I love Christmas and decorating the house and baking cookies and wrapping gifts, well you get the idea. I'm sure that many of you are right there with me. I would like to share our little tree in the sun room with you today. It's actually about 4.5 feet tall so it's not really tiny. We also have a bigger tree in the living room that I'll share later.
You can find many different "words" to hang around your house. Wish, hope, believe, joy to name a few. Some in wood and some in plastic. I wanted to do a tree with the word SING. Seems appropriate to me for the holidays as I have music on most of the time. I covered plastic letters with music using Mod Podge and I'm thrilled at the way they look.
I hung them diagonally on the tree as well as a string of silver glitter stars and a gold glitter rope.
The rope ends by the G and just swirls around behind it by a sweet little nest.
I continued the swirl effect with the glass balls on top of the tree.
I used 4 colors teal, green, purple and blue.
This picture above was taken with a flash. The pictures at the beginning were taken without flash to get that sparkly look with the lights. I've been doing a little experimenting with my camera trying to get better shots.
This above picture is also with a flash but you can see the glass ball swirly cascade on top of the tree better here.
project table in the corner of the sun room.
I set it toward the back so that I can still work at the table
and wrapped a lace tablecloth around the base.
This is a great shot of the top. I was really at a loss as to what I was going to do with this tree. I wanted to go with decorations I already had. The only new things on the tree are the SING. I strung the glass balls on a long piece of florist wire. I actually used two pieces. The first wire has 11 balls strung on it the one on the tippy top has 5 balls. I just bent the ends of the wire over and wrapped it around a tree branch at each end. Then released the tension and let the balls drape over the branches. Reminds me of a waterfall. Than I stuck 2 glittery gold branches into the top. More branches would be better but I only had two.
Simple but effective. Try it and let me know how you like it.
