Rustic and Cozy Christmas Tree + Christmas Tree Blog Hop!

Christmas, Christmas time is near, time for joy and time for cheer. We’re so happy to be back again this year, joining the Annual Christmas Tree Decor Blog Hop. With two dozen beautifully decorated trees to explore, you’re sure to be inspired with the Christmas spirit.

It’s so nice to have something beautiful and joyful to look forward to with Christmas around the corner. Working from home now, I’m excited to be able to enjoy the decorating that I’m doing and take my time with it.

Every year our friend Michelle of Our Crafty Mom hosts this Christmas tree blog hop, inviting dozens of her fellow blogging friends to share their trees all decked out for the holidays.

Last year our tree was more traditional, with touches of lime green, red and plenty of family treasures.

This year I wanted to go warm and cozy. So I pulled out all of my white, silver and champagne gold ornaments.

I also added some handmade touches like painted pine cones and decoupage napkin wood slice ornaments. We’ll be sharing the tutorials for those DIY’s soon!

Tips for Decorating your Christmas tree on a Budget

As I’ve collected and made so many Christmas decorations over the years I was determined to save money and not spend this year. I also am trying to stay out of the stores. So here are some tips that helped me with using what I had this year and still get a completely different look for my tree:

  • Pick a color-scheme and only use those decorations for this year. Save the other colors for next year. Alternatively, try color blocking: pick, for example, all the red ornaments/decor for one area of your home and then a different color scheme for another.
  • Even if you are using a faux tree, add in some natural tree branches/twigs if you have them for additional fullness and varition in textures/colors.
  • A tip I learned from The DIY Mommy this year – cluster your ornaments in threes when decorating the tree for a fuller look.
  • Ribbon can be so expensive. Consider buying a yard of fabric (such a the buffalo check flannel I used for the pine cone ornament above) and cut it into strips to use in place of ribbon.
  • When shopping after-season sales, think outside the traditional. I picked up these little reindeers for 15 cents each a few years ago. And they’re not even ornaments – they’re adorable little napkin rings!

Your tree is festive and merry! I love using items that don't start out as ornaments for my tree, too. Great tip about using fabric.

The reindeer are adorable and I would have never known they were napkin rings. I liked your tips especially the one about grouping the ornaments in 3s and using fabric instead of ribbon. Your tree is beautiful.

I love your style of Christmas decorating! Your tree is absolutely beautiful and definitely speaks "warm & cozy" to me! The handmade ornaments are the perfect touch to any tree! Merry Chritmas!

Such a pretty tree with your color choices. You created the warm and cozy feeling for sure. Working from home is such a challenge. It's great to finally have the warm and cozy feelings of Christmas to make it all better. Merry Christmas season to you.

I really like that you chose all the natural elements for your tree. The burlap/like ribbon is cool too. It makes your tree look so warm and inviting. I feel like homemade ornaments make the tree so unique and personal.
