Last weekend I had planned on going to my local garden store to buy a little tabletop Christmas tree, but I was feeling under the weather – so instead, on Sunday, I got inspired and constructed my own Christmas tree made from books. Several friends and family members have shared pictures of book trees with me and I always thought it looked like too much of a hassle to do myself. It did take a couple of tries to get a structure that resembled a tree, but I used this tutorial and finally got I shape I could live with. After I put the lights and ornaments on and stuck the star on the top I saw how great it looked and I am perfectly thrilled with my homemade tree.
Do you put up a Christmas tree? I’d like to feature a few bloggers’ and readers’ trees here next week – if you’d like to share your tree on Gudrun’s Tights, email a photo to me at gudrunstightsatgmaildotcom. I know this is very last minute so if I don’t receive any submissions I will feature some other Christmas-y photos.
We’re two weeks away!
