This is a story about how I dragged a ten-foot tree down the block. Kidding, but by the looks of my neighbors and the FedEx man driving by you’d think I did! I had been on a "branch hunt" for a few weeks. I love the natural look of adding branches to fall decor. One day while walking my little Brylee I finally found the perfect branch at the school park near our house. It didn’t look that big but once I started walking home with it I seriously felt like the thing was 10 feet long and the crazy looks my neighbors gave as they drove by confirmed that. In reality, the thing was only about 2.5 feet tall but I guess people couldn’t understand why I was walking around with a small tree. Ahhhh…. the things we’ll do for a craft project!
I spray painted my little find a deep chocolate brown and placed it in a “fallish” gold vase that I picked up for a steal at Home Goods. I found some acorn and emerald green ornaments at Hobby Lobby and strung them from a few of the small branches.
The first thing the hubby said when he saw it was “Why do you have a Christmas tree up?” Then our neighbor came over a few days later and commented, “You already have a Christmas tree up!” Seriously, this is why men can’t continue to rule the world.
