brush trees with little ball ornaments were crafted by my biggest Tree Enabler.

The white, clear, silver and gold ones on top of the tv cabinet.

The tall silver one with the white balls was crafted by the Tree Enabler, too.

The turquoise, teal and purple ones on my dresser.  The large one was covered with vintage costume jewelry last year, but I think I'll skip it this year just to cut myself some slack.

And the 2 middle-sized trees (ribbon and tinsel in pots) were also crafted by the Tree Enabler, who is also a shoe enabler, by the way.

The large gold one, with teal decorations (inspired by the scrap of fabric that I through around the base last year) that sits on a shelf in a window at the top of my basement stairwell.


The small collection of Kermit the Frog ornaments on top of a mini barrister's cabinet that houses The Kermitage Museum (my Kermit Collection).  Joined by a fancy cat who's yet to fine the perfect holiday home, but I love her and think her red outfit suits the display nicely.


Still working on a way to display all the Star Trek ornaments w/o getting a tree.  There is a long, frustrating story to go with that project, so I think I'll try to figure it out after the holiday and just be ready to go next ear.

ellibelly- I just saw the little Christmas bonbons under the tree and thought I was having deja vu.  lol.  I had just replied to your post about the bon bons.  Wink

Your tree and all the presents look so whimsical!  It might be small, but it looks like it's exploding with Christmas cheer!

Hahaha!!! Thanks!!!! Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

Those trees are great!  All of them grouped together like that make a professional looking display.

Thanks lolacat and Queen of Fools! 

I've not met another tree person before.  Wee!  I'd love to see yours if you have photos. I have all kinds of ideas for crafting some more, but never seem to get to it.  Perhaps sometime during 2008?

I really love all the color focused trees in non-traditional colors!  It really shows how creative all of you guys are.  I think having matching skirts would really help a few of those pop.

Mine (first post) is just red and silver, uber simple.  Hopefully when we get a bigger place I'll have room for another.  I'd like a 3 foot silver tree to hang black and white ornaments on! Cheesy

I made a great wreath last night (with $2 worth of garland from the dollar store) but it's too cold to go out for a picture right now.
