It’s officially December and the countdown to Christmas has begun. Last week I shared 10 Black Friday Sales for you to shop and I’m continually sharing stocking stuffers. But, what fun is wrapping gifts if you have no tree to put it under. Earlier this week, I shared my Christmas tree and a lot of you asked for details so keep reading for those!
Disclaimer: My tree isn’t 100% done so I’ll make an updated post once it’s completed!
The Tree: I already knew that I wanted a flocked Christmas tree, but it seems like I wasn’t the only one. Almost every store was sold out of them. I ended up finding my tree used, but I’ll leave a few links for similar trees below. The one that I have is made by Aleko and is the 8 foot, snow dusted holiday tree. It’s available on Amazon Prime so I’ll link that one as well.

Christmas Lights: Lights can be confusing because there are different shades, shaped and sizes. I wanted lights that were on the warmer side but didn’t like how “warm lights” looked so ended up getting the clear. I used 3 boxes of the 100 mini lights set. They’re only $2.99 at At Home
Ornaments: All of my ornaments came from either Big Lots or At Home. At Home had a BOGO sale, so I grabbed the glitter white ornaments and the all blush ornaments from there. They were $3.99 each and came with 16 in the box. At Big Lots, the ornaments were 25% off and I found the pearl white ones ||my personal favorite! || in a set with the clear ornaments for $8. I also found a big set (of 28) for $15 that had gold and pink ornaments but I didn’t use them all.
Accessories: I really wanted that snowy effect, and tried using microfiber dusters at first but I wasn’t pleased. I went to JoAnn’s Fabric Store and saw a fluffy feather boa and was instantly drawn to it. It was $9.99 but I had a 60% off coupon so got it for under $4. Michael’s also has the feather boa but it isn’t as fluffy and their coupon is only for 20% off. I’m going back to JoAnn’s to get another because I see a few gaps in the tree that I want to place the feathers in. I was able to cut the boa into smaller pieces so it made it easier to drape it like a garland. I The boa is 6 ft in total. I also got the ribbon from JoAnn’s and cut it into smaller pieces to make wrapping easier. I just tucked each end so that it looks like it’s being pulled throughout the tree. Any ribbon over 2 inches will work fine but try getting one with a wire so that it shapes easily.
Wreaths: Hanging on my sliding doors are wreaths that I got from JoAnn’s Fabric Store for 50% off. I have them hanging by some satin pink ribbon that I got from Michael’s.
That’s all the Christmas decor that I have up for now, but I’ll keep adding more throughout the month. If you have any questions, you can leave them in the comments below!
As Always, Stay Pretty
