Before I take them down, I wanted to show you what I did with some of the 90% off decorations that I picked up from Target. If you missed that post, check it out here. Obviously I'm not going to put up all of it, but I did decorate the three trees that I bought.
This pre-lit 2' tree cost me less than $3 total. That price includes the tree, the skirt, and the bulbs. I had the mesh garland on hand which luckily matched perfectly. This little guy is in our bedroom which has white and toned down pink colors. I was going for a soft romantic look in our bedroom and I think the tree matches well.
|Couldn't decide what to do with the top, but I kind of like it without a tree topper.|
|That antique dresser is from my grandma. My mom and aunts used it growing up. I stripped and restained it and another matching dresser.|
|Ornaments, ornaments everywhere!|
|This room is still a work in progress, but it's coming along.|
|Before I added lights and bulbs.|
|I like how the red lights look like berries.|
Remember this tree that I made out of a landscaping log and plain garland? I redid some of it with 80% off ribbon from Michaels. What do you think of the updated tree topper? It was plain gold, but I added two more layers of ribbon using hot glue.
The nice thing about all of my trees is that they are small enough to wrap up and leave as they are in the storage room (instead of completely taking them apart). This makes decorating for Christmas a snap when all I have to do is uncover the trees. Plus, I have to have small skinny trees because my cat will climb and ruin the bigger ones. Learned that the hard way!
Oh and how cute is this little tree hat that I also got for 90% off? I think my dog disagrees.
