On My Tree: January

I decided this Christmas that we wouldn't have a huge tree in the living room as I knew Little Miss would try and dismantle it. So we had a little advent tree in the kitchen and I made a branch tree in the living room.

Our Advent Tree

OH found a huge branch in our garden. Originally I was going to paint it white but decided I rather liked the natural. I covered it with white fairy lights and then decorated it with my favourite decorations.

When it came time to take the Christmas decorations down I realised I loved the tree lit up at night so decided to keep it and just replace the decorations. I had some birds that I made last year that where on branches in my office so used them for January.

The plan was to make more birds throughout the month but I just couldn't find time. I'm going to do a new theme each month and try some new crafts to make decorations for the tree.

The birds are coming off tonight ready for February's theme. Bet you can't guess what it is?


  1. I am guessing hearts! I have lots of hearts for my Christmas tree and every year I think I must do a Valentines tree for February! Love your branch, it looks fab. Now to wonder if my guess is right x

  2. I love your tree! I guess cherry blossom or hearts too! ;-) x #homecorner

  3. love the idea of having a tree all year long. #homecorner
