A hanging wreath Christmas tree! This is the brilliant idea I had that seemed like an original, but evidently it's not. My friend walked in and immediately said, "Oh, I've wanted to do that for years. It's all over Pinterest." Ummm, I didn't see one when I looked. Oh well!
Here's a close-up of the ribbons. I used a sheer organza ribbon to accentuate the floating effect.
Don't look too close or you'll see the hot mess that's hiding under the big bows. Every ribbon is tied to the chandelier then 2 big bows, one on each side, hide the evidence.
The "trunk" of our floating tree is a vase filled with coffee beans and a candle.
While the ornaments hang, sprigs fill in the remainder of the wreath.
One last shot of the view from our front door.
I was a little concerned about the weight of the wreaths being too heavy, but so far so good. Wouldn't that stink to come home to a damaged ceiling, broken chandelier and crushed table? Yikes!
I hope you have a happy weekend, friends. Bryn and I are hosting our annual Blessings Brunch. I'm off to finish up my cleaning and planning.
