The big day is only ten short days away....I think it's high time to finish up decorating for the festivities! Today, I am sharing my very simple Christmas tree décor. A little while ago, I decided this year I wanted the décor in the house to be reminiscent of a lodge or something that you would see in a quaint little Scandinavian town. I kept that notion in mind as I trimmed the tree this year. Although I usually love over-the-top and opulent, this year, I am keeping things pared down and simple. I hope you enjoy the post.
I began with a pre-lit tree,
and draped it with sparkly ribbon with a snowflake motif.
The ornaments I chose this year are also simple; there are fabric-covered snowflakes,
little trees and stars made from cable-knit....love these! They remind me of sweaters! :)
For some sparkle and charm, I also added bells with snowflake design in red and silver,
a few simple bulbs,
and my handmade fabric ornaments. If you would like to view the tutorial to make these ornaments, you may do so on my blog The Crafting Table here.
A simple star dons the top of the tree,
I love walking into the house and being welcomed by a lighted tree, don't you? Albeit a simple one, it still makes me smile.
