Christmas tree time is one of my favorite times all year. I plan for it a year in advance and spend all my free time making ornaments. If you want the full Kindra tree-trimming tutorial with all my tricks for making the tree look its best, click here for the post from a few years ago. Here’s a short trip down memory lane for ya with a quick glance at the trees from years past, labeled with their themes.
I am in love with my tree this year- in love! Scandinavian design has always appealed to me, with its emphasis on simple, clean lines and its appreciation of nature. So, here’s the breakdown of the tree this year:
We started with two sizes of lights. Personally, I think it’s really hard to over-do on the lights. My brother said he thinks our tree could land a plane this year but I don’t care, haha! I think it’s just right. Next, we put in the snowballs I made a few years ago from twine and glue. (Here’s that post, if you’re interested). Then, it was red hearts and other red balls. Cardinals flew in after that and landed on a ton of branches and then we added pine cones. Little red flowers after that, juniper berries, then paper stars and trees and himmeli ornaments I made this year. Last was my himmeli star crown tree topper- I think it’s my favorite topper ever. And I made it, which is even better. 🙂
Ahh, I love Christmas trees. I could just sit and look for hours. For realzies.
