~Bottle brush tree-I got a pack of 3 at Dollar Tree
~ Faux snow pebbles
~Hot glue-CLICK HERE for the link to my glue gun I use daily.
The first thing I did was unscrew the lid off of the snow globe and remove the plastic insert. The only reason I did that was so that my tree would fit in the globe. If you wanted to make a traditional snowblobe with liquid inside, you would need to use that piece. For this particular diy, I decided not to use liquid. Next, I took one of my brush trees and glued it to the center of the lid. Dollar Tree has several different colors and sizes of these brush trees. I am loving the blush pink color this year so I went with the pink trees.
Next, I took my little foam snow pebbles and poured some in the globe. I would say a 1/4 cup or so. Then I screwed the lid back on the globe.
I had this pedestal on hand so went ahead and glued my globe onto it.
I wanted to cover up the lid of the globe so I took some velvet ribbon trim and wrapped that around the lid followed by another layer or ric rac.
To finish off my snow globe I added a white pom pom to the top and a wood slice to the bottom.
So, what do you think? Pretty stinking’ cute, right?
I am excited to share our 2023 family tree with you all! Typically, I don’t share our family ornament tree on the blog as there isn’t as much detail that goes into this one. I save a majority of the room on this tree for all of our family’s ornaments from throughout the years. It has always been a tradition of mine to get the kiddos a new ornament each year. Also, if we travel somewhere special we like to bring home an ornament as a souvenir for our tree. Pretty soon, I am going to need a bigger tree just to be able to put all of the ornaments on! Let me tell ya…they are adding up! It makes me happy to see all of the ornaments up on the tree and it is so fun watching the kids hang them year after year. However, the more ornaments also means the kids are getting older and growing up too fast on me! I’m sure a lot of you can relate! With that, I just try to live in the moment and enjoy each and everyday with them!
I start this tree off just like I do all of my other trees I decorate. I used a neutral colored deco mesh for this tree. You can see exactly how I do this step RIGHT HERE!
Next, I add in my picks throughout my tree. I found these fun picks at Walmart and thought they were perfect for our family tree!
How fun are these bright colors!? I can’t wait to craft with these gorgeous pine cones!
Next up is the ornaments! Each year when picking out the kids’ ornaments I like to find something that resonates with each of them. It’s so fun to look back over the years at all of their ornaments! Such a fun tradition I hope they will carry on with their kiddos! If not, Grandma to the rescue! HaHa!
The first thing I did was pick out the surface I wanted to use as well as piece of scrapbook paper I wanted. I am using a “Woodpile” brand frame from Hobby Lobby and some scrapbook paper I had on hand. Any kind will do. I then cut the paper to fit my frame and used mod podge to adhere it to the board.
Next, I took my jute rope and started at the bottom and worked my way up making a tree shape.
I then took more rope and lined the inside of my frame. I like to do this when my scrapbook paper doesn’t quite fit perfectly and it gives it a more finished look!
Now, it’s time to embellish! I found these cute little ornament tags at Walmart and thought they would be perfect for this project!
And of course, a bell for the top of the tree!
For the stem of my tree, I used three little pieces of sticks I had. Again, anything will work. Don’t overthink it!
Cute, fun, and easy just like we like it! Will you be giving this one a try?
The time has come for another Christmas tree reveal! I love doing this so much! It’s like therapy to me! HaHa! This years tree doesn’t have a specific “color scheme” per say but all the colors come together so well and it turned out so beautiful!
I always start with a blank canvas when I am decorating a tree for the next holiday/season. I found this flocked tree at Walmart for $89 a few years back and it works perfect for my seasonal tree I keep up year round!
Next, I use deco mesh or burlap depending on my theme for my tree. This year I went with a sparkly gold and white mesh. I found the mesh as well as these gorgeous picks at Hobby Lobby. How fun are these!?
Now it’s time to get the mesh on the tree. See my quick and easy hack for this RIGHT HERE!!! Easy enough, right?
Now that that part is done, it’s time to start adding your ornaments, picks, bows, and whatever else you like to decorate your tree with! I have another quick hack for adding deco mesh bows to your tree. You can see that hack RIGHT HERE!!! Who knew deco mesh could be so fun, right? To be honest, I used to despise mesh…but now, I have to say, I am a fan!
I continued to do the mesh bows as needed to fill in wholes in my tree. I used a different color of mesh then the original color I used on the tree and I am loving the contrast!
Now, I simply continues filling in the tree with my different picks and ornaments.
The ornaments I used came from Hobby Lobby as well. How gorgeous are they?!
For the tree topper I used the cute “season’s greetings” sign from my shop! It added the perfect touch!
Isn’t it beautiful? What’s your favorite part? I can’t wait to hear your feedback!
I am so excited to finally show you all my blush Christmas tree! This tree may just be my favorite one to date! I am loving how it came together! Below are pictures for some of the items I used on my tree. Almost everything is from Hobby Lobby!
How cute is this pick! Perfect for filling holes in your tree!These ornaments are from Walmart!I simply strung this garland from top to bottom, filling in any holes in the tree. I used three strings of this garland.
This video will show you how I always start with decorating my tree as well as talking about my favorite go to artificial flocked tree! Click HERE to watch the video!
