Farmhouse Christmas Tree with Lots of Ribbon

Sharing is caring!

Every Christmas Season since I began blogging I have been participating in the Christmas Tree Decor Blog Hop organized by Michelle at Our Crafty Mom. This year the hop has 28 different Christmas trees for you. So many styles and ideas you will find them at the end of my post.

Did you ever switch plans at the last minute because you found a new inspiration? That is exactly what happened to me this year. I had planned not to use any red this year, none at all then I saw this ribbon.

The tree downstairs is farmhouse rustic, no ribbon, all neutral farmhouse colours. So this tree is feminine and I am enthralled with how it turned out. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Farmhouse barns are my theme this year, so when I spotted this ribbon at Michael’s of all places I snapped all the three rolls they had.

When placing ribbon on a tree, I prefer to start with the ribbon first. Especially when its as bright and bold as this tree’s ribbon is. Because the Christmas tree ribbon is the focal point, I added these grain sack ribbon in simple double bows.

After the ribbon was done, I tweeked it and then added the largest ornaments.

Thankfully I already had these barn ornaments from last year, some cotton stems and red berries.

The last step was to add small ornaments, unfortunately I did not have nearly enough purchased ornaments to fit my theme so I created some last minute Farmhouse macrame wreaths, and homespun wool DIY Christmas tree ornaments in pink.

I chose the pink wool to soften the impact of all the red, It brightened the tree a bit without adding the contrast white ornaments would have.

    1. Hi Sonya, yes I did, but I whipped them up as a last minute thing because my tree felt bare. I will Post a tutorial right away. Thank you for mentioning them.

  5. Your tree came together beautifully, Leanna! The long tails of the ribbon makes it quite charming along with your handcrafted ornaments! What a lovely old fashion Christmasy effect!

  8. I love the red and white combination of your tree it is so striking in the pictures. I also love the addition of the cotton stems, I know it has been done for a couple of years, but I still love the the look sooo much in rustic trees especially in your application! Pinning this perfection for later!

    1. Thank you Jen, This is the first year I thought of the cotton stems, its always great to use what you have on hand first. Thank you very much for the Pin.

  9. This tree has such an old fashioned look to it. It’s so charming. I love the farmhouse barn theme. I had to peak at your neutral tree too. It’s also beautiful and your dog really adds to the look . I just had to keep going, your house is so warm and cozy. I love the pink pumpkins too. I’m glad to discover your blog on this hop.

    1. Thank you very much for the warm compliment, you really made my day.

  10. I love the barn ribbon that you used on your tree! I’ve never seen anything like it and it’s much prettier spread out on a tree than it would be tied into a bow. I also love your red and white striped ribbon. You created a spectacular tree and I hope that you enjoy it bunches this Christmas season.
