Oh! Christmas tree

Hello Everyone,

Well, I'm nearly done...Christmas can start now...just the meltie things to buy and going to do that tonight.
Been busy, busy, busy, making crafty things for the younger ones,and I have now set up and decorated 5 Christmas trees...and their lights all work...but I'm still at a half...middle and very top is out...so I'm going to the warehouse tonight and getting another set and sprinkle them around in the dark gaps.

Have another kind of tree to share today....


A cone...


Wrapped very badly in green ribbon...




Then wrapped in tinsel....and a silver star on top...



Then some red berries....



Then some white flowers.....white and fluffy balls...a few silver balls....done.




And here is the sad half dark tree..with a droopy branch, right in the middle for goodness sake...it does not look too bad in this picture, but at night you can see the dark bit in the middle and on top...never mind, a few more lights will fix the problem..

Right, time to get ready for work....no children this afternoon....so might get busy on a few more projects for them...and get my fake presents out to put under the tree...

Thanks for popping in....Oh! before I go..I've had some super wins lately...

coops said...

wow love your stunning cone tree chrissy.love the colours and details.
your tree looks gorgeous to me hun :D

xx coops xx

Jane said...

HAHA!! Your Xmas tree is just like ours! We have 1 very large, droopy branch that makes ours look severly deformed if you look at it from a certain angle. Any visitors to our house are 'shimmied' into the room so they don't see how weird it looks!
As for your cone tree...well if I lived a little nearer I'd order a batch of those coz they're brilliant! x

Lisa M said...

Who, who, who's amazing???? YOU ARE!!!!
WOW Chrissy....LOVE that mini tree. :D It's absolutely shabby chic and completely festive and what a wonderful decoration to add to the merriment of your living room. Your tree is stunning. I'm sure the additional lights will fix it right up. As for my reindeer in the front yard, the rear end is not lighting up. I'm thinking of just mounting his head on the front of the house. Start a new trend, holiday taxidermy!!!
Congratulations on your wins....That's AWESOME!!!
HUGS,
Lisa xx
