I love a beautiful Christmas tree full of sparkling ornaments and bright lights. Every year I see new and different themes and colours used on trees, and I get so inspired to create the most perfect tree.
This year we decorated a tree for the kids, using homemade ornaments in bright, colourful felt and painted cardboard stars. This tree brings a smile to my face every time I look at it! The simplicity of the shapes and colours gives the tree such a joyful feel. This lovely faux Spruce is made by Tree Classics, a maker of the world’s finest artificial Christmas Trees.
Underneath the tree we’ve placed a small wooden train track for our Thomas trains, and created a mini Lego village, filled with people and animals! My daughter and I had so much fun creating our little town, while my son gets easily distracted by the train set.
The Pine Crest Slim Spruce Christmas Tree from Tree Classics was exactly the tree I was looking for. Something slim and tall that would fit in the corner of our living room perfectly – not too big or too small. When it arrived, it was easy to assemble because it was labelled very simply. (PS. Keep the numbered tags ON so next year when you go to put it together, you can do so just as easily!)
To put the tree together, I went layer by layer, fluffing each brand up one at a time. While putting the tree together, I also put on the tree lights at the same time, going up and down each branch, hiding the wires in the branches.
The artificial Christmas tree is a gorgeous dark green colour, and one of the fullest trees I’ve ever had. There are so many tips on each branch, the tree becomes very dense and full, very quickly. Super important if you’re placing it in front of a tree! (I hate seeing through a tree!)
I love the way our kids Christmas tree turned out! It brings some fun and magic to our living room! The artificial tree from Tree Classics is a beautiful addition to our home. The Pine Crest Slim Spruce Christmas Tree is very lush, and stands tall, but with a narrow footprint so it can fill any corner without sacrificing too much floor space.
Here are some DIYs of the tree ornaments that we made:
