I've been saying how I wanted white & gold and may be silver or burlap for decorating the Christmas tree this year (...saying and not doing hem hem). Well, I tried to resist buying more commercial decor stuffs, and instead, went through my stash of ribbons (I don't hoard, I... collect some hehe). I found these perfect vintage white cotton trims (they are left-overs from my mom's sewing projects back when she was actually sewing clothes for herself!). And several pieces of white/off-white satin/organza ribbons. I was planning on making new ornaments with white felt,using this tutorial. But look at how 'charged' the tree is already. The 'skirt' is actually a white cloth and a gold voile superposed and just draped.
