Our Santa Tree

Linking Up With Deck the Halls -
(Link in the side bar)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This Tree's Hint - Scroll down to filler section.
When I started getting too many ornaments to put on one tree, I split the tree's up. The Santa Tree used to be anything that was Red, White and Green. Over the years as our collection has grown, it now has it's own tree. It is a favorite. It is in our Kitchen/Family/Dining ARea in one corner with the Vintage Tree in the other corner.


Topper
The topper is a stuffed animal, a bow and some funky picks. I love it!

Filler
All kinds of stuff fit here and there in this tree, there is a little candy house that has become tradition, words like Happy, Believe, etc. I also had a bunch of poinsetta's that had fallen off their stems and so they are stuck deep inside this tree. You can't see them, but their color add's a full look to the tree. If your tree's look sparse, stick something in the middle of them. Anything works, I have used net, sheers, sheets, pillowcases, stuffed animals, anything. You can make any tree look beautiful and the filler is a HUGE part of that.
Ornaments
Very few of the ornaments on this tree are the same. Many are homemade, things we have made over the years for Family Home Evening. Lots are gifts, some are from the ornament exchange I am a part of.

Tree Skirt
This has a standard skirt, but I added all the stuffed animals, tin cans and wooden painted pieces I did years ago to be a part of the skirt. I also hung all the little things around the outside of the tree that are wall hangings.
