The perfect christmas tree decoration

{image from here}


I think that I have finally found a use for all those chandelier crystal drops that I have lying around the house.

So simple yet oh so chic.....


Have a happy weekend

  1. One year I used all the crystals i could find from a lamp shop I was working for and decorated my tree. I returned the crystals to the shop after Christmas. I had a fabulous tree and didn't spend any money!

  3. What a wonderful idea!! and crystals have such depth, dimension and "life" - they twinkle and flicker in the light... sounds wonderful. Off to organise the xmas tree... have a great weekend. Gena

  7. Yes! Yes! Those old lead crystals are
    wonderful.
    Once used all crystal and those tiny blown glass animals for a child's tree. Also Teddy bear trees are great. Theme's are fun.
    In the 90's I worked in a floral shop.

  10. Brilliant. I was at a flea market and a vendor had thousands. Next time I will snatch some up for this.

  11. How pretty... and the light green chiffon ribbon really is the perfect match with the crystals... keeping it all delicately light and translucent.

  12. Hi there, I have always used antique crystal drops, however this year, spurred on by the vintage make do 'n' mend, I have gone back to my vintage coloured glass baubles from my childhood (they have been boxed), and the colours are fantastic, no more understatement for me!

  14. Hi Leeann,

    What a lovely decoration, the sunlight bouncing off the crystal would give it such a magical look.

    Happy weekend

  15. They're wonderful! I've used some of mine too and they catch the light so perfectly.

    Happy holidays

  16. I love chandelier crystals on the Christmas tree, Leeann. I have a few but nowhere near the ammount that you probably have. They are so twinkly.
    Have a lovely weekend. XXXX

  17. Oh, those look lovely! I have a whole bag full of them. My Christmas tree is going to be decked out this year! Thanks for the idea!

  18. Perfection! They will look so lovely twinkling as they catch the light, which reminds me, I must give my chandelier crystals a clean so they are at their twinkly best above the dining table.

  19. I've put mine up too!! All shiny and bright. You don't really need anything else to decorate the tree if you vary the ribbons! How are you possum???
