My favorite time of year has begun and I’ve just complete tree number one. While this tree will be part of the Christmas 2017 album I wanted to do a special post for those that aren’t super happy with their tree to begin with. Maybe your tree is to dark green for your taste, maybe the branches lack variation, or they may be sparse. Whatever you Tree looks like just think of it as a blank canvas!
For this particlular tree I wanted to lighten up the green and add some more texture. This was accomplished by stuffing the tree with a variety of greenery before decorating. I used everything! Ivy, ferns, grasses, berries, and more. Basically if it was in the not used greenery box it went on the tree.
When decorating a tree with greenery the key is to either stick with one or two types evenly spread or stuff as much as you can being careful to balance color and texture. After filling in our tree we added our other decorations.
This tree is located in a central location of the home so I kept it in line with the surrounding decor. Three types of ribbon (Isn’t the black and white stripe just amazing!) standard round ornaments, some unique ornaments, and even beaded garland make this tree a stunning site and to be honest the photos don’t do it justice!
