As I mentioned in our Christmas mantel reveal I tried to limit digging thru our holiday bins this year. I used mostly what I had collected over the past few months which was Ric-Rac Ribbon and Jingle Bell Garland. I placed it on the tree and decided that I was going to take it all off and start over because I was not loving it. One morning before school Littlest said hey mom I really like the tree. I was like what!? I told him I was not feeling it and he said well I love it mom. That started the quest of me completing the tree that I had started.
|The tree still was not calling to me but my bag of bottle brush trees was.|
|I went and dug through a bin that I knew held the DIY candy canes from a few years back and we had The Candy Cane Forest!|
Our tree is a Balsam Hill Silverado Slim which came pre-lit. I could not resist adding some twinkling lights to it as well. No tree is complete without some twinkling lights! The tree looks pretty magical in person because some of the twinkling lights lay underneath the snow so the snow lights up.
So there ya have our 2016 Christmas tree.

This weekend we need to fix a few things outside and then I will snap pics of our Christmas porch. We put wreaths up last weekend on the upper windows of the house and they fell off and are laying on the roof. Grrr. I should probably just take pics as it and call it a keeping it real reveal!LOL.
