Chalk It Up to Another Type of Christmas.....Tree!

In past years I've shown you real trees, faux trees, post trees, painted wall trees, a forests of trees....well you get the idea.  But this has got to be the first chalk tree I've ever had.  Nice thing about this tree is it doesn't need water, it doesn't loose needles, and the cats can climb up it or play with the ornaments!  Gotta love that! 

I had a painted tree last year on this wall, but I had since painted it with chalkboard paint.  I wasn't in the mood to repaint it, so this was the next best thing!

It was kind of fun exploring the artistic side of me!

I removed some of the other pieces on the wall, but kept my dustpan chalkholder.  I just added some small vintage Christmas balls to make it look more festive!

I thought about just doing the whole wall in a tree, but I love this little table and thought it would be a shame to put it away.

It has incredible patina!

So I filled it with rock salt, and popped in these limbs from a vintage bottle brush tree, along with the small vintage Christmas balls.

These little diddies were plain ol' clear votive candleholders, but with a little silver spray paint, a little sanding, and some rhinestone snowflakes, wa-la!  

Alongside side I placed this newer silver tinsel tree.  And although it's new, that's okay.  It still has that vintage look.

These perdy little pearl-like strands of garland add a little something to the tree that I like.

I filled the bottom of this planter with some pearlized vasefiller.  It was just enough to keep the tree in the stand and add a little pazzazz.   They fit perfectly with the pearl-like garland!

A vintage scale, an old rusty wheel, a cloche and a little cement bird seems to complete this vignette!
