Pale and hopefully, interesting

So the Number 10 Christmas tree is again non-traditional. Just a few sticks thrown together

MONT had a trip to Kinglake last week and brought me home some lovely branches..

I started with this to make sure it was going to "work"

Then took to it with a couple of cans of spray paint...white undercoat to be exact.

I didn't want it to be saturated with the white paint, I wanted more of a white-washed look

...and I think I achieved that

The decorations are all neutral too....just a slight hint of pale pink on a couple

...and plenty of crystals and baubles...

Then I added a couple of lights...not too many, but maybe it needs a few more

Almost there...

  1. Hi Lesley, your tree looks great.i was thinking of doing something like this for a table decoration. Thanks for our message. I've been so slack with my blogging and commenting on blogs but have been so busy with work and my scarves etc that I just haven't found the time. Do you have a smartphone or iPad? If so, check out Instagram, it's where I spend a lot of time. Lots of the other girls are over there too. Lots of fun. Take care xx Sarah


I love to hear your thoughts.
