My Snowball Christmas Tree Decorations – all the details
Hey all, are you surviving the weather out there? It finally snowed here and my munchkins could not be happier! Finally the outside matches my snowy tree inside. Speaking of my tree (how’s that for a segway?) today I’m sharing all the details of my Christmas tree decorations.
I mentioned before, I was going for a cozy snow ball fight feel this year (I know, I know cozy and snowball doesn’t particularly go together, but it makes sense in my head). Lucky for me, my flocked tree already has me halfway there with it’s snowy branches.
As you can see, I didn’t have a tree skirt for it, so I used 4 crates (from the craft store) that I painted white, around the tree. I had them in my garage from this summer project, and thought they would be perfect staggered around the bottom of the tree.
Here you can see it a little better before I piled the presents on.
And after the presents, I love the height it adds and it makes my pile of presents look so much bigger. Santa’s got nothing on me!
I found the cute wrapping paper at Target, but I might try to make my own again this year too.
I also found these mitten ornaments at Target perfect for a glam snow ball fight.
I added a bunch of sweater ornaments (see here how to make your own)
and little bunches of jingle bells tied together with yarn.
To lend a little color I added some winter berries I found in the woods,
as well as a few faux berries I found in the wilderness that is Hobby Lobby.
I topped it all off with a bunch of branches to add a natural feel.
and I’ve got myself one snowy, glowy christmas tree.
Stop back tomorrow for some more outdoor decorating details or take my full Holiday Home tour here.
FYI, the word you want is SEGUE, not segway (although it is pronounced the same). A segway is a type of transportation.
Thanks Mary, whoops!
This is simply gorgeous… I am pinning :)
Your tree is beautiful!! Can we see more of the”Peace On Earth” decoration above the fireplace?
Hey Chelle sorry for the late response you can check out how to make your own here http://www.thelilypadcottage.com/2013/11/make-holiday-embroidery-hoop-art.html
Crates look really cute! Good idea! Tree is beautiful!
Kelly, I love the way you’ve put twigs in the tree to give it extra dimension :-) Also love the little bells tied with yarn – that is beautifully old-fashioned :-) What a lovely tree you’ve made.
Thank you Petra, I love bringing the outdoors in :)
It is so beautiful. I just love your style. Please come by my blog and share this beautiful post on my Creating Christmas link Party.

You are going to love my answer Stacy, would you believe Walmart?? $125 cheapest I have seen by far!
SOOOO pretty. I love it! I put my tree on a wood pallet this year, so I’m loving the crates. :) Great job.
Oh love that idea Heidi!
Your tree is absolutely a dream! Too gorgeous for words! Thanks for the inspiration!
Oh you are so sweet Leslie!
Absolutely beautiful tree! Gorgeous!
Absolutely beautiful tree! Love the crates instead of a traditional tree skirt.
I have seen this flocked look a lot lately. I like it. Your tree is beautiful. My tree is the same every year as I have too many ornaments to buy one more. I do love sitting here when it is dark outside with the tree lights on, sipping coffee, reading blogs and listening to Christmas music. Wonderful way to start a new day!
Have a beautiful day!
Absolutely love it. All of it.
