Very different Christmas Tree and hand made decorations
My Mum has been making crazy Christmas trees for about 6 or so years and this is my first Christmas in my own house so I had to do my own Christmas tree and decorations! I have stolen some of my Mums ideas but done my own interpretation. It is a 2D representation of a tree made from 3 tree branches I collected from nearby my house which I spray painted silver then strung together to create three tiers with silver gift ribbon and gold cord. I then made a long garland from recycled wrapping paper, a few other paper silhouette decorations and some streamers, all made from recycled wrapping paper and then I made some figurines using clothes pegs and felt. The snow men and soldiers were really annoying and I couldn't get them to work as well as I wanted but the elves worked brilliantly and are sooo cute! This was really cheap to make and looks really effective- would look great with fairy lights on it too!

The last 4 photos are of my Mum's Xmas tree and decorations from this last Christmas just gone.

Aww I love crazy christmas trees! One year, we decorated ours in a Heaven and Hell theme. The top half of the tree had white lights, angels, and nice stuff, while the bottom had red lights and halloween decorations, and an ozzy osbourne ornament....The year after that it was Andy Warhol, we had a silver tree with soup cans and homeade ornaments of art, and after that it was birds, only bird ornaments and a string of cranberries and breadcrumbs that was our gift to the birds, and this year....well just wait and see ;)
