With all my wishing and hoping for my beautiful tree, I have finally buckled down and decorated for this year. It's a smaller tree (for a small space), but it's just right by me.
My tree skirt is a red velvet circle with white Santa lining. (That's exactly what it was called -- Santa lining. I got it next to all the other materials used to make Santa outfits.) Just a quick stitch on the sewing machine, and a great tree skirt was at hand!
For my topper, I used two BIG bows tied back to back to look like one large bow on top.
It's not Martha Stewart, but it's mine.
