I loved out traditional tree. Although it was not a live tree it was pretty. We converted to a DIY wood Christmas tree about three years ago and I have been very happy with our decision.
Day 12 and the final day of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop is all about our trees. You will find fun ideas and tree decorating.
Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!
Stop by every day from December first through the twelfth for new ideas you can use to make your season brighter!
Meet Your Hosts
They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!
Our Wood Christmas Tree
I know it is a little strange to have a tree like this but I have come to really like it. We decided to to this because we have a gazillion cats and one of them in particular just could not stay out of it. It was practically a full time job to keep her from climbing up the center.
So we created our own DIY wood Christmas tree. You can see the original post here! In the post I show you how we made the tree. This year I updated it and made it look even better.
The Grinch Theme
Since I used chalkboard paint on the tree I can change it however I want so in keeping with my Grinch theme I wrote in chalkboard marker the famous Grinch quote: “Maybe Christmas he thought, doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!” I tried to use my best Grinch font and It fit perfectly.
I also re-did the lights and the ornaments and made them look better. We hang it in our living room on the french doors that lead out to our front porch. The gifts, which are either not purchased or not wrapped, will go under the tree.
The best part of the whole thing is that the cats…for the most part leave it alone. I call it pet friendly!
What do you think of our wood Christmas tree?
