Apart from being two atheists celebrating two Christmases, this year we're having two Christmas trees as well :) An old, boring one, trimmed in red and gold (I'm showing you just a detail because I can't get far enough to take a photo of the whole tree),
and a new, modern one in red and silver.
A not so eco-friendly project for which we needed a branch and a metallic spray paint. OK, we used old newspapers for the stars and that's, unfortunately, the only green thing about this project. I hope we'll at least save it for next year.
Sorry about the crappy photos, both trees look much better in real life, especially with light shining onto the little disco balls and projecting tiny dots of light all over the walls and the ceiling. We used a torch (that's flashlight for Americans and Canadians) hidden at the base of the tree for that. And because the disco balls are so small, they move in the circulating air and so the tiny stars twinkle all the time. It's magical!
As for the woven paper stars, the tutorial can be found here, at Houserevivals blog.
