Little Christmas Tree - WOYWW 184

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I still have a few things to finish on my little Christmas tree but I thought that I would show you it today for What's on your work desk Wednesday as there isn't much on my desk apart from some Christmas cards to post.

This is a little table that I have by my desk and decided to put this little tree there. It is actually the top half of a 5 foot tree but I just stuck it in some florist foam in a plastic pot and added some lights from Tescos for £1.95. The magazines are mainly old Christmas editions of home magazine that I like to dig out and have a look at, at Christmas. 

The poinsettia flower was from Poundland and came with 5 stems and I just took the flowers off. The other decorations are ones I made and have showed in previous WOYWW posts.

The basket has some things that I thought that I might use for Christmas presents or making more decorations.

I really love the combination of the red and kraft with the green of the tree. The parcels I made using Tesco's 14p wrapping paper and the tin came from poundland. 

The tree is missing a star and I would like to cover the top of the pot  and maybe add some washi tape to the pot but I might get to that before Christmas!

So the tree and decorations didn't cost me much at all as most was things I had, re purposed or were cheap, so loved it even more.

Thanks for visiting my (desk) today and have fun looking at others at Stamping Ground.

Linking up with Julia at Stamping Ground.


  1. Love your little tree Louise & the handmade decortations are very cute! My desk is a bit of a mess...not sure I could find the space to put up a little tree. I think it would be great inspiration though...looking at the tree while making cards & ornaments.

    1. Thanks. My favourite colour is red so it is definitely inspiring.

  2. Your little tree is so festive! It must be fun to have it there being cheery while you work at your desk. Hope you're having a good WOYWW. ~ Laura #90

  3. Great little felt decorations - I tried some felt keyrings etc this year for our craft sale - it's lovely to work with. I've just bought a gingerbreadman die but haven't got round to sewing him together yet (he might be ready in time for next year!)

    1. Thanks. Hope you get to sew your gingerbread men. Love the little gingerbread men.

  4. Love your little tree and its trimmings. Thanks for sharing and belated WOYWW.
