So I was totally stressed about my Christmas tree this year… mainly because I didn’t have one. But I scored this unbelievable pre-lit 7.5 footer at my local Goodwill for $39! I can’t for the life of me figure out how a tree in this good of condition ended up there, but I am so happy the person took it there just for me! How nice! 😉
I wrapped the tree in silver sparkle tulle ($10 for 10 yards which I cut in half lengthwise). I added some cheetah ribbon for $2 a roll. I shoved in a couple leaves and feathers I already had… that was my foundation.
Then, believe it or not, I got the majority of my ornaments from the 99 Cent Only Store. In my opinion they don’t look it at all. All the glitter and silver ones. I had the all the word ornaments (i.e. Joy, Noel) from my previous tree.
These are the KMart Mecury Glass Acorns that I got for $2.67. I love these!
And Voile! No more stress. A Christmas tree designed for less than $100 including the tree! I am pretty happy with the result!
But I keep seeing all these fresh tree lots everywhere and it got me wondering… does anyone still do fresh trees? What is it at your house? I’d love to know!
