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 show you my first ever Easter tree! I finally had the space to leave my artificial Christmas tree up year round and decorate it for the different seasons/holidays! This is seriously so fun to do and keeps the house feeling cozy year round.
The first thing I did was take two rolls of burlap ribbon and draped this from top to bottom using the branches to secure every 8-10 inches. The burlap came from Hobby Lobby although you can find it many places. Deco mesh also works very well for this step.
Next, I used two strands of egg garland that I also found at Hobby Lobby and did the same with this as I did the burlap. One of the benefits of an artificial tree is being able to use the flexible branches to help secure your decorations.
Now, it’s time to fill in the rest of the tree with signs, picks, and ornaments! I had this “Easter” sitter available in my shop and decided it would look perfect on my tree! Really anything goes when it comes to decorating trees. That’s what’s so fun about it! No right or wrong way to do it!
The little glass egg ornaments are so stinkin’ cute so as soon as they came in to the shop I knew exactly what I would be using them for! Also, this egg berry pick was another piece from shop. If you don’t already, be sure to follow us over on Facebook at Lraedesign so you don’t miss out on all of these goodies during our live sales!
How cute is the Rae Dunn bunny garland?
The only items not from my store were these picks and the egg garland that I found at Hobby Lobby. The perfect Spring colors to finish off the top of my tree. So fun! If your having a hard time coming up with ideas, take a walk through your local craft store and I bet you will find some inspiration!
The tree skirt I used was from Amazon and you can find that at my affiliate link HERE!
I hope your inspired too try your own Easter tree now!
Happy holidays!!! I am so excited to share with you my Christmas tree for this year! I went away from the traditional red and green theme and decided to go with a navy theme! I absolutely love how it turned out! As soon as I got the deco mesh on, I knew it I loved it!
Typically, we buy a real tree so I am not able to put our tree up as early as I would like…but this year I decided to try something different! I happened to be looking through the Black Friday deals at Wal-mart and found this beautiful tree for ONLY $69. So, I bit the bullet and bought an artificial, flocked tree. It took my family awhile to get used to it as we have always had the real tree and the awesome Christmas smell that goes along with that but they adjusted well!
I knew I wanted to have some navy accents in my holiday decor this year so when I found this mesh at Hobby Lobby I grabbed a couple rolls. I only used one roll on my tree as I only decorated the front side but if you were to decorate the full tree you would need two.
To apply the mesh, I simply folded the mesh in half and used the branches of the tree to secure the mesh as shown. I did this about every 12 inches starting at the top.
Next, I strung some garland on the tree. This also came from Hobby Lobby. It has bells and the faux cotton pods on jute twine. After that I began filling in the tree with ornaments and picks. These all came from Wal-mart and Hobby Lobby.
I found a 4 pack of the navy, oversized, colored ball ornaments at Hobby Lobby and new they would go perfectly with the mesh I used. I simply placed them throughout the tree where there was a bare spot and they finished off the look perfectly!
Now for the tree topper! Is this not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen! I knew I had to have this as soon as I saw it at Wal-mart! It’s not your traditional tree topper and that is exactly why I love it so much!
