With a silver & gold color scheme, these neutral planters will look great anywhere. The addition of a large lantern (and flame-less timer candle) warms the look. Artificial pine garland & pine floral were used rather than real so they can be reused year after year!
Here is a quick video showing how to light a Christmas tree! Light amount is a preference, so if you like more subtle lighting, weave the lights closer to the edge to use less. If you want more, weave a little further into the tree. This balsam fir is lit with incandescent string lights. I used about 850 light count on this 7.8 ft tree. 150 of those are twinkle lights that were mixed in (after the regular lights) to give the tree a sparkling look!
Adorned with golden paper stars, this gilded tree is covered from head to toe with golden ornaments & glitter floral. In the first part, I will show you how to make 3D paper stars - an easy craft! Then, watch the tree put together from start to finish! I try to do an artsy tree each year - 2016 got the "Wave Ribbon Christmas Tree", 2017 got the "Elegant Feather Christmas Tree", and 2018 gets the "Golden Star Christmas Tree"! :)
Thanks for watching! :)
