Coming back to you now?
Well without many words or making you wait any longer here she is now!
Impressive Huh? Is she all you thought she would be? Actually this is the mid-stage. Here I had added a string of lights first then greenery LOTS! of greenery and then another string of lights.
OK now on to the real After!
After adding the lights and greenery, I started at the top by adding poinsettias, then I began placing large gold and brown bulbs throughout the tree. Then the smaller ones. I used feather boas for garland and flower heads of the poinsettias in places that needed a little more punch! I rolled up some sheet music to add as well. Once I had all the decorations I wanted I added more greenery filling in empty spaces using both pine and boxwood clippings.
For the tree skit I used a piece of burlap and then layered a white with gold highlights throw on top. For a more rustic feel.
