I love the colors next to the brown wall.
A close-up of the theme
"Antennas" as Troy calls them.
Here are the snapshots, but I feel they do not do it justice! I think the garland is what makes the tree come alive. I bought a yard and a half of the material for $1.50 and snipped strips to make it.
As you can see, I go for a more unorthodox tree topper. Troy likes to tease me concerning them. Occasionally as he strolls by the tree he says, "Christmas tree calling home." :-)
"Anonymous" guessed correctly; the stars were made with scrapbooking paper. I found the template for them from a link on another blog. It really helped me create a whole new tree for $6!
I hope all of your decorating is coming along smoothly!
