Christmas in July at Trees n Trends

We thought we'd jump on the bandwagon. It seems like everyone else is celebrating Christmas in July, why not Trees n Trends? And after looking over our weekly ad, I came up with the perfect way to join in with the semi-yearly festivities.

This week in our everyday ad, we have a 30" cone-shaped boxwood in a pot (item #LQB046 GR). It's made to hang on your walls (the pot is flat in the back), but I thought it'd be great to make it into a Christmas door hanger. To do this, I'll need a few things.

#1. Spray paint

I spray painted the pot gold but you have my permission to spray paint it any color you'd like. In fact, if you're feeling jolly, paint it to look like a candy cane or maybe even paint it red with a big black buckle on the front!

#2. Battery-operated lights

Starlight string lights available at Trees n Trends

Year-round, we have battery-operated micro LED lights at the store that are perfect for this very idea. I strung the lights around the boxwood and hid the battery pack behind it. 

#3. Tree Topper

Finally, I found a tree topper that I bought at the store last year that was just the right size.

Now for the big reveal...

What do you think? Would you like to try this? What would you do differently? I'd love to hear from you.
