Every year I make a lot of my gifts, Christmas cards, woodburned ornaments, decorations, etc.  So this year I decided since I spend a lot of time in my “creative” room that I needed a bigger tree to keep me company.  I had a very tiny one on my work table the last couple of years, but that just wouldn’t do anymore.  I found a great 3′ tree with all white lights and it was just the perfect size for sitting on a table I had in the room.  I decided on white and burlap ornaments, with a touch of lace here and there.  I made the burlap ornaments and some of the white ornaments I purchased and others were things I had around the house.  The burlap nest is filled with 3 white rocks I found on the beach.  The burlap bird is filled with one cotton ball to give it dimension.  I used some gold thread craft string I got as a nice surprise when I ordered from Etsy recently for the garland and then decorated the wood spool with burlap and lace as another ornament.  I also wrapped 3 empty boxes for presents at the base of the tree and embellished them with pearls, lace, etc.  my tree
