This year my whole house is decorated in the traditional Christmas decor of red and green. In previous years I had placed a small tree in our bedroom but last year that one actually became our back patio tree so our bedroom had no holiday cheer. This was kind of bumming me out, especially seeing all the beautiful bedrooms on Instagram. Then I got the opportunity to order a beautiful 7ft Tribeca white spruce tree from King Of Christmas I knew as soon as our tree arrived I wanted it to be light and bright and coastal! I have been spending the past few months really simplifying our bedroom and knew this tree would fit right in. The tree arrived within a week and was SO easy to put together. What I loved most was literally NO branch needles fell off while I was setting up this tree! Amazing I know!! I immediately wanted to get to decorating this beauty!
I definitely didn't want to go out and spend lots of money buying ornaments to decorate this tree so I got to thinking...I had some bleached out sand dollars in the garage that I collected over our numerous boat outings. I gathered up those and some shells from our backyard. Overnight I had the shells sit in some bleach and the next day I hot glued on some twine to hang them. The sand dollars naturally have slits in them where I pulled some twine though.
The tree still needed some more decor so I grabbed my favorite burlap ribbon I always buy from WalMart and cut out lots of little circles that I hung using fishing line! I grabbed about two dozen silver jingle bells that I had previously purchased from JoAnn Fabrics from when I added them to my PomPom wreath for the holidays. Which also got me thinking..."Hey my thick leftover yarn FROM my PomPom wreath" so with the little leftover I had from that I made some small pompoms that I could just pop on the tree.
I grabbed a few silver ornaments from our big tree which didn't hurt a thing since that tree is fully loaded! Ha! Lastly I did order 10 3" real bleached out starfish from an online Etsy Store.
All in all I'm SO happy with this tree and all my little DIY ornaments. It fits right into our bedroom theme and color scheme. In the evening this tree is so magical and bright! We've been spending much more time watching our evening shows cuddled up in the bedroom!
Thanks for checking out our White (Coastal) Christmas Tree!
