DIY Christmas Tree Tablescape
Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la la, la la la la! This year’s DIY Christmas tree tablescape was based on a DIY cone trees covered with moss and beaded garlands. Use a variety of sizes to add interest and limit yourself to two colors not counting the silver and gold.
These simple to make trees were made from several sized of styrofoam cones from your local craft store, moss mat and beaded garlands. The moss came with a sticky backing and were a snap to place on the cones, and trim level on the bottom with scissors. If your moss does not come with a sticky backing, use a tacky glue meant for styrofoam or fabric. I also had purchased some pearlized short pins which helped to hold the garland and beads into the cones.
Using a palette of red, green, silver, gold and white made the display dramatic and festive. When you are at the craft store check to see if there are any other moss accessories, like the small and large moss spheres which added interest and contrast to all the points.
Looking at the ribbon section of the store is a great way to stumble across other textures which add richness to the composition, like the gold braided embroidery trim on the ball above.
I’ll leave you with a few more shots for inspiration to go out and create a table for your family that you’ll remember for years to come. The key is to have an open mind and to have fun, letting your inner child play. Have fun with your table design and have a Merry Christmas!
Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la, la la la la!
