I’m beyond excited to decorate for Christmas this year. I have two upcoming Christmas tours that I’ll be sharing right here on December 1st and December 4th. Before I started trimming the tree I wanted to share a few things about our new tree and how to make it look bigger than it really is. This is my first experience with a flocked try. I was hesitant because I’ve heard so many people say how messy it is. Let me tell you this beauty was an absolute breeze to put up. It’s branches are so full that it hardly need fluffying. And virtually no mess! The flocking stayed out on those gorgeous branches. The best part it was $69. I linked all the sources below but the tree can be found here *please note price update at bottom of the post.*
It’s 6 1/2 feet tall but I wanted to give it more height. So I put it in a basket, when you do this you don’t use the tree stand and just let the bottom branches hold it up. But then to give it another 12″ in height, I put it on a indoor plant stand that I had. And that brought it to the perfect height! I simply covered the stand with a tree skirt no one will ever know.
My twelve year old pointed out, that with the tree elevated there’s even more room for gifts. Below you can find links to all you need to recreate this for yourself. I also linked some of my bulb lights. These sweet tree came pre-lit but I added a different shape light in addition to the ones it came with to give it extra sparkle.Tree/Basket/Plant Stand/Lights/Tree Skirt
*UPDATE* The $69 price applies if you have a local Wal Mart with the tree in stock. If it’s not local and needs to ship its $265. I was not aware of the price discrepancy until after I posted. I’m sorry for any inconvenience, or confusion.
