As part of the 13 Extra Ordinary Christmas Tree Blog Hop. I would love to share with you my version of a Christmas Tree with DIY Snowflakes.
I have the DIY Monogram Snowflakes that I made for our grandbabies, plaid ribbon, strings of pom poms, lots of glitter and vintage style ornaments.
Come a long and join me and my friends for an Extra Ordinary Christmas Tree Blog Hop.
The inspiration for my Christmas Tree with DIY Snowflakes started when I was visiting my daughter that lives in Virginia. While I was there, one day we drove to Maryland to the Offray Ribbon Outlet. Talk about ribbon heaven! I walked around and saw so many pretty ribbons. Everything from satin, organza, gingham, ribbons for baby showers, weddings, Christmas and everything in-between.
BUT, when I spotted the blue and red plaid ribbon I KNEW I needed to have it. Because, well, you know how much I like blue, right? And, the pom poms? SO cute!
Even our little tree in the vintage olive bucket got a little plaid and some pom poms. Of course, the little village are real vintage pieces. Beautiful pieces from my grandma’s collection. Lucky me!
Our Christmas Tree with DIY Snowflakes is also filled with colored ornaments hand picked by my hubby. He LOVES Shiny Brites and anything that resembles his childhood Christmas trees. It has been fun to watch him search for specific colors and styles.
As a side note: I have decorated our living room Christmas tree the colors and style I have wanted for 30+ years. This year I went a different route, so he could enjoy the process, too. BUT, I do have a Christmas tree that is MY own style that I will be sharing later this week.
I like this picture because you can see all the textures, and various ornaments, including my Christmas Tree with DIY Snowflakes.
Scattered throughout tmy Christmas tree you will also spot these “flower pod” ornaments. I will be sharing the DIY on my blog in the very near future.
I was really fun to tie in the plaid ribbon with the Christmas gifts. The tree skirt is actually a hand crocheted duvet made by my great grandmother. And, of course, we have a Nativity under our tree.
The DIY Monogram Snowflakes also make a sweet gift tag.
Thanks for joining me today. It was a pleasure having you here while I share my Christmas Tree with DIY Snowflakes.
I hope you will join my friends and the Extraordinary Christmas Tree Tour, too.
You will be inspired to create your own unique and beautiful Christmas tree. I can’t wait to hear all about it.
