See my little pumpkin salt & pepper shakers..I found them at a flea market for $3.
Do you recognize the frame?
I just added some fall leaves to the centerpiece. Let me know if it looks better with or without the leaves. I also changed the candle to white. Which color candle do you like better?

You know how in the winter ice crystals just sparkle when they catch some sunlight? Well you can recreate that look in your holiday decorations! I'm sure you've see the ice crystal branches in stores or the garlands that have ice crystlas in them. Now you can make your own! It's very easy! All you need is:
Glue (I use Aleene's Tacky Glue)
Colorfill Diamond Vase Filler 1 lb by Garden Splendor
(I bought mine from eBay, although you might be able to buy it at Hobby Stores like Hobby Lobby or Michaels)
Place a sheet of newspaper down for a work area. Pour a pile of Colorfill Diamonds in the center.
Place tacky glue on the branches and roll in the Diamonds. Let set 1 hour and you have ice covered branches. I might suggest that you spray the branches with an acrylic sealer after they are iced. Easy as that!
Variations: Add some artificial moss or red berries to some of the branches
Remember to show us all your Ice Crystal Branches when you get yours completed!

Have you ever seen an upside down tree?
Love this tree! She said this is the most popular tree in the store. She also said it looked better a few weeks ago before customers started buying things off of the tree.
Love the feathers!
How about an All Red Tree?
A Copper/Bronze/Gold Tree (this would even look great for Thanksgiving)
Hope you enjoyed seeing the christmas trees as much as I did! Although the pictures don't do them justice! What is your favorite?

We have a birthday cake on Christmas that says, "Happy Birthday Jesus" and we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.
We also always go to church on Christmas eve. We take communion and sing Christmas carols.
