A natural cabin in the snow Christmas tree

read

Have you been taking in all those gorgeous, non decorated Christmas trees here and there lately? I’ve loved their simplicity. So after getting our tree home, I honestly did attempt to decorate it to the hilt.  But… everything just felt wrong. Spindly trees look strange with lots on them. I love this real tree’s quirkiness, and wished to highlight that instead. […]

9 – Faux to real mini Christmas tree in a strainer

read

This little faux to real mini Christmas tree in a strainer is hiding a secret from you… It’s actually the TOP of a faux tree, with real branches added! In real life, it totally looks like the real deal. I did the same method to a faux garland wreath last year here. And to the card […]

7 garland twigged out Christmas tree in a crate

read

Remember the game Ker Plunk? Where you had this long tall tube loaded with sticks stuck in every which way, taking turns removing one stick at a time until the balls dropped? My tree is that game this year. And thank goodness it’s so twigged out my cats won’t touch it! 🙂 I know I’m […]

Landing the perfect walking tree at Woodsong Christmas Trees

The backlit silver really casts a lovely glow and offers an interesting focal point to an otherwise bare and boring window. It was fun to jazz them up for the […]

read

Last week I picked up this sweet little white Christmas tree for $20 at a local thrift store. When I posted it on FJI Facebook, I asked what you’d do with it. One comment stood out. It was from a dear follower I met at Bella Rustica. This was Dana’s answer. I loved the idea! […]

Christmas tree forest in a crate – Day 11

read

I really truly had intended to get a real Christmas tree this year. But I created a Christmas tree forest in a crate instead. This idea just came to mind and I had to do it. With slightly twisted top branches, it’s just a whimsical take on… trees in a box. I placed 3 faux […]

A treeless ladder Christmas tree – Day 10

read

  At the time I played with this treeless ladder Christmas tree, I wasn’t sure on a few things. I prefer real trees, but after having gone through two real Christmas trees that died within a week each the last time I had real, I debated on dragging out the faux in storage. But I […]
