Decorating an earthy Christmas tree can be very fun and rewarding. There is such a wide variety of earthy ornaments available that you are sure to find something that matches your decorating style and the look you are trying to achieve within your home. You can choose from an array of rustic accessories including pine cones, berries, dry bark, popcorn and candy canes. You can complement these rustic items with earthy window decorations and holiday themed rugs. This article will provide some useful information about how to create your own rustic Christmas tree.
One easy way to decorate your tree is to select natural ornaments that have a rustic look. For example, you can make a tree out of pine cones. These can be decorated with glitter or dried flowers to create a sparkly and cheery look. Or, if you would like to use pine cones as part of your rustic Christmas decoration, you can simply paint each one a different color or have them stained. These make an excellent backdrop for your holiday table decorations or you can place pine cones in a wreath around your front door for a cheery look. Remember that pine cones are a great accent to your earthy theme and they can be used on their own or mixed with other rustic accessories to give your tree a more three-dimensional effect.
If you prefer to use actual real ornaments for your tree, then it is important that you know how to properly hang them. Some people prefer to place an individual wreath on their tree’s branches. These wreaths can easily be made using items you likely already have in your home. For example, you can use dried fruit, dried flowers or pine cones to make your own homemade rustic wreath.
You can also decorate your tree with small pieces of rustic furniture. Small tables and chairs can be purchased at any retail store and decorated for just the cost of the tree. Look for beautiful chairs that have open arms so that they are comfortable for gathering around. If you don’t want to spend money on wreaths or tables, then you can always find smaller-sized chairs that will fill the same purpose. Just remember to leave room around the tree for the wreath or table decorations.
You can also layer smaller branches and twigs on top of one another to create great texture and height. You can add some greenery to the mix by painting leaves onto branches or by inserting tiny beads or other small accessories into decorative holes you have to cut into your branches. This look is great on trees that are very tall. It will add height without taking away from the main theme that you are going for. It makes a great transition from heavy, elegant to something more down-to-earth.
For an earthy Christmas tree, you can also choose to use natural garlands and wreaths for your tree. These can be wrapped around smaller branches to give a layered effect. Use garland and wreaths in the same way you decorate your tree, layer them with small accessories and accents, and then attach a colorful ribbon to hold everything together.
You can also layer fresh herbs or vegetables for a great autumnal themed look. If you like to grow your own herbs, then this is a great option for your holiday tree. You can layer green herbs with browned onions, sprinkles, nuts, and drizzles. This is a great way to use your entire garden and save money at the same time.
Decorate your tree for the holidays with seasonal elements. Use your imagination and see how you can incorporate things from each season into your tree decor. Think about all the things that you would love to see at this time of year. For instance, what Christmas songs do you want to hear? What desserts do you crave to eat? Find ways to bring all these elements together for your tree and it will be a much more meaningful addition to your home throughout the whole year.
