More Nature for a Faux Tree


I can't stop putting leaves in my artificial Christmas tree. I think it's the internal yearning for a real tree that's getting to me, but I live with my parents, and my mother can't candle the smell. Alas, I'll stick to pressing leaves to place around in my fake tree. I also spray painted a few silver for a frosty, Winter look. 



I pressed the leaves for this projects just in time, because actual Winter blew in the following night, and all of the pretty red and yellow leaves curled up and died. It's finally Winter here y'all, and I'm freezing. I always want the weather to be cold, and I romanticize layering and fireplaces year-round, but when the cold actually comes, my wimpy Southerner side comes through. I am a cold lady, and no one will show me how to use the fireplace. One day I'll figure out how to go about Winter properly.



Anyway, happy Monday and all of that. How are your festivities coming along?

  1. I like this though, a nice mix of fall and winter. Also love the silver sprayed ones, they look lovely! I'm eating a lot of chocolate, drinking tea and I'm also watching some Christmas movies - so the spirit is definitely cozy and festive! Have a lovely week Amber! Xx

  2. The leaves are such a festive touch to the tree! Love how they look. This time of year I'm seriously always in front of the fire when possible, LOL. It's fun and cozy...and warm. Hope your week is off to a great start Amber!

  3. Can feel you, I am a cold lady too, haha. Love the cold, but when it comes to getting out and baring with it, then I don't like it that much anymore. Besides that, we have a fake Christmas tree as well, but it looks very natural. Will try the trick with the real leaves this year :). Wishing you a great day! xx
