As my 17 year old would say, "Only in my house!"
This years Christmas tree turned out to be FUNFETTI. Although, I must confess. My first inspiration was to get a tie-dye look.
It all started with my daughter's black light party last year. We had an old white artificial tree. I thought it would glow under a black light, and it did. But a blue/white glow wasn't enough for me, so I added flourescent pink and orange. Unfortunately, The colors could only be seen upclose, from a distance it still looked blue/white.
In daylight my flourescent painted tree looked pink. For me, way too common. Feeling an itch to re-use and save the earth (and our checking account), I decided to "Paint the Roses Red". Yes. I was planning to paint the tree. So out came my spray and acrylic paints. And I turned up the tunes. No way was I going to listen to old Bing and dream of a "White Cristmas". Instead, I pulled up Pandora Radio and listed to Tower of Power, James Brown and "Played some funky music 'white girl'"!
With my new tree looking less alive than my old Grateful Dead T-shirt, I decided it needed to look alot more like a party. For streamers(tinsel) I used bright ribbons in co-ordinating colors. And since I've gone this far, the reflective qualities of CD's were a no brainer for ornaments. The DVD's and CD's even reflected prisms of colorful little rainbows through out the room.
This is what happens when you force a city girl into the country.
Have a blessed Christmas.
