Now I know I gave you a sneak peek at my blinged out tree the other day. Well this lil tree is now sparkling to the max. Our “other tree” is still in VA so I got this one the other day for $25. Now, it was a true Charlie Brown tree when I first put it up. It was so pitiful and sparse. But I knew if I filled it up with glistening ornaments it would be just fine. So here it is ….

Isn’t it cute! My tree skirt was a 70” table cloth that I found on clearance at Target for $4.99. I used a little silver tulle to tie up the hole I cut in it and tied the excess into a little bow. (I admit – my bow tying skills are sub par.)

Here are some close ups of the bling

Don’t you just love it? I especially am digging the way my Rope Ornaments turned out! And for those of you who thought they looked hard – they aren’t. Seriously – once I figured out the stick pin trick, I could make one in about 5-10 minutes.

I am going to go link this up amongst some of the holiday linkies that are out there but this is all of the Christmas that I have going on in the little apartment. But – never fear – I have a plan to build a little more Christmas into the blog! It may require me to be a little “grinchy” though. Intrigued? Check back in tomorrow to see what I mean.

Oh, that little tree is the cutest! I love the color scheme, silver is so peaceful. I bookmarked your tutorial on the rope ornaments, such a lovely idea, I'm going to give them a go this weekend. My tree can always use some more ornaments =]

Your little tree is very cute and the lights make it look silvery and blue...so pretty. Thanks for coming by my blog and hope you get a chance to finish reading all the Twelve Days of Christmas Stories.

You were right...totally adorable! Pretty ingenious on the tableskirt! I'll have to remember that trick!
Merry Christmas!
