Last year I shared a tacky project - a JMU Christmas tree. We put it up along with our big tree - it's so festive and I love it!
I love it so much that this year I made a University of Richmond tree to go with it!
They taunt each other from opposite ends of the living room. Since I've only finished one semester at UR I haven't collected many mementos to hang on it so it's a little bare, but I did purchase some red and silver ball ornaments and a $1.99 fleece blanket to use as a tree skirt.
I did add some awesome ornaments, like my first UR-specific ornament:
Also, I painted some clear ball ornaments to dress up my tree, just like I did for the JMU one:
it was hard to get a good shot of this one - it's supposed to be a spider but the design in the back blurred it :)
I also added my Virginia ornament from the Handmade holiday...
...and my cupcake ornament from BFF day:
There's plenty of time to collect ornaments I love for this tree, so I won't be running out to find several UR-related ones. I did put one on my Christmas list though ;)
Since we now have 2 college-themed trees, we didn't put up the big tree this year. It's sleeping up in the attic - maybe it'll make an appearance next year :)
