Flowering Christmas Tree

Flowering Christmas Tree

I created what I call, a “Flowering Christmas Tree” this year. I decided to use elements of nature to decorate my tree. I wanted it to be simply charming without a lot of traditional ornaments.

I placed Roses, Hydrangeas, Magnolias, Lilies, Ivy, Berries, Pinecones and Holly all around the tree. I wanted to design a full and colorful tree that looked pretty and natural.

I used various styles of birds in the tree and nestled them into the branches as if they flew there.

I found these wonderful bird cages that hold tea light candles. They were hangable and perfect for the tree this year! The cages were a pretty good size, but not to big. For safety reasons, I used faux tea light candles with five hour timers. They go on and off the same time everyday. What is really neat about them is when the Christmas string lights are off the tree still glows.

I put a rustic star at the top. It’s propped on the bow I made from wired burlap ribbon. The burlap ribbon has lace on the edges and gives the tree a lovely softness.
