I was so excited to finally finish decorating My Winter Wonderland Christmas Tree for the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas! I can confidently say it turned out exactly as I had planned and I’m happy I spent that past month selecting the exact ornaments I wanted to use. I pulled some of the ornaments from my previous collection featured in My Family Christmas Tree. The rest I found at various stores like Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, and Dollar Tree. And then I made a few of them myself, of course. Would you expect anything less?

My Winter Wonderland Christmas Tree
I was so incredibly excited to buy a white tree this year! After seeing my friend Yami’s Ice Cream Sundae Tree using a tree from Treetopia, I knew I wanted to get one. Thier trees are so incredibly nice. I’ve had many artificial trees over the years and none even come close to the quality. What’s even better is the huge discount I got when I bought it. I got 60% off plus from their sale and another 10% with a code. Now I’m addicted and I want to replace my other two green trees with Treetopia ones. Did I mention their trees come in many different colors? Yeah, they have a rainbow one, too. Anyway, back to my white tree. The name has cashmere in it and I will say the flocked branches are very soft. It also came prelit which is such a great feature I didn’t know I needed in my life.
To start, I added some large iridescent mesh ribbon. I tucked it in between the different branch layers to create a wave going from top to bottom.
I started decorating it with some of the blue ornaments I either bought, made, or had already.
Then I added the silver ornaments.
Then I added the clear ornaments.
And finally I added all of the white ornaments.
I think My Winter Wonderland Christmas Tree turned out exactly like I had imagined or better.. I filled in any empty spaces with some blue iridescent and some white glitter ball ornaments. I think in the future, I should add a few more blue ornaments. They’ll pop against the white tree and add to the whole icy effect. So what do you think? What would you add or away?
