MY CHRISTMAS

oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree...

i finally got in the mood to put up
my christmas tree. i guess i just felt like every year it's the same tree, same ornaments...
so this year i decided to do something a little different. i decided to try to make a more natural looking tree.
i actually used
three little wreaths on the tree-4 if you count the one under the tree. instead of the usual glass bulbs i used wooden white snow flakes, real pinecones,stems of fake holly berries and little sprigs of white branches and little glass beads. I also used fake snowy green stems...

so this is my before...


very bare and lots of gaps

and this is my tree after....


and it has a nice glow to it when i turn out the lights.







MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE....
