I wanted to get really crafty with my Christmas decorating this year, so decided to make my own festive ornaments! My roomie and I decided to name our Christmas tree Reginald, Reg for short, and here is what he's wearing!
*Tree topper- a floral headpiece that I made (DIY to come shortly.) We decided it looked lovely on top of Reg. We also wrapped his top branch with sparkly gold ribbon. I personally think it looks like it could be in the window of an Anthropology display! (Maybe I'm getting a little over confident with my tree decorating?)
*Garland- I found this amazing glittery ribbon at JoAnne's craft store. It is super, super glittery, but doesn't shed glitter everywhere! Truly amazing. I got the ribbon in several colors- bright blue, gold, silver, white, and pink.
*Ornaments- I purchased a ton of plain wooden ornaments in star and circle shapes. I covered some ornaments completely in colorful sequins, and others using mod podge and patterned craft paper. I wanted an alternative look, not the traditional red and green. I love Reggie's color scheme!
*Extras- I also found some bright blue snow flakes in the $1 bin at JoAnne's craft store. And, of course, no tree is compete without lots of colorful (or white- your choice!) lights!
(Sorry for the blurry pics! Not cool.)
I am truly comforted when I walk in my apartment and see Reginald's beautiful decorations! I've had such a wonderful holiday season this year. :)
