This year I wanted to "make" my own tree... It didn't exactly turn out the way I planned but it was a good learning experience! I ended up taking a dead branch from the side of the road (which makes for a really cheap tree!) It had obviously been dead for quite some time as it was really brittle and keep breaking... annoying. But I made do. It wasn't the shape I was going for but it had this amazing moss growing all over it which I was quite keen on. Anyway, this is what I ended up with. Once the fairy lights were on and the presents underneath it looked festive enough :)
I also tried to make my wrapping look a but more rustic to match the tree. I used feathers, buttons, old books, raffia and mail paper. I also used Rob Ryans "And I Walked Tape" which was a hit. More photos of our Christmas day to come soon... Happy Holidays everyone!
