Decorate to Celebrate #65 - Christmas Trees!!

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a fabulous week so far!! It's time for another challenge at Decorate to Celebrate and it's a fun one...Christmas Trees!! We want to see your Christmas tree decorations, projects or even pictures of your Christmas Tree!!


I created a fun and simple Christmas tree decoration using My Mind's Eye paper and Spellbinders Star dies for the base, cut in cardboard and glued together. The layers of the tree were cut with three sizes of Spellbinders Grand Circles and then cut in half, folded over and glued together.


And here's my tree!! It isn't completely decorated yet, and I still have more decorations to put up around the house. I love lights all over...like a fairy wonderland :) My angel is a little big for the top, but I don't care :)


And I wanted to show you pictures of the Rudolph my Dad makes each year out of logs and branches. Isn't it fun??!! I keep him plugged in 24-7 :)


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Christmas Tree pictures...I can't wait to see them!!


On this eve of Thanksgiving, I am so thankful for all of my blog-land friends!! You guys are so awesome and I am truly thankful for each and every one of you!! To all of you in the in USA, I wish you the happiest and most wonderful holiday tomorrow!! And for those of you braving the crowds on Black Friday...Godspeed!!

Wow - you're really in the Christmas mode! We haven't set up our tree jet and I don't have an advent wreath either, but hopefully will remedy that this weekend, when I'll return from school.
Be merry - well you couldn't possibly be otherwise in your wonderfully decorated home :)

Its starting to feel a lot like Christmas! Beautiful tree Lisa.....love your paper one too. How cool is Rudolf....... I'm just wondering if my husband could wip one up?

Gita said...

Cute little tree you made...and your big tree is so pretty. I am so loving this bokeh effect thing. This year I plan on having 2 trees. My main tree is a hodge podge of all my ornaments, mom's ornaments, etc. I found so many Victorian-ish ornaments at Hobby Lobby so bought a small 5 ft tree to display a themed tree. So excited. Will be putting that up today. :-)

Crafty Moni said...

Lisa your decorations are so cute! Your dad is so creative, I see where you get it from:)

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hugs!

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, I adore every single part of this post! :o) You know my love for Christmas, so this festive abundance has made my heart flutter. Your tree and decorations are gorgeous (there is no such thing as an angel that's too big!), your dad is crazy talented, and I love that you are as enamored with lights as I am. Last, but certainly not least, your craft tree is gorgeous! It's such a creative use of Spellbinders and I love your paper choices. The tree is so sweet and would look precious and cozy on any (or all?) tablescapes. The base makes me think of star-shaped Christmas cookies! (Nice bokeh, too!) Stunning work as always, my treasured friend. I pray your holiday season is filled with moments to treasure for a lifetime. :o)

Hugs and blessings!

Nana said...

Have a creative day.
