Christmas Decorations

My mom wanted to give me more opportunities to practice my design and decorating skills, so she put me in charge of decorations this Christmas. Because our past ten trees have all been adorned with the same lights and red, silver, and gold wire-edged bows, I quickly decided to make and buy brand new decorations.

Here is the tree after the jump:

The garland comprised of 100 handmade wire stars attached to thick silver cord.

I splurged and bought strands of blue and ice white LED lights.

Rather than use traditional ball ornaments, I hung mini and large jingle bells which made the tree more whimsical and fun.

My favorite find had to be these snowflake ornaments. Target was selling them in packs of four for $1 (what a steal!). I cut off the flimsy cords that they came with and used prettier ornament hooks instead.

Lastly, I made a simple blue fleece skirt with fuzzy white edges for the tree base and matching stockings for the fireplace.
