Shabby Chic White Christmas Tree

Hello sweet friends!
I have been working some pretty Christmas magic in my Shabby Chic Cottage!
This is the Christmas tree I put up in my living room.
I fluffed up the top with some pretty roses and glittery poinsettias!
  As always, I look at gorgeous magazines and blogs to get decorating ideas.
I really wanted to fill out some spaces above cabinets with garland. I wanted to use what I had so I dug into my Christmas stash to fluff up the top of my dining room cabinet...

Make it Fabulous for Less Tip~
For this garland I used pieces of a cast off faux Christmas tree limb. To get the snowy effect spray tree limbs with adhesive spray and sprinkle with faux snow you can find in a bag for $1 at the resale shops or dollar stores. Add some pretty flowers or beads from your craft stash and you have a fabulous garland for cheap!





This Holiday season I will spend time with my friends and family. This particular year presents challenges that are beyond my control but not God's. I pray as we all find ourselves spending time with our loved ones that we remain patient and kind and lean on God for PEACE!
I think this psalm is pretty and simple...
Be still and know that I am God.  Psalm 46:10
I am joining Faded Charm for White Wednesday
Happy Thanksgiving!
Hugs,

  14. Your tree is very pretty. The rose topper is especially beautiful. I've started my Christmas decorating too, though my tree top is bare because I haven't wired the star up yet. Thanks for sharing your pretty tree with us.
