Christmas tree O Christmas tree

It took 4 days to finish the bloody tree. I figured I may as well share the pain.

And finally, it looks like this.

I did it in so many little spurts, I have no idea how long it took, but even after this photo was taken, I found another four ornaments that have been added somewhere in there. 

To the right of the photo is the kitchen, so you can see the tree clearly from two sides as you move through the house. This is effectively only half of the decorated tree. 

The star is a new one. I've wanted an LED one for ages. It looks like this.

The lights on the tree are also coloured LEDs, so it looks like this.


  1. I raise my hat to you my dear. Stunning :-) Adam has decreed that we will have a real tree this year, so I'm not sure when we'll be doing ours. Next weekend I think.

  2. Thanks. :)

    A real tree is a pretty ambitious effort in and of itself. They smell so wonderful though.

  3. Wow! Looks amazing! All I've done for our tree this year is buy a little 10cm tall one from the Reject Shop. We don't have room for anything bigger!

  4. @Di: I have a problem with Christmas. I think I'd need to put up a tree if I was spending Christmas in a tent. But any tree is good. :)

    Thanks Chally!

  5. Gorgeous!

    We were camping one year for Xmas when my son (now 13) was 3 and so we made a Xmas tree (complete with tinsel and decorations) out of a Banksia tree branch and braced it to the wooden upright pole on my Dad's old canvas tent. It was one of the more fun Xmas's I remember!

  6. Bri, that is so cool! I should point out that the chances of me ever camping at Christmas are vanishingly small, but I'm inordinately pleased that you put up a tree while camping. :)
