Who says you can only have one Christmas tree. Christmas is the one year that I feel you can really go all out on your decorations. That doesn’t mean it has to go overboard and be completely tacky. You know “those” people. However, I do love a little extra sparkle this time of year.
Before, when I lived in a much smaller home; I had one tree and it could be seen from just about every room. Now that I have a little extra space I want to take advantage of that and have multiple trees.
This tree is for my kitchen. With three kids and a husband, aside from the laundry room, the kitchen is where I end up spending most of my time. Cooking, doing dishes, cleaning, and even homework is usually done in this space. Adding a little Christmas spirit in this area of my house only seems natural.
I found this little tree at a yard sale for only a few dollars over the summer. Be sure to search for your Christmas decorations during the Summer months. You’ll be able to score the best deals around this time. I wrapped some burlap around the bottom to make the tree feel more like a live tree. With some cookie cutters (I found the entire pack at Goodwill for $2!) burlap wrapped cinnamon sticks and an old broke scoop on top of the tree I created the fitting theme for my kitchen space.
I used these paper clips to clip on ornaments at one time and ended up liking the look of them even without the ornaments, so they got to stay.
Some simple cinnamon sticks wrapped in strips of burlap and tied directly on the tree are a simple way to create a warm scent and look.
Instead of a star I used this broken scoop and placed a candle inside of an enamel ware dish. Of course, I wouldn’t actually burn the candle on the tree, but it gives this tree an old fashioned feel.
