This is my favorite way to decorate a Christmas tree and I’ve been doing it this way for years and I’m hoping that it will inspire you. I’m going to show you just how to do this.
You see things from nature. You’re going to see this as a running theme through everything I do for the holidays and we continue that on the tree. Using these white branches, you can get this at any floral store around the holiday time. They’re really inexpensive, really easy to play within every avenue of your house.
What the white branches do is they add a little contrast to the green tree. They break up that big color plain and add another dimension. So now that I have all my branches in, I come in and take my favorite ornament which most of you probably want to think of using on you’re Christmas tree but its moss. It’s green, it makes the tree feel like its dripping. So I’ll put on this little moss blobs all over the tree and then when I do next is I have a box of birds. You can buy this at the floral store or at a craft store and what I do is I’ll just create it little moments on the tree. When you see something new every time you look at it so it’s like this bird could have been living on this tree when you bought it off.
So what I first started decorating my own tree was when I have my own apartment. I was like 18, 19 and again, I use stuff for my closet. I didn’t go and buy a bunch of stuff being from Minnesota, landed lakes, I had lots of little bobbers and fishing rows. And I actually have a hook on them so it’s easy to hang them anywhere on the tree and the bobbers looks like Christmas balls until my family came out to visit me that Christmas Sunday. They loved it and so it’s kind have been a staple of every tree ever since.
The top of the tree, this is the jewel and the crown. So just to buy a simple star at a store how obvious, how predictable, and how boring. We have glued a dowel to a starfish and this will become my tree topper. You want something to make people smile and I think this stuff very well.
Mother nature’s—she’s just the best designer there is. So whatever she creates I’ll borrow for a tree and for anything else. So this is my tree it has some really personal touches that are for my tree and my family’s life as well as a lot of notes that I think we can all way to. I hope this inspires all of you.
