Actually, the family wood is up.
Wood. It’s a wood Christmas tree. Sickos. I was checking out some alternative Xmas trees on Apartment Therapy. Out of the blue, our 6 year old says, “I want a tree like that”. And I thought, “really”? He was serious. So I
scavenged rescued some old wood from the desert.
These are the pieces we decided to use.
After we laid it out, we used wood screws to hold it together. Nothing fancy. I got lots of help with all the labor. Hey, he’s the one that wanted the tree.
We used white, blue, and green paint. I watered each color down about 50/50. Then we just slopped it on wherever we thought it
needed it looked good.
A couple bricks for support. A few decorations. A thumbtack in the wall to keep it from leaning. shhh! And we’re finished. I think it goes perfectly with our “less is more”, vintage style.
A bit darker. Ambiance is important. Right ladies?
Every year, Davin gets a new ornament. This is what he picked out this year. Good choice. All the ornaments on the tree this year, are ones he made, or that we bought for him in the past.
And what DIY Christmas Tree would be complete without a burlap tree skirt? Just keeping it real.
Sooo … What do you think? Would you ever consider an alternative tree? Or are you a traditional sucker for cleaning up pine needles?
