Rustic Christmas Tree
A few months ago I made a bet with my husband before Christmas and I told him that I would not buy any more decorations for this Christmas season, so I didn’t. You can see [HERE] how I made rustic Christmas decorations for free using items from around the house.
The difficulty of decorating with the same decor was a challenge. I kept seeing 100% of what I did last year so I had to step away from social media and let my juices start to work.
I’m happy to say using all the same Christmas Tree Decorations as I did last year, the tree looked similar but has a completely different feel to it.
Shall we take a look and see?

The Christmas Tree
We started with our Chalk Painted tree [HERE]. We added a few larger bulb lights [HERE] and then got to work. Last year I had a lot of ribbon on my tree. You can look at last years tree [HERE]. This year I wanted to work the ribbon in but not be seen. It’s acting as a filler this year. We (My husband and I) got to work and started putting the ribbon in from the center out.
TIP: If your tree has lost some of its branches and is thinning out, go get one of these [HERE] to fill it back up again!
Once we got the ribbon in – I sorted all the ornaments I had. I knew I wanted something new this year, but as I had taken a bet to not buy Christmas Decor I opted to make a few DIY Christmas Ornaments [HERE]. These turned out AMAZING. I just keep staring at them. I had a dream (which is what normally happens) and I saw these starbursts in my Dream. We had to go through a few different changes to get it to happen but it worked. If you prefer a more traditional DIY Christmas ornament then take a look at these [HERE].
The Christmas Ornaments
I always start with the largest Christmas ornaments and put those all over the tree. Then as I get to the smaller ones I put those in the areas I need more ornaments. My trees always seem to have holes in them.

So the Ornaments I made this year were perfect spot fillers [HERE]. Can you spot it in the picture below?
Most of the decorations I’ve gotten over the years were from Walmart or Hobby Lobby. I tried to think of ornaments that if we were living in the woods we could have made ourselves out of household items. Hence that is how I got my rustic Christmas tree. Take a look at the ornaments below and tell me what you think.
If you don’t like the diy painted Christmas Tree then take a look at the one I did 3 years ago [HERE].
