Oh Christmas Tree! Oh Christmas Tree!

Wow, do I ever feel behind on posts! Things have been so crazy busy lately I feel like I am just now able to stop and take a breath. There have been quite a few changes around this happy home and I can't wait to get them to you! Lets start with our new Christmas Tree!!!

We decided this year we were going to get a regular size tree, sadly the one I used in college just wasn't cutting it anymore. So, we set out for Lowes and purchased a beautiful full sized blue/green tree. I love it! I also decided to work a little diy into this years tree. I have been noticing tons of  projects using book pages lately and I thought of the perfect way to incorporate it onto our tree.

Take a look:

Here is my mini tutorial on how to create the book page tree garland:

Once the chain was all put together I was so happy!!! I had almost given up at least twice. It is a very long chain! Here are a couple more picture taken by my photographer husband. :)

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!
Be Back Soon!

  1. Your tree is so sweet with the handmade garland. The simplest details make things even more special.

    Maybe you can do some serious relaxing over the holidays :)

    Thank you for joining my "Tour of Homes" party. Merry Christmas!
