I never got them posted then so hope you enjoy seeing them now.
I loved that we had so much snow at Christmas in 2013. It made for a great backdrop outside the windows.
For years, we enjoyed our Christmas tree with multi-coloured lights...
...but last year, we decided to make a change and bought a tree with white lights.
I like how the lights now coordinate with the other white lights above the windows.
I purchased ornaments that created a glammed up woodsy look ...
...and represented our love of snow and skiing.
A gold mesh ribbon was wrapped in and around the tree.
I created a tree topper out of a styrofoam-like snowflake I bought at Bouclair Home. I poked a small string of lights through the edges and put most of them behind it.
Later on in the season last year, I got the idea to cut up a wide mesh ribbon into pieces and just scrunch them into random sections of the tree.
This was in addition to the thinner mesh ribbon that I already had wound around the tree.
I like how the extra mesh ribbon pieces filled the spaces and it was easier to work with than adding the wide mesh ribbon as a whole.
(The ends do fray but since they are hidden in the tree, it didn't matter to me)
I'm planning on decorating our tree in the same way this year.
Thanks for visiting!
