christmas tree decor
Rustic Christmas Tree decorations bring a magical, homey feel to the holiday season. They are inspired by nature, and feature natural materials such as pine cones, twigs, berries, and other woodland elements. From traditional, to modern, to whimsical, to farmhouse, there are so many styles of rustic Christmas tree decorations to choose from.
For a rustic Christmas tree you can decorate with natural elements: – Warm lights to illuminate the tree – large pinecones (scented and unscented) – woodland and animal-themed ornaments (I have both mercury and wood) – vintage lace or burlap ribbon – a rattan or wood star topper – faux berry twigs in either red or a neutral color – Add a rustic Christmas tree skirt that’s burlap, jute, knitted, or plaid
For a more traditional rustic look, choose a real tree with branches that have a natural look and feel. Choose a fir, pine, or spruce tree for the best effect. It is important to make sure that the tree is fresh, so it looks and smells great. If you’re looking for a convenient way to bring the holiday cheer into your home, a realistic looking faux tree is a great option.
Begin with strings of twinkling lights. Next, add ornaments – rustic ornaments made from wood, metal, and burlap can be perfect for a rustic Christmas tree. Hang them in different sizes and shapes, and layer on the sparkle with glass ornaments. Choose items that reflect a rustic style like woodsy ornaments, burlap ribbon, twigs and red berries. Adorn the bottom with a rustic Christmas tree skirt made from cozy materials.
To add a special touch to your rustic Christmas tree, hang a few pieces of handmade art such as handmade felt ornaments, a wooden ornament, or a handmade banner. This will give the tree a unique and personal touch. Finally, don’t forget to add a few presents underneath the tree for that special wow factor.
Last step is to ejoy your tree! Light the candles and turn on the Christmas lights. Enjoy the beauty of the tree and the atmosphere it creates! Are you decorating with a rustic or woodland theme this Christmas? Make sure to tag me on Instagram @ninahendrickhome and share!
