Red White and Blue Tree 2015 -and unusual ornament ideas

This year I set up my little silver tinsel tree for the summer holidays, love that it has some white lights! While I do have a few new additions, this patriotic tree is not quite as ~full~ as I'd like... Since I don't find much to buy, guess I need to get crafting:@)

I did find a few after season items last year: Love the great look of these fan picks on the tree. They're from Michaels and intended to be used as food picks but at about 3" round are great filler.

Another fun idea is using earrings as ornaments for small trees, I picked up the bells at Walmart on clearance (lower right).
So I like keep an open mind as I look around, you never know what might look great in a totally new way.
Pics of my feather tree decorated for the 4th of July from 2012 can be found HERE.

Show your colors and have a happy day:@)

  9. It looks great, Lynn. All of my 4th of July things are packed and in storage, or I'd look through and see what I could send you. If I get over to the storage unit this week, I'll take a look.
    Happy Summer!

  14. Love this tree, Lynn. :) I really like the star and fire cracker ornament with the stars and stripes. Too cute! I, too, love those fan picks; I like the way they divided the red, white and blue in the fans. The American flag makes a perfect tree-topper. As always, your trees are so cute and full of clever ideas.

    Have a great day, Lynn!
