My Vintage Christmas Tree Box!
One Week More...
Only one more week and I can officially start decorating for Christmas! If I could leave it up all year I would. I choose the colors of my home to harmonize with the colors of the season...can't have a jolt of neon orange spoiling my plans! I don't know what I did before Pinterest...probably came up with my own original ideas! LOL! But sometimes you need a little inspiration to get the creative juices flowing.
Inspired by Pinterest...
I fell in love with this beautiful box by J. Nichelle.
I almost fell on the floor...it's Christmas on steroids!
My Christmas Tree Box.
It's ginormous...almost 3 feet tall.
I had the box and the Noel Angels at hand.
I found the little fence in my workshop.
I made lamp posts for the little lanterns and refurbished the little tree.
Found this little guy in a bag of vintage ornaments at the D.I. thrift store.
The tree ornaments are mostly vintage, filled in with a few new items.
Plastic Santa was in same bag...a lucky find!
I loved the snowy look of the original box...but the bright colors of a vintage Christmas make me the happiest!
I can't wait to put this on my kitchen table next week!
Happy Christmas Crafting!
