Back by popular demand - here is our "chairy" Christmas tree! A live 8 foot tree packed with tons of chair ornaments collected over the years. Everybody has their favorite. The tree is usually a 3 day process. Day 1 - selecting, buying, hauling and standing the tree. Day 2 - lighting. Day 3 - Unpacking the chair ornaments (my favorite part - its like visiting with old friends.)
New this year is the "wicker tree skirt." Last year, I searched and searched for a large basket to plop the tree stand into. I finally found one but the tree didn't feel sturdy so we resorted to a small tree. This year a friend sent me a link for the wicker tree skirt. Both she and I couldn't order one fast enough! Its basically a wicker band - tree and tree stand simply get placed within. Just genius!
Here is the bare tree. Pretty but in need of sparkle and stuff.
I had plenty of burlap left over from Miss B's cowgirl birthday party...so I made strips of garland and added white lights.
Then on came all my chair friends. I have hundreds of chair ornaments - here is just a close up sampling of a few. Hope you enjoy. If you're in town - stop by and choose your favorite.
I joined the Christmas Tree link party at Thrifty Decor Chick - head there to see wonderful Christmas trees.
