A Little Tree


Christmas time is here, and I'm head-first into the Christmas decorating spirit!  I have many other projects to complete, like painting a high ceiling, cutting some pieces of wood, and the list can go on and on,  but who wants to work on that kind of projects when you can stay inside working on pretty things like these ornaments.

Well, they are everywhere around blog land, so I'm not going to give you a detailed tutorial, besides its really easy.

I got some old ornaments and foam balls to cover, but I couldn't glue the pieces of paper to the foam, they didn't stick to the foam! (that's why they got crisscrossed in the picture)




The other ones worked like a charm.



I even went to find some more to cover.



These ornaments are going to decorate our "musician's" room, and since she has always had a Christmas tree in her room, I also worked on giving her a brand new tree.

Some of the branches that were picked up from the street at the beginning of Spring time got covered all around with white yarn, then they were inserted onto floral foam that was placed inside the $1 pail from Target.  More yarn on top and the "snow branch tree" was ready!




To add to the theme, I found these ornaments at T.J Max, with pieces of music sheet inside, they are also easy to make, buy hey! Let's cheat on this one!



Little blue snowmen and ball ornaments were added, and...







Some yarn balls were also placed around to complete the snowy atmosphere!



Next it's reveal time.  I'm FI-NA-LY  DONE with her room, and this little tree is going right in there!


Until then,

That is a beautiful tree. The colors are perfect and I love the sheet music you've incorporated as well. Megan

Debbie @ MeandMyDIY said...

Oh my goodness that little tree is so darn cute. Does it take a long time to wrap the yarn around the branches? I just assumed you had painted it. I'm sure it makes for a softer look. You never cease to amaze me Cristina! Can't wait for the reveal!

I love music so this is right up my alley! Thanks for showing.

Cristina Garay said...

Thanks everyone! Debbie, Wrapping the yarn around the branches was done while watching two shows my kids love, Minute to win it & The dog whisperer, two hours total. Good thing there was no need for glue, little knots at the beginning and end kept the yarn in place.

Beautiful! I love it all!

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

So pretty - and I'm curious about your daughter's room reveal. I'm thinking the color palette of the tree is the same as the room -- and the same my very own tween has requested for her room redo!

I have observed that most of the DIYer used sheet music and popular nowadays...Even for this coming holidays the decorations are all about sheet music...

So pretty Cristina! I have found that things don't stick to foam very well too- can be a little frustrating! The color scheme is so fresh and pretty!! Thanks for sharing it at the Get Your DIY On Challenge this week!! Hope you make it back later today to share a Handmade Gift or two.
