Tis the Season

This year I got a little anxious and set up my tree before Thanksgiving. Ever since I was younger I liked having a matching tree. My mom likes the hodgepodge look, but I am all for matchy-matchy.  I have had pink trees, blue and white trees, red and green trees, and this year I decided to tone it down and go more neutral.

I got a new tree this year, a find from my grandma's basement! It is much taller than my old one, which means more room to decorate.  I bought 3 new shape ornaments, and a few more gold balls.  I also bought burlap ribbon and burlap to make my tree skirt.  I plan on making a few burlap ornaments too! Stay tuned!

To make the tree skirt, I used my old one to use as a pattern. I just cut it out along the lines. I may add a ruffle to it if I have time!


  1. Beautiful, I am a hodgepodge tree person too.

    Although next year we hope to be in our new house and I plan to do two trees one matching theme the other hodgepodge.

    Happy Holidays to you and yours.

  2. So pretty and cozy! You did a wonderful job on all of your DIY projects:)! I linked up on Kelly's Korner with a burlap Christmas, too...happy holidays!
