I have a smaller tree in my dining room that I put my collection of silver christmas crosses on. This collection is precious to me and I haven't put it out in a few years but this year I really wanted too. So I picked up a 5ft skinny tree from the Christmas Tree Shop for $10. I started placing my crosses on it and it looked so bland. My goal this year is not to buy anything to decorate with (the tree was a birthday present to me so it doesn't count...lol)
I love making ruffles with fabric on my sewing machine, its fast and easy. I cut the felt into strips and ran them through and I am thrilled with the results. Just what my little tree needed.
