I've always thought it would be fun to decorate an upside down tree, and I decided this would be the year I did it!
I looked around at the ones available in the stores.....they all seemed a little large, and who knows if I would even like it or not! So, H and I put our heads together and came up with a plan to make one.
H used a 3/4 wood bit to drill the hole for the rebar and a hack saw to cut the rebar to the length needed for my tree.
Then we just wired the tree upside down to the rebar.
H had originally planned to use the hose clamps you saw in the earlier photo to secure the tree to the rebar, but changed his mind and used bale-ing wire instead!
So, here's my upside down Christmas tree.
I left the bottom iron piece on in case I want to change it back to a right side up tree. All I would have to do is remove the wire holding it to the rebar and put the stand that came with it back on.
I know I keep calling it a Christmas tree, but for now it's going to be a Fall tree.
I started at the bottom of the tree which is now the top......lol.....by adding a big yard nest that I made a couple of years ago.
I filled in around the nest with silk roses and cotton bolls.
Then, I started adding fall ornaments to my upside down tree......
Pink owls.......glittery chandeliers......
Antlers, acorns, more owls, moose antlers.......
I placed some pink pom poms I made around the tree stand. I didn't want to cover up my vintage tree stand with a skirt, but I wanted to decorate it somehow.....and this is what I came up with!
I placed my fall tree on a tea cart.....
I have cleared last weeks tablescape off and am ready to create my tablescape for this weeks post.
This was such a fun project and I hope that I shared enough information that you could make one if you wanted to.
Have a blessed week ahead!
