I get really sick of the traditional christmas decorations...so I decided to make a tree of my own that incorporated one of my favorite things in the world...vintage buttons...



And what tree is complete without a chicken topper??



I'm a weirdo..i know...

That's awesome and so unique!

I have it in my head that I'd like to make some kind of horror tree one year, but haven't got round to it yet...maybe next year!

I really like it, especially the chicken. My mom bought me a pink tree which is ornamentless because I think my dog would eat them and I don't need him pooping little glow in the dark cherubs. I'm going to have to search for a chicken topper though. I think it's thrift store time!

That reminds me of the most recent post at Thompson Family-Life. She made felt trees for the holidays using the inspiration from Emily at Inside a Black Apple. Did you also get your inspiration from her? Just curious  Wink

Actually Emily's trees were my inspiration.  I had a flash thought of it last week and remembered how much I loved her little pink trees when i first saw them.

Oh and thanks so much everyone for the awesome feedback!

I actually like red and green , but I love your vintage buttons, and the little chicken is adorable... and perfect for his perch.
