A Winter Wonderland Tree

How tall is your tree? 
It is 7 feet.

What mix of ornaments did you use for this tree? 
It’s decorated with ornaments from the Dollar Store and thrift shops. I sprayed the tree with artificial snow to give it the white look I wanted for this little “Christmas Cottage” set in our garden.

How did you decide on the decorating theme of your tree?
I love decorating for Christmas and try to come up with a different style each year, but I think this Country French theme is my favorite. Once I decide on a theme, I gather up the things I need from around the house and garden then fill in any gaps with a thrift find or two–all fun for me!

Is there something different you did for this tree that you particularly like?
I love that I was able to achieve the look I wanted on a very small budget and I think the look I was after all came together when I sprayed the tree with a can or two of artificial snow giving it a winter wonderland look.
