Up-cycled Christmas Tree



The days are counting down until Christmas comes, and in the Geordie Goth's household, the Christmas Spirit and preparations are non-existing, well slightly non-existing in comparison to last year.  

Last year,  the boyfriend celebrated, and I celebrated our first Christmas and spent minimal effort, we mainly exchanged gifts and a catastrophic Christmas meal. 

Last year, we had no Christmas decor, but this year we have upcycled my Halloween tree into our Christmas tree with a few additions. The boyfriend surprisingly bought some Christmas lights from Poundland, a pack of stars and colourful lights that are battery powered. 

Pictures from the Poundland website. My Starlights are blue but a pound I can't complain, as they add a bit Christmas sparkle to my tree I am happy. 




 also made some Christmas salt dough decor and decorated it. A couple Christmas wooden decor I bought from the Germany and a stained glass mistletoe I brought from a Christmas fair. It looks quite decent, and I am very happy with it.

    1. Thanks, I am glad you like the tree, and I prefer to have mismatching Christmas decor that's unique and made by smaller vendors.

  2. Sarah, I love what you've done with your tree. I always add a little Christmas wreath to my haunted houses so I love that you're combining the holidays. The stars are amazing!
