Silver White Winter Christmas Tree

It all started with packaging for my Etsy shop Christmas orders!  I have been wrapping my orders in brown paper packaging, tied up with string .  .  .  

Or, it could have been the yearly Oprah extravaganza!   Either way, "My Favorite Things" has inspired a few Christmas ideas this year.  

Like my Christmas tree - I think of it as a Silver White Winter tree!  It's full of white glittered snowflakes, tin icicles, wintery white birds, silver glass pinecones, and silver walnuts.  

The white glittered snowflakes were wood snowflakes that I got at Michael's in the clearance section for $1.49.  I spray painted them white and then added some Diamond Dust glitter to make them sparkle.  The tin icicles were hand crafted and I have had them for years.  The glass pine cone ornaments were gold (last year my tree was more traditional in reds and gold).  I spray painted them with Real Silver spray paint - easy transformation!  

The walnut ornaments I made last year and were also gold.  They are real walnuts with a small eye screw in the top and cording to hang on the tree.  I just hung them all on a stick and spray painted them with the Real Silver spray paint - cords and all!  

There are some glittered words, white pearl stems, glittery leaves, frosty white and silver glass balls, and this cool silver German glass glitter ribbon I found at my favorite local shop to complete the look.  

So, there you have it - my Silver White Winter Christmas tree!
