I have a good old fashioned DIY tutorial for you tonight accompanied by a little treat at the end!
To conclude my busy Thanksgiving weekend, Simon and I decorated our tree. This was not just any ordinary tree. This happened to be a steal of a deal from a local thrift store. Monday's are half off, so I ended up paying twenty bucks for it last month!
When it comes to making decisions, you all know how I am. Funny enough, I decided on the colors for our tree this year rather quick. Okay, I changed it a few times before settling, but I settled hard and fast when I did. I decided to do multi-colored lights and all white ornaments.
I designed a few of my own ornaments with inspiration from this pinterest project in which you draw a design, trace over it with a glue gun then spray it one color.
So I did just that.
1. Draw onto clear ornaments
2. Hot glue over the drawings.
3. Spray paint over the bulb.
This is how they look on the tree
I wanted a white tree topper but couldn't find one that I liked. Instead I bought a large decorative ornament from Target for 5 bucks and...you guessed it! Sprayed it white.
And now, our tree!
And now for an extra special treat...my first video! It's a time-lapse of us trimming the tree. I hope you enjoy!
