We’ve made a bunch of DIY ornaments over the past few weeks, and now it’s time to show you how it all comes together. The theme? A Scandinavian-inspired Christmas tree.

Here’s a peek at how it looks from the top of the stairs.

The Christmas in the Community campaign is a drive that asks bloggers to decorate an artificial Christmas tree from Christmas Tree Market for their local charities and organizations, with the aim of making this holiday season more festive for the whole community.

Salvation ArmyChristmas Tree Reveal

As part of this campaign, I am also decorating a Christmas tree and donating it to the local Salvation Army. A few weeks ago, you saw the DIY ornaments we made for this campaign, which includes pinecones, clear glass ball ornaments, and miniature foam wreaths. Well, we finally finished decorating the tree, and we’re proud of the result! Here’s the decorated Fraser Fir tree, completed with the help of the Hillsdale Salvation Army youth group.
