On the 10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a farmhouse Christmas tree. For this day I thought I would give a few features of the Christmas trees I have around my house, both small and large. It is so easy to give your Tree a farmhouse touch this year.
We always have two large trees in our home and this is my tree. The other tree is the one that they children get to have creative license of. This year I am going with less is more. For the first few weeks I have wanted to keep this tree simple and focus on the beauty of the tree itself. While it may not be perfect, it is to our family.
We spent a day as a family scouring the forest to find the one just right for us. We pack all of us into our truck and meander through the forest, listening to Christmas music.
Here are a few of my fun Christmas tree projects I have done over the last little while.
You can check out my paper Christmas tree how-to here.
We like to head out and cut our own Christmas trees and we always grab a baby one for myself. I love to put it in my galvanized bucket. This is a quick way to add farmhouse charm to your tree.
I set the tree on my antique wash tubs which add tons of farmhouse flair.
Another way to add a great farmhouse touch is by wrapping your tree base with burlap. This is what I have done this year for mine. Apparently, my tree base is was to big for my galvanized tub. I love the way it looks though.
Once my tree is up and ready, it gives me a little more excitement that Christmas is on its way! I love to lay here at night, sip some tea and enjoy the glow of the lights.
“Oh, holy night, the stars are brightly shining, it is the night of our dear saviors birth. “
You have a great day!
