It's that time. The time to show off the tree! There were many a time this year I wanted to scrap the whole thing and start over. But, I didn't and I'm happy.. I think it ended up very pretty, and is just the right amount of neutral like my style as of late and glitz and glamor which is how I like to think of the holidays. Like a big bubbly glass of champagne.. If I drank champagne that is. No thanks, I'll take a Dr. Pepper. :) Oh, no.. Go ahead, put it in the champange flute, I'm klassy.
Yes, okay. Well I played with that and threw it on my tree. I like it to be cohesive in the house. Kinda crazy like that. So here goes.. I used some of the chalkboard tags like in the table scape but with different Christmas words. Love the little touch of whimsy. Then, I used one of the thrift store books (from my Mantel) and cut out some circles and used glue and glitter to number them 1-12.
Simple, the right color and under a 1.00. Can't beat that. Then, because books have been in my decor oh so much this year and I thought it'd be fun to have it match with the book wreath that I adore so much...
Bwahaha I came up with the awesome idea to make a book page garland! Ask my husband if he thinks it was an awesome idea.
Poor guy was on crinkle task. I cut each page to about 1 inch thick and he crinkled them acordian style.
Over and over as I glued the ends together. A little bit of spray glitter and we were golden! I used the burlap fabric on it again this year because it softens up all the paper on the tree I think. Yes? Good.
Santa's key is tucked in there too for good measure until we have to put it out on Christmas eve. Need a Santa key? There's still some left!
Okay, pushing forward, then I used some 99 cent letters that I originally bought last year to use for our stockings, and I still might but my gigantic garland is in the way. Whoops, I covered them in some Martha glitter and stuck them in the tree too. Love it.
It would be super cute with some fur fabric underneath but guess what, a sheet does just fine. :)
