Lampshade Christmas Tree

Here is my interpretation of the lampshade Christmas tree.  It was a fun project.


Perfect for displaying all of my beaded baubles.









Don't you just love pom-pom fringe?


Oh my goodness.... I've been decorating up a storm and I've got more to show you but I've got to spread it out a bit. 


I think Santa likes it.

Your lampshade tree is sooooo fun!! What a perfect way to display your vintage ornaments, that might otherwise get "lost" in the thick needles of a real tree.
