DIY Dollar Tree Color Changing Cone Tree.

I might have a left a couple of trees out of the Christmas Tree Tour. But only because they’re not all decked out with glitz and glitter. And ribbons and bows.

I also left out the cute little cone trees.

Gold beads, also from Dollar Tree.

A little hot glue and a couple of burnt fingertips later, and voila!

Hint: I quickly learned to overlap the beads as much as possible – placing the next row of beads in the gaps between the previous row.

Now, to show what they look like lit up.

Sophie had to get in on the action, of course.

2015 Christmas Tree Tour

Last year, I shared something disturbing with you. Very disturbing. 

I have an obsession with Christmas trees. 

See the evidence here

Obsession might be a little modest, really. . . I mean, nearly every single room has a tree of some sort in it. That just ain’t normal. 

But I digress. 

Since my secret is out in the open, why not make it a yearly thing. I share my trees with you, and you marvel at my descent in to madness. So, let’s get started. . .  From small to large. And everything in between. 

The Tiny Tree.

The Retro Tree (and my favorite, but probably because it’s in my bedroom).

And the Big Daddy: 8 feet of Christmas cheer, keepsake ornaments, and deco mesh. Lots of deco mesh. IMG_6109
