I was visiting my younger sister the other day when I noticed she hadn't put up her Christmas tree. Since mine has been up for about 3 weeks now, I was shocked (and slightly horrified). When I asked her about it she said it was so much work for just her and she just wasn't feeling up to it this year. I totally understand. It is an awful lot of work for just yourself. So, while I totally understand not wanting to go the whole nine yards, this is no excuse for zero Christmas cheer what-so-ever. I knew instantly what I needed to do. You might remember my post about my friend Joel who works for House and Home magazine. I first noticed his work on this project in the December issue. Ever since I saw it I wanted to try it but didn't have anywhere for it in my house, I have found the perfect spot...my sister's house! Here is her new tree that will be delivered and set up tonight!
I used material I had left over from another project, a piece of driftwood for the top, and twine to hang it with. All items I had around the house. The only thing I had to buy was the chalkboard paint, but I have been wanting this for awhile anyway! For Joel's tutorial on how to make your own click here.
