Christmas ideas III - Tree branch

scandinavian style branch with pastel ornaments
Hello! How are you today? 
Are you ready for Christmas? 
If not don't worry, you are not alone. I've got still some gift hunting to do but so far what I enjoy the most is making the decorations and sharing them with you. So let's continue!
If you haven't noticed, one of the hottest decoration trends this season are what I call alternative Christmas trees, which are branches placed in the big glass jars or vases, decorated with ornaments. They look very minimalistic yet stylish and they can be adjusted to your taste easily, depending on what you hang on them.

Have you got some extra branches in your garden? Bring them home! I love Scandinavian design which is why I decorated my branch with crochet stars - bought in IKEA, pine cone-shaped ornaments and handmade pastel balls. Yep, I made them myself, by simply painting foam balls with different shades of purple and white acrylic paint. Less is more right? :)

Have you made any Christmas tree ornaments yourself? What are your favorite treasures to hang?

And that's my little, real treasure...chilling
 Stay tuned for more ideas to come in the next few days!
