A work in progress. It takes 3 - 5 days to put my tree up. This is my new $25 6' tree from Target. I start by spraying with 2 cans of aerosol snow (bought last year for half off), and this year I knocked most of it off after wrapping the branches with the lights.
Not a can was left in my corner of the Catskills. So, I sprayed the tips with white spray paint and dusted them with glitter.
It didn't get the effect I crave, like this to-die-for, desparate to emulate picture from Rose Petals and Blooms last year.
As I started on the tree, I wondered which side of my Rachel Ashwell Simply Shabby Chic tree skirt I bought at Target for half off ( I almost ALWAYS buy my holiday things AFTER the holidays to save money ) a few years ago would look better.
The satin side?
Or, the quilted side?
I went with the quilted side because I love its soft effect. I tucked the printed edge under because I've never liked it.
The moon is rising, the sun is setting, time to go down the hill and across the creek to a woodstove side dinner with my husband and fur kids!
