I picked up a couple of trees at Home Goods and Michaels and added ribbon.
Gingerbread, both real and fake, are some of my favorites during the Christmas season.
For the Christmas tree, I added red birds mixed with silver icicles and glittery snowflakes. My boys are not thrilled with "pretty" trees, so I made sure to use a smaller tree to hang all of our fun ornaments. We love pulling out the homemade school ornaments each year, along with a couple of Star Wars and Sponge Bob ornaments. Yeah, Sponge Bob and the Star Wars M&M guys go on the back of the tree.
I filled different sizes of glass balls with powder snow. Really messy to fill, but I love the look with a few added berries, pine cones, and greens.
I have never bought a tree skirt, but I broke down after I saw this cute ruffled burlap skirt at Cost Plus. I love it!
This year I added small red ornaments in varying sizes. I wired some ornaments and used hot glue on the rest.
