Oh Christmas Tree (contest)

I knew I wanted to try something different this year for our Christmas Tree.  As I was flipping through the latest West Elm Look Book, I was inspired by a Charlie Brownesque Christmas Tree in one of their photos.  I decided this was definitely the tree for us this year!

Kelly Boy cut down this quaint little tree from the woods behind our house.  I put it in a Christmas tree stand to make it easier to work with, then meticulously & strategically plucked off the leaves.  I then spray painted the whole thing white.  Once it was dry, I brought it inside and garnished it in all things silver, shiny, white, mirror & glass.  One of my favorite things about this season is having sparkly white lights….. they just make me happy!

Now I want to see your Christmas Tree pics!

You know that after you work so hard, you want to show off your tree to the world!  Email us with a photo of your Christmas Tree by December 15th: [email protected]  We will feature our favorite TEN submitted images on the blog on December 19th, and let all of you vote for your favorite. The top 3 will win a Kelly Moore Bag of their choice AND a handmade Christmas gift from me 🙂

I can’t wait to see your trees!

    shut up.
    i love it!
    leave it to you to be completely unconventional, unique, but classic all at the same time.
    i adore.
    question though…what do your inlaws think? do they love your style?
    (YES i have personal reasons for asking!)
    keep on keeping on!

    btw, i meant i have personal reasons for asking, bc my mother in law is always the “ohhhhh…ha ha ha. you like that?” factor in my great ideas :)…not because i had a personal reason to ask you…ok….yah…..that’s what i meant….i’ll shut up now….bye!

  3. your creativity never ceases to amaze me! =)

    WOW I super Love. JUST LOVE THAT…I am beyond amazed. I’m planning on something for my little girl as this is her 1st Christmas in her own room so to continue the fun I plan on dressing up her room 🙂 This sure gives me loads of ideas!

  6. That tree is GLORIOUS! I got nuttin’. Does that mean I’m gettin’ nuttin’ for Christmas?

  7. Angie Vinez says:

    So beautiful – and truly unique! I just love it. If I ever grow up, I want a tree just like that. {Although I’m not sure just how feasible that would be with 6 kids.}

  8. You are just way too crafty, I love everything you do.

  9. Chelsea R says:

    It’s gorgeous…pretty much the tree of my dreams. Not much makes me happier than white, and I’ve always loved white trees with white lights.

  10. Yvonne says:

    Ahh.. incentive to get my tree up! I promise some shots of my lime green tree in the near future! No promises they’ll be as pretty as yours though 🙂

  11. The lights around the trunk are such a nice touch! Beautiful! [I don’t have my tree up, yet, but I’ll get a photo when I do!]

  12. Heather Monk says:

    Beautiful tree!! I’ll have to come up with something way more creative for your contest. 🙂

  13. Melissa B says:

    Oh, wow! That’s gorgeous! You go with your creative self!

  14. Jenn says:

    Have to finish the tree today (add the mini bows all over it) but I’ll definitely enter when I finish it today. and that is beautiful! Wanna come do mine next year?!

  15. andi says:

    Holy wow! I started reading your description and was kinda “huh” and couldn’t really picture it and then scrolled down and was surprised! LOVE.IT.

  16. Jennifer says:

    Good luck with the 24 day challenge! I also use Advocare products… I did the same thing with the fiber cleanse the first time. Do not let it sit at all… also, you can mix a little spark into the fiber shake to give it a better taste. Stick with it, the products work! 🙂

  17. Wendi Franks says:

    Another wonderful idea for a giveaway! I have been taking lots of photos trying to get just the right one to send in 🙂 Happy Holidays!!

  18. I LOVE your tree! Maybe when my triplets get a little older (and won’t destroy it) we’ll do something fun and different like this- thanks for sharing it.

  19. Nikki Johnson says:

    LOVE it.. soo creative and just stunning! I sent mine in!! Looks like crap compared to your amazing tree though! 🙂

  20. Goodness.


    I am nearly speechless here. What an AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING tree! Ah! I wish I had thought of that- I spray paint everything I buy, white.

    Oh. My goodness.
    Thank you for the inspiration!
