Hanging Christmas Tree

It's Friday folks and we're embarking on December 1st. I've been holding off on anything too Christmasy until December actually arrives. Since that happens this weekend, it's a fine time to show you what I've been working on...

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.

This is such a creative idea, I love it! I haven't seen anything like it on Pinterest, but don't you hate when that happens!? I'll think I came up with something completely original only to find someone else beat me to it. I love your blog!

I have made several of these, off course not exactly the same. They are fun to make. I really like the idea of the table underneath.

I love this! Attempting it right now, and I am having such a hard time getting the spacing right. Any tips would be great! So beautiful.

I started make a floating tree in my foyer about 5 years ago. Like one commenter said... just when you think you have an original idea someone else has done it too! I love your idea with candle underneath. I'm going to borrow your idea for this year. Thanks! Your floating tree looks beautiful. Merry early Christmas!
