Our Christmas Tree

Yesterday I put up our tree!

As I have mentioned before, this is the earliest I’ve EVER put up a tree. Usually I try and keep it as close as possible to Christmas, but this year it seemed ok to do it earlier. And well, the kids wore me down really! Big Grin


I thought I’d take you through everything that’s on our tree and link you to the tutorials or where I got it!

I’m not sure that this is the final version, as I tend to add as I go, but it’s pretty close to final!

Here we go with all the ornaments!

PC016092[1] Tutorial here.

PB015654[1]Tutorial here.

PC016093[1]  I got these at Target this year.

PC016094[1]These are actually little silver bells and I got them from Crate & Barrel.

PC016095[1]Also from Crate & Barrel.

PC016099[1]I got these from Costco years ago. They go on the tree every year, regardless of the color scheme! They are always good to give the tree some extra sparkle!

PC016102[1]    From this year’s IKEA holiday collection.

PC016103[1] These were from Michaels. They had them on sale just before Thanksgiving!

PC016106[1] I folded these for our tree last year.

PC016108[1]I think these were from IKEA too, but from many years ago.

PC016110[1]  Tutorial here!

PC016112[1] Also from this year’s IKEA collection. Stars as well as hearts.

PC016113[1]These are from Target too.

PC016115[1]  I just totally love these. Unfortunately a lot of them got broken already. These were available at IKEA 3 years ago I think.

PC026137[1] From the dollar store, 3/ $1.


Our silver wire Star tree topper is from Target too! This is the first year we’ve had a different tree topper, but the one I usually use was gold, so that didn’t work!

And here is the tree again – in daylight and at night!
