I simply just love this time of year, December is one of my favorite months. I love the Christmas spirit, I am so thankful for my Savior, and love everything that comes along with this time of year!
This year, we decided to finally get a real Christmas tree from a small, local place in Caryville, Wisconsin. I didn’t want just any old Christmas tree stand and skirt, so I looked around my house to see what I could come up with, and, below you will see the final results of my creativity this Christmas, I hope you enjoy!
I used an old potato bin to place the Christmas tree in, the tree stand fit right inside of it , so it worked out great. The front of the bin, was a bit plain for me, so I looked around for something to place on it, and came across my Grandpa’s old fold up tape measure, shaped it into a star and hung it from the front of the potato bin. I think it adds the perfect touch.
I wasn’t going to add a tree skirt, but the more I looked at it, the more I decided, it really needed one, every tree does! I didn’t have one in the house, and didn’t want to go spend money on one, so I looked around again , with my creative eyes all ready to turn anything into a tree skirt, when I came across a new paint drop cloth, and instantly knew, I had a new tree skirt!
What is a Christmas tree without some cute little vintage trucks tucked underneath it?! I love old trucks, (real ones and toy ones 😉 )
