This year, Treetopia reached out to me about participating in their White Tree Mystery contest. I was supposed to choose from an assortment of their pre-lit white trees, and then decorate it and show you guys. Easy and fun. I love white trees anyway, and my old one has seen better days, so I was happy to get a new pretty one. Plus my old one wasn't pre-lit... pre-lit trees are the best, am I right?!
The "contest" part of this post is that you guys are supposed to guess which tree I chose for my bedroom, and whoever guesses correctly first is entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card to Treetopia. So, which tree do you think I chose?!
Here are pictures of my tree!
I wanted to go with a light, natural, slightly bohemian look to match the rest of our bedroom. I made a bunch of ornaments because, 1. I like making ornaments, and 2. it's cheap :).
I think it looks great within the scheme of the rest of our room, what do you think?!
It's so pretty at night, too!
I made a fun pom pom garland. All I did, was buy this bag of tan pom poms from Hobby Lobby, and string them onto some yarn that I already owned. I used a thick needle, and the pompoms just stay where you place them, because the yarn is so thick.
(yarn. I found it at a thrift store. I think they're the best colors.)
I started out using white string, but it didn't show up well enough on the tree. So, I found that yarn and used it instead. Plus, the pom poms stay on the yarn better than they did the string!
I found these glittery ornaments at... wait for it... Walmart. I never go there, but couldn't find any cute ornaments anywhere else and popped in. These were only 97 cents. I bought three and wish I'd bought more!
The wood slice ornaments were also some I made. I found the slices at Hobby Lobby, and hot-glued mint green yarn on for the loops!
The wicker bell ornaments were in my stash of vintage ornaments that were actually old family pieces. I had 6 gold ones and 6 basket-colored ones in my stash. I love them on the tree in our bedroom, because we have so many natural elements in there.
I bought these frosty glass balls at Hobby Lobby along with the black and white string. I tied the string onto the ornaments and hung them up. I love the B&W string on that tree in there! Looks cute with my Ikea pillows.
Probably the most intense ornaments I made, are these fabric tassels. Not hard, just took a little while. I found some old fabric scraps, and cut them into long strips. I looped them in the middle, and wrapped yarn around the tops. I hot glued the ends down. Crispy and burned fingers, but I think they turned out cute!
For my star on top, I used neon pipe cleaners to make an easy star. I actually made this a few years ago for this tree.
The gold/glittery balls are also from Walmart.
What do you guys think? I love it!
