Decorating a Christmas tree this year?  Share some photos of your creations here!

We won't be decorating until next week, but here's some photos of our tree from last year to get the thread started.  I use lots of ribbons and glittery bits like pine cones and twirly stems.

I used to have an artificial tree, but my rabbit decided the wire made a good teeth tester and ... yeah.  So a new tree for this year.  I decided on a real tree and looked all over for a small one (since my house is teensy and I wanted it out of range of rabbit teeth).  After searching and not finding what I wanted, I bought a regular sized tree, had them cut it in half, got the boughs for decoration and a small tree.  Cheesy  I was just lucky that the trees were oddly affordable!


I've decorated it in Craftster chic.  75% are ornaments I've received in swaps, either hand made or purchased for me, with the last quarter being sentimental favorites I just can't not put up!  You can also see the stocking I received last year in the Stocking swap and the garland I got the year before in the Stocking swap. Cheesy

It's not a mistake. It's...um...a design feature.

Ooh, I love Christmas tree photos!  We have an artificial tree (which in my opinion aren't nearly as pretty, but the husband hates real ones for some reason).  It's up and on, but I'm going to be doing some Doctor Who ornaments and a felt garland before posting.

The fun thing is that parts of our tree is like a scrap book.  When we take a trip, we always pick up an ornament and write the year on it.

Sooo funny. I did the same when daughter was young. They guy cutting it for me was like "you sure you just want to take half the tree?" I'm like...yup. No room for more. I did take home a few boughs for a wreath. It worked out fine. Christmas is what you make of it. Great job, and better for bunny. Very cute tree. Glad you are enjoying holidays.

Another thought for little ones...put the tree in a playpen. To keep the kids out of it. Or other puppies or animals who can't climb. I have seen some neat ones hung upside down from the ceiling, too. Those look neat! Just ideas.

Happy holidays to all...Merry Christmas!  Grin

OOOOH I love to see pictures of people's Christmas trees and decs.  We have just finished decorating out trees and putting up all the swags and other Christmassy bits.  Hubby has decided that he wants me to  'bling the hanging baskets'.  The winter panises will be getting a touch of glitz and glam tomorrow  :-)

Hee!  Yes, I got a funny look, but it turned out very well and I love it.  Cheesy  I'm glad I'm not the only one to do this, though!

I love the idea of blinging the baskets!  Cheesy  It sounds festive.
