“Getting the Christmas Tree” Vignette

a-Christmas scene with truck and trees 020

The ground and the windows were frosty this morning while I walked the girls to the school bus. The weather is turning here, and it’s the Santa Claus parade this weekend. With Santa coming to town, I’ve started a little Christmas decorating and thought I’d share this sweet little Christmas vignette with you.

I made these rustic tree branch cake stands a while ago, see how I did it here. I found some little trees at the dollar store, and went to the toy store to find a little red toy truck. I sanded the truck a bit to add a little age, and tied a tiny tree on top with a wee bit of twine. Then, it started snowing. 😉 It was that simple, and I think it’s so cute.

Life is a party with little Christmas vignettes that are this cute.

  9. I love this, so original! I am going to duplicate this for my Mother with an old red truck my daddys brother gave him for Christmas years ago. Great idea and thanks for sharing.

  10. Okay, there may be a problem with a big old copycat of your idea down in Texas. I’m just sayin’, it could happen with an idea that cute!
