Hanging Trees Christmas Decoration

This hanging decoration has kept me busy, by trying not to think of the rising water levels in my garden and watching it creeping ever closer to the house. Last night it was about 5ft from the back door! The rain has finally stopped this morning, but it'll only take one more big downpour to reach the house. Fingers crossed it will recede.

While I was waiting for my next design team stamps from Creative Expressions I thought I would make one more project from the wonderful Let it Snow stamp set. This is hanging in my kitchen and it looks fab, (you can just see my huge spice rack in the background, oh yes... its a thing of beauty).

I picked up the white wicker ring from the florist and adorned it with ribbons, bells and 3D trees.


Here is a closer look at one of the stamped 3D trees. I hung 2 snow charms (back to back) from the bottom to gave the trees a sturdy hanging weight.


Surely now I can put all the other decorations up???  Yes??

Oh! No! Michelle, you poor thing! My heart goes out to all of you who are being traumatised by this terrible weather. I do hope that your home will be okay, and that you stay safe. We're in West Yorkshire, but my grandmother was from County Durham, so a piece of my heart lies there. I will be thinking of you :)
Your Christmas decoration looks wonderful! x
