Vintage-Inspired Christmas Tree

It’s hard to believe it’s that time again, my favorite time of year to decorate – I think because everything about it is, well, magical.  This year I’m mixing old with new for a vintage, rustic Christmas vibe – starting with the tree er, trees.  Let’s back up.

We decided to cut our own tree this year and somehow, when you have 5 votes for the best tree, you end up coming home with two.   Since I don’t carry two sets of ornaments, I decided to use some vintage cookie cutters and some leftover bakers twine to make my own.  I  sprayed a few with copper and gold spray paint to add a little color, depth and character to the set.  I used a white and red plaid scarf for a tree skirt, and finished things off with a few sprigs of red berries my mom had picked from around their cabin in Maine.    Simple, rustic, and repurposed.  Exactly my style:
