I am so excited to start sharing our Christmas home decor ideas, starting with our main floor neutral farmhouse Christmas tree. This room is so bright and white and the family room is by far my favorite room. The Christmas tree is understated and quiet, I hope you find it charming and different.
Welcome back to year 6 of our Festive Christmas Event where we team up with oodles of our talented blogging friends we admire to bring you a plethora of creative ways to celebrate your holiday season
You will find new ideas every Monday and Wednesday between Oct. 19th through Nov. 18th. Scroll all the way down to find all the ideas linked at the end. At the end of my post you will find a listing of all the other DIY Christmas ornament ideas from the Fabulous Christmas group.
In Canada it’s pretty standard to put your tree up after December 1, and bad form to put it up before Remembrance Day. This year everyone is leaping into holiday preparations, looking for something joyous. Although we put up our tree early but in honour of our veterans we won’t light it until after Nov 11th.
Make sure to check out the other bloggers Christmas trees I am sure you will find several to inspire you for you tree.
Rustic Farmhouse Christmas Tree
This year I am keeping with a more rustic Christmas look, skipping lots of the glitz and sparkle in favor of a homespun look. As always I start with a theme and shop the basement for any existing ornaments that fit in. This year I grabbed our barn themed ornaments. Barns have a warm spot in my heart from the years I had hanging out with the thoroughbreds. We no longer have them and I miss my time just hanging out with the horses. Barns bring me back to those moments.
The DIY projects started with adding more flocking to the Christmas tree. You can read about how to flock a tree here. The black star top, the black framed pictures, and the cinnamon stick garlands are homemade. I will share the tutorial for the black tree star and the cinnamon stick garland once I get them written.
This tree is designed to be quietly neutral and calming to look at. I purposely kept it neutral with no reds. After deciding on the barn ornaments, large white stars, and birch snowflakes from the basement I purchased the natural wood bird houses. The store also had some pretty white bird houses with buffalo check roofs, but I decided the warm colour of the wood for the tree in this very naturally bright room.
As the ornaments are large I hung them into groups of three, each large star has a dark pinecone under it and a wood snowflake above it. The bird houses have a hanging bell above it and a wood slice ornament beneath it.
I am not certain if this tree is completely finished yet, but were still a few fun wonderful weeks away from Christmas. Decorating and looking at other ideas to inspire me makes me ridiculously happy every year.
