I can’t wait to show you my rustic Rustic handmade Christmas tree decorations.
I decided to change up my Christmas tree theme this year and knew I needed to do it on a budget.
I am calling my theme rustic but when I search that theme online I can see there is a large interpretation of that theme.
Toe-may-toe | Toe-mah-toe
It’s all the same right.
I decorated my tree the day after Thanksgiving.
Since it is going up so early minimal is a must.
I can’t have too much going on in the room at one time or else the tree will be gone and put away before Christmas is over.
Call me scrooge if you must but it’s my thing and I can’t help it.
I had fun creating these ornaments, especially the cold porcelain/air dry clay ones.
|| wood slice with chalk paint, cold porcelain using sharpie, refashioned glitter star ||
|| plaid napkin in mini hoop, fresh orchids, feather bird ||
|| dictionary paper crane, wood slice-verse written with chalk, acrylic paint cold porcelain ||
One special touch we added to the tree this year was fresh flowers from FTD.com.
They sent me a beautiful bouquet of Christmas colored orchids.
Each stem came with it’s own water supply which works perfectly for them to live on the tree.
To keep with my trees theme I placed the red and white stems throughout the tree. I love how they give the tree another layer of dimension.
Again, keeping with the rustic/woodland theme I used a buffalo check blanket for my tree skirt.
I may or may not have bought wrapping paper that matches as well.
Can’t be having a tacky Christmas morning right!
**thanks again to ftd for sending me the beautiful flowers. I was not compensated for writing this post.
