Let’s zoom in now to appreciate the details of the various “accessories” that make up Julia’s Christmas fireplace vignette – like this Christmas tree.

For information about how to make this tree and the many other details in Julia’s fireplace vignette, see this video. And to learn how she put the entire scene together, check out this video.
