This is my fancy tree, full of feathers, blog and fairytales good for any ice princess. Let me show you to just how I blended it up. I am a huge fan of pre-lit artificial tree. It shows an artificial flat tray because my décor is going to really pop up that white and you can really bend the branches and let them catch all the things that you need to put on the tree.
So look at all these glitz glamour and we got for our tree and I cannot wait to show you what I’m going to do with that. I’ve chosen basically some really pretty mono chromatic white, it’s metallic silvers and a little bit of gold for this white plot tree. We’re going to start with our trimmed skirt.
I chose a really beautiful sequined tree skirt to create a watery driffy effect for the underneath p part of the tree. Glamour from ground up. Our first layer is a beautiful floral to really fatten up or widen your tree. You can really lay your elements. You’re making it wider, fatter, more glamorous. Next we’re going to take this fabulous white grass against our white block of tree and really spread it out. Almost like a wintery head dress.
Next are the ornaments which I like to call the bubbles and the bangles of my design. You have it really, really big and what you don’t need that many and as the life’s go down at night, these are really going to catch every twinkle of light.
So my favorite part of an ice princess tree is the TRO or the crown. You can go crazy with that sticking thing in and out so I chose these gorgeous white orchids to the land itself to ice princess fantasy thing. And any of these types of floral you can get it in any type of craft stores. Up here, we can kind of go no rumor reason. This is some feathers that really, really add to the dimension. So we’re going to spread this out to make it lovely and glamorous.
And our final fattening agent that you can really amp up the volume and the width of your tree is to add some more really beautiful ribbon and you can get two to three ribbon. Double those, triple those up almost like the hair coming down from the crown of the tree.
For the layer, I really wanted to create a fantasy tree with great ribbons, beautiful feathers, black all in white except for talents to really, really amp up the volume in this room. This is my holiday tree and I’m calling it the ice princess.
