Oh Christmas Tree!

I wanted to do something different with my Christmas tree this year. Both of my girls will be living on their own this year so I decided to let them go through and take any ornaments they want for their own trees. I needed a new theme - and it had to be inexpensive. I decided to go with a snow and cardinal tree. I started by putting artificial snow on all of the branches. Then I added some plaster snowflake ornaments I bought on sale at JoAnn's and glittered myself. I also made snowballs using stryofoam balls and more glue and artificial snowflakes. White sparkly bows and plain white candy canes from the Dollar Tree, white and silver glass balls and some felt cardinals finish the theme. I love how it turned out - what do you think?
