Ok-it’s not really itty bitty. But it is
Not feeling like digging out all of the ornaments, nor spending an insane amount of money on a tree, I decided to use the one I purchased at a thrift store (for $2 because it was missing its stand!) for my sale, as our Christmas tree this year.
It’s only a couple of feet high, but once decorated, I think it works well.
Because it lacked a stand, I had to figure out what to put it in to keep it upright. A thrifted little bucket and some rocks from the yard worked great. I wrapped a piece of red ticking fabric around it for a skirt.
Instead of using our traditional decorations, I opted to keep the icicles on it that I used during my sale. I added a few rusty star nails and tucked some vintage gold and silver balls among the branches.
My garland is lace and ribbon that I had on hand.
The tree topper is a silver tin star-another thrift store find.
Very simple, rustic, yet sweet.
And, a little tacky, I guess. I left the price tags on all the tree decor from my sale.
Just in case.
