Fresh trees are sooo expensive. We always buy a Noble Fir, but this year we decided to try a Frasier Fir because it cost considerably less but has a very similar look. I LOVE it! It is really pretty and the branches have almost a silvery look in some light. I was excited to make a new tree topper for it, so last night when we decorated I left the topper off.
Tonight this is what I made.
Last night we put up the tree. Hubby put the lights on for me. But I used my flash when I took the picture, so it is hard to tell :)
Our outdoor kitty was so happy that we have an inside tree :)
I saw a cool idea on mudpies blog to use book pages to make a tree topper. Last weekend while enjoying a weekend away with hubby for our anniversary I found a book of sheet music for a couple of dollars in an Antique Mall. I decided to use it to make my own :) I have never liked my tree topper, so I really hoped it turned out. I LOVE it!!!!!
I inked the edges with chalk ink to add to the vintage look. I am so happy with the way it turned out!!!!!!!
Our kitten seems to enjoy the tree as well.
