My Tulle Christmas tree


 I have seen some lovely Christmas trees on Pinterest and blogs
I wanted another one for our hall way.
I had a lot of tulle and organza in my sewing stash left over from the Christening Gowns I make.
I needed to find something for the shape to tie the tulle onto.
I looked around my sewing room
and then spied, on top of the wall shelves,
the stands I had made to display the Gowns 


I gathered together the tulle


Ripped it into strips and tied it on,starting at the bottom and working up
making them shorter as I went



I needed a topper,an Angel or Star
Too hot outside to go to the shops today,
so used the little cake topper I bought for my 
daughters birthday cake, (on line from Saturday Finds Etsy Shop)


A few faux roses and cherubs around the bottom




And, da da ,love it

                        I think I'll look for some white or pink lace to throw over the lamp shades



Do we ever finish decorating for Christmas ?
Not while we browse blogs and Pinterest.
So much inspiration out there heh?
My next post hopefully will be the whole 
of my home Christmas decor

Happy decorating

I'm off to visit the linky parties now
The links are on my side bar.

what an awesome way to re purpose your tulle. I may have missed them on your blog, but I don't remember seeing your Christening Gowns.
This little tree is so pretty!
