Carousel Horse Christmas Tree



I had so much fun decorating our Carousel Horse Christmas Tree!   It is definitely for the "young at heart"....but, mostly for our 6 year old grand daughter that stays with us 2-3 days a week.    The white tree is on a rotating stand, so it gives the illusion that the horses are going around the tree.


We took out the small dining room table and put our tree right smack dab in the middle of the room...

I had to give this horse a "make over" before she could be part of the "herd"....

here is the link if you want to see her before pictures.... http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2013/11/spring-horse-transformation.html

You may remember this little filly from our Christmas front porch last year......

This cloth horse was a yard sale buy this past summer.....read all about her here...

This one was also on the porch last Christmas.

Our little wooden horse got a fresh coat of white paint.

For the tree skirt, I used a Crazy Quilt on the floor and topped it with a big ruffled can-can...
I have a musical Carousel on the buffet....

I bought it at an auction this past summer....

You can see the tree from the kitchen.....

and from the family room....
I decorated all the area around the tree with the Carousel theme.

The inspiration for the colors on our Carousel Horse Christmas Tree was the stained glass piece in the window....one of my favorites!

Merry Christmas!

  18. I enjoyed looking at this tree. My mother in law has a carousel horse that is similar to these. She had four boys. When they were too big for their bouncy horse, they sold it at a garage sale...or so she thought. Really, her sons had it painted and turned into a carousel horse. Now, it is the first thing she would save from her home, very meaningful to her. Thanks for sharing!

  27. Penny,
    It is me again!! I have been stalking, no catching up, with you today!! I love how you decorated this tree. I know I already commented but i had to come back and look again because I have been picking up ornaments in the colors that you used on this tree at the Clearance sales! I love the colors and I plan on doing this with my white tree in the guest room next Christmas. I am still disappointed that i did not get to decorate my upstairs this year but I am determined that that will not happen next year. I plan on doing my whole guest room up in these colors! Thanks so much for always inspiring me my friend!!

    Many Hugs,
    Deb
