Christmas Wrap Up- The Tree

The hunt for the perfect tree. Symmetrical, full and delightfully lush. My american friends laugh at our Australian version of the christmas tree. It remains probably my favourite (and most time consuming) christmas tradition. The divine smell of christmas fills the house. It usually takes me a day or two to complete and after months of decorating fake trees for work, I enjoy the decorating challenge a real tree presents.

Every year a few more are added and the theme differs slightly year to year. This year after trawling stores only to be disappointed with variety as well as price, I decided to have a go at making some of my own.

Ply Decorations; snowflakes from David Jones $2.99
Big Baubles from $2 Shop, Small Laser baubles from Prague.

Glass Decorations; Acorn $3.99 from The Works, Antique
Silver Bauble from The Works.

Ceramic and Lace Decorations; snowflakes from The Works,
Ceramic Bauble from Adairs, Glass Text Bauble- handmade by me,
Stamped and cutout circles- handmade by me, doily bauble-handmade by me.

Crocheted Bell Decoration- $1.00 ADRA Op-Shop, Mitcham.

The finished product.....
