We picked up this modern spiral (flat-pack) Christmas tree from Ikea last year. Although I can’t find it on their website, rumor has it that they have it at some Ikea stores again this year. As I’ve mentioned before, we collect snowmen ornaments, so this year the tree is green and snowmen. I think it looks very festive, although I’d love to figure out a way to add some lights!
The red “tree skirt” is a just-for-now solution. I think I’m going to try to DIY a felt tree skirt, but lets finish those felt stockings first, hmm.
Here are the two latest additions to our snowman collection. Aren’t they cute? The first one we picked up on our Thanksgiving trip to Massachusetts, and the second is our 2012 ornament (from Michaels). We’re loving the dangling legs lately – you can see 2010 hanging out in the background.
Penelope has been pretty good about not barking at the tree. For those of you who don’t know her well – she barks at things that she thinks are out of place – so clearly she approves of the tree. She hasn’t tried to remove any of the ornaments, although she does lick the lowest ornaments.
