Frankensteins Monster of a Tree

So my apartment is tiny. I wonder if I’ve ever made a post without mentioning that. Whatever though, because even though I don’t have much space, I can still get myself a Christmas Tree and that makes me super happy!

There’s a market near me that sells… Hmm, not sure how to describe it except to call them “mini semi-fake trees”.

OK. I am sensing more descriptives are needed here. But basically what they do is use small branches of real trees and stitch em together onto a post to make a mini version of real full-sized tree. It’s like a Frankensteins monster of a tree!

Anyway, there are real pine needles and it’s the perfect size for my apartment. Check and CHECK.

I still have plans to make more decorations for the tree. But I don’t know how much more this little guy will take before he keels over.

Photo time!

I’ve got my little Tutti Frutti and Watermelon Bite ornaments in there. PLUS, I’ve got some crocheted donut ornaments up in that thing, which my boyfriend keeps threatening to eat because they look so tasty. Ahhh Christmas… You pretty!

How are your Christmas decorations coming along?

Watermelon Bites!

I think I’m going to need a bigger Christmas tree considering all the ornaments I am making.

At the moment I only have one set of these, which I feel like I need to keep because they’ll probably be hanging from my windowsill plants all year long! But, do not fear, I am planning to make some more sets for sale eventually. Will update this post once I have my shop set up!

The colours kinda remind me of gaudy style flamingo decorations, which are awesome. PS. If someone knows where I can buy the below flamingo wallpaper, please hook me up!

Tutti Frutti Ornament Set

Oh man, these make me crave candy so badd.

I can’t wait to hang these on the Christmas tree. Although at the moment they are just hanging in my chilli plant I’ve got on my windowsill.

If you want a set of your own, contact me! (I will update this post with a link to my shop once I have it up and running!)

The set contains five Tutti Fruttis, so when you order one set for €12.50 you will get the following –
1x Blood Orange
1x Lemon
1x Orange
1x Lime
1x Pink Grapefruit

Each fruit is about 6cm long and 3cm across and is crocheted on both sides. It has a crocheted yarn loop to allow for hanging. Each fruit is also stuffed with cotton to give it some dimension.
