Here is the results of those ideas! A winter tree.
I used the same brown lighted branches from my Halloween tree. Do you remember that back in October? They are now dressed with winter theme ornaments.
I created ice skates with a Victorian look based loosely on the idea from a Tilda Christmas book.
I then came up with this idea of scarves. This ornament is a tutorial on needlework blog now. You can go to my other blog, NeedleNecessities, if you would like to try the tutorial. They are incredibly simple to make. Even if you feel you are not a crafty person, give it a try.
This is the ornament that started the idea for me. It is a tutorial from Dawn at The Feathered Nest and they are just so adorable! Thank you so much Dawn for this wonderful ornament tutorial.
I have made a vignette of some winter looking items including a plate I bought years ago in the Alsace, France with a sledding scene. I placed my newly started collections of cream jugs on a piece of Battenburg lace from Brugge, Belgium.
It is fun to celebrate winter in a special way!
