We bought all kinds of fun stuff. A chess game. Ribbons. Forks. Feathers. Flowers. Apple Ornaments. Red Glitter. Dazzling Silver Sticks. Yard and half black material. Small Round Mini Mirrors.
After making our purchases we came home got out the glue sticks, tacky glue, and started creating the ornaments that would soon adorn my tree. Then my friend Lisa returned home... She quickly joined the excitement. She started gluing the dazzling mirrors to the black tree skirt. After burning my finger and completing the ornaments. Lisa and Josh decorated the tree..
Our Twilight Inspired Christmas Tree:The plastic forks were a must. To fancy them up a bit my Mom and my niece tied red or black and white checked ribbons on them. This was to represent Forks, Wa. The setting for the book.
We added the apple ornaments all over the tree to represent the first cover of the Twilight Series. Which is a symbol for Bella, the forbidden fruit. The crushed flower is for the cover of New Moon. The flower represents a delicate Bella and how she feels in Edwards absence.The red ribbons are from the cover of Eclipse. The ribbon symbolizes how Bella feels, torn between life and death. Vampires and Werewolves. The Chessboard represents the forth and final book, Breaking Dawn. The red pawn represents weak human Bella and the White Queen symbolizes the stronger Bella.
There a glitter silver sticks that jaunt out from the tree. They are to represent Edward dazzling in the sunlight. You can't see them in the picture but they are there and they add so much character to the tree. The tree skirt is also adorned with mirrors that dazzle a reflection of white twinkling lights. There are also feathers stuck within the branches of the tree. At first I bought feathers because I thought that was what was on the New Moon Cover but I was wrong.. I think the feathers are a cute added touch.. and well feathers are a part of the series.. We won't discuss that here...(um, book four-torn pillows)I just have a point and shoot camera so it does not do the tree justice but we are all quite pleased with our Twilight Christmas tree. I purposely did not show the top of the tree because I don't have a clue what to top it with. I am thinking a stuffed lion and lamb. The Cullen Crest. Or something like that.. any ideas.
Do you guys do themed trees?
