The Cranky Queen's Garden Club entered the Sylacauga Beautification Council's Christmas Tree Contest. The contest offered cash prizes & we chose to create a Christmas tree focusing on wildlife & nature.
|We started with a disassembled tree & bags of ornaments, bird seed bells, berries,grapevine & burlap.|
Five of our Camellia Garden Club Members chose to participate in the "trimming of the tree." We hot- glued ribbon onto birdseed bells...
We carefully hung ornaments on the tree...
Grapevine & berries with burlap type ribbon gave the tree that "homemade~comfortable" look...
Don't you just adore the birdseed bells?
Redbirds, poinsettias, berries, glittered pinecones & wooden snowflakes adorned the tree. The hand warmer heater added that vintage look!
The grapevine star honored the Birth of Jesus Christ!
|Little Bird's Nest tucked into the branches...|
|Cardinal ornaments purchased @ Dollar General...Can You Believe???|
Red & Tan Burlap served as the skirt with pine cones nestled under the tree...
We were very disappointed that we did not place...we felt that our tree was a "winner"! But in the spirit of Christmas...we did not "pout"...Well, The Queen was a "little cranky"~LOL!
But...a hug & snapshot with Prince Logan before he left for the Star Dust Winter Formal put me right back in the holiday season
STAY CALM & TRIM A TREE!
