I found this silver tinsel tree on Monday at Saver's and knew as soon as I saw it that it was coming home with me. The price tag said $4.99 which is a great price, but I only had to pay $3 for it! I knew exactly how I was going to decorate it when I got it home. Today after work, I finally got around to doing it.
The first thing I did was gather all my strands of vintage pearls. There are about 7 strands on this little tree. The bottom is just a strand of opalescent beads. I love the different colors that the pearls add.
Next, I went through my massive collection of vintage jewelry and started adding pieces to the branches as ornaments. I used only pieces that were silver, gold and white toned. The clip-on earrings were easiest to attach. I simply clipped them on and bent the limb a little to make sure they stayed on.
Every time I go through my jewelry, I find more amazing pieces. I think every piece that I used on this tree has a match which is always nice.
The jewelry is the perfect size for this tree. I was able to find a piece to go on each little limb.
I just love the way these pictures turned out so there are a lot!
The silver tinsel and pearls are so dreamy looking, don't you think?!
I don't have a tree skirt for it so I just used a vintage table runner with a crocheted edge. It is loosely wrapped around the base of the tree and looks nice and casual.
There aren't a lot of lights on the tree, but the lights that are on it are just right.
The perfect place for this sweet little tree just happens to be a sweet little spot in my home-my reading nook! It needed a little Christmas and this tree did the trick. It lights it up with just the right amount of light and cheer.
See what I mean, PERFECT!
I do believe that this tree will quickly become a favorite decoration at Christmas time. It is so sparkly and pretty even when the lights aren't on. I am already head over heels about it!
Today begins my 12 days off for Christmas. Although I have nothing planned, I couldn't be more excited!
Linking up with:
Have a wonderful weekend!
