For some reason, I love rabbits. I don’t actually have a rabbit (I think my two cats would go nuts) however I do think they are small balls of adorable, fluffy cuteness! Over the years I have picked up many “rabbit things” that make me happy. For example, I have a candle holder shaped like a rabbit, a decorative rabbit pillow and some rabbit art work hanging on my walls. I could go on…but I think you know where I’m going with this. A few years ago, I was online checking out some after Christmas sales and just happen to come across some white and silver glass rabbit ornaments. I found them on Martha Stewart’s website and couldn’t believe how inexpensive they were. I guess Martha was tired of rabbits cause she was practically giving these bunnies away! I can’t remember exactly how much they were…but trust me, they were cheap. I bought several boxes of ornaments and stored them in my basement…and that’s where they sat…for three years. This year, I decided it was time to set the bunnies free and buy a small, live Christmas tree just for them.
As you can see by the picture…I have a lot of bunnies. That’s what happens when you find an awesome after Christmas sale. Aren’t they cute? Anyway, I purchased a small pine tree at the grocery store (it was only $20..complete with stand) and placed it on the small table in my kitchen. I figured it would look nice in the front window and also bring some Christmas spirit into the room. I used a tablecloth that I already had and a set of lights from last year. The lights do blink slowly…which is fine with me…but my husband says they drive him nuts. Don’t worry, he will survive.
The vision I had in my mind for this tree was a winter (and obviously rabbit) theme. I used mostly white, silver, different shades of blue and of course, glitter. I wanted it to have a cool, icy feel…and i think I succeeded. I had so much fun decorating this miniature bunny tree and it didn’t take long at all. I get a happy, cozy feeling when I think of baking Christmas cookies as the tree really does add a special ambiance to the room.
Have you ever had a Christmas tree in your home that is decorated with a particular theme? If so, tell me about it in the comments section! I would love to hear from you. Also, if you know of someone that is unable to decorate a tree (due to health or other issues) small, tabletop trees are perfect. I am going to pick up a tree for my elderly neighbor this weekend and decorate it for her. I know she will be thrilled! Thanks for stopping by and as always, HAPPY CRAFTING…or in this case DECORATING! Please take a moment to enjoy the rest of the pictures below!
