I’m not gonna be getting out my Halloween Tree this year. I just don’t have the time or the energy. I’m still busy cleaning up and organizing from when the floors were installed. I’m trying to get done in time to decorate for Christmas. I’m bummed… But making but the best of it. I’m not “not decorating,” I’m just using things I have on hand and new purchases.
I bought a new “little tree” this summer. It’s a twig tree, like the one I purchased for my bedroom, but a little smaller. Over the summer, (before the floors) I started to decorate it with hand-made book page ornaments and silhouettes. For Fall, I just added some acorn ornaments, colored leaves and a few new ornaments from Pottery Barn.
I love the way it turned out.
I made a silhouette of my son, puppies, and each one of my nieces and nephews. It’s an easy project. The hard part is finding a good silhouette photo of each person.
The initial ornaments are new this year from Pottery Barn.
Next year, I think I’ll have to put this tree AND the Halloween Tree out. My poor husband.
