I want an ornament tree. This, from the girl who rarely decorates.
I think I know why this urge has overtaken me. It’s because my mom has one, and I am supremely taken with the cuteness of being able to change ornaments with the season. I don’t really do wreaths, or those little garden flags, nor do I have a fireplace mantle, all of which seem to be the primary mode of decorating for the season. An ornament tree, though, seems perfect! I may not “do” decorations, but I DO do ornaments! Especially if I can make them myself.
So I’ve been looking around at ornament trees. And, of course, I can’t find what I am envisioning. Leah had the good suggestion of branches in a vase, and then I ran across a similar idea on the Purl Bee of all places:
However. I don’t have space for something like that, gorgeous as it is. Maybe someday when we get a house! For now, I was thinking smaller. And collapsible. Hmm.
In the meantime.. it can’t hurt to start planning hanging ornaments, right? 🙂
