Christmas creating

I can't believe that I didn't blog about this last year...
Oh well better late than never..
Last year Darcee and myself decided to make our own Xmas tree
We cut out large cardboard  triangles and taped them all together
 Just so you can get the size into perspective
Darcee is just over 6ft tall
 We then sat it onto a large Christmas box

 Wrapped it in lights
Then I set about make lots of large tissue paper flowers
 Yes me in my PJ's...and on the phone
when a girl is in a creative mood everything else just goes out the window
 Well over a hundred in the making
 Star attached to the top, then I used a glue gun to stick the flowers on
 I then glued Christmas baubles to the centre of each flower
 This is it sitting on top of my Christmas tree skirt
 Added pressies and handmade reindeer
 and this is it all lit up
 Now if you are to do this...
I wouldn't recommend using fairy lights for they just didn't show through
It's the glow from the rope light that gives the best effect.
Mmmmm now what to make this year.
