Flocked Farmhouse Tree
Michaels has been having a terrific sale on their Christmas trees. I bought this flocked four foot tree that started out at $59 for $19! Can’t beat that price!
I love creating farmhouse decor for Gloria, but I don’t use much of it in my own home. This year, I decided that I wanted a small farmhouse tree for our upstairs landing.
I wanted to keep the ornaments and decor for it budget friendly, so I bought lots of the adornments from Dollar Tree and Walmart. These beads from Dollar Tree are great for garland.
I snipped each strand of beads and draped them around the tree. I used two packs of them for this four foot tree.
Walmart had some of the cutest ornaments for small trees that I’ve seen there before. I bought a package of these mini ornaments that each have fun Christmas sayings on them.
The package has a combination of black on white and white on black ornaments.
This “sleigh all day” ornament is my favorite from the set.
The plastic tobacco baskets are a great addition for the farmhouse look.
I wanted some oversized ornaments that will stand out on the tree, so for these Easy DIY Farmhouse Ornaments, I used my Cricut.
I made a second set of round disc ornaments using black, gray, and white plaid. I’ll be sharing the easy tutorial for these soon.
Lots of mini frosted pinecone ornaments go well with the snowy look of the tree.
I found lots of other word ornaments at Walmart along with the black and white canvas bows.
I made a simple ribbon loop bow to use as the topper. There are tons of tutorials for how to make these. I cut ribbon into various lengths and simply made loops with them and bunched them together until it was the size I wanted. Then I tied the loops together with a pipe cleaner and glued a long strip of ribbon for the tail to the back of the bow.
I found the metal Believe sign at Goodwill a couple of years ago. I cleaned it up and gave it a fresh coat of white paint.
I love the soft glow of the tree at night on the landing. We won’t be having overnight guests over for the holidays this year, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t be decorating all parts of our home.
