Neutral, Rustic, Glam Christmas Tree

Hey Friends!! Happy Friday to you all!!

I’m so glad we have reached the end of this week!  Today, just happens to be my birthday & we are heading to Chicago for the weekend to do some celebrating!! We are also planning on doing some Christmas shopping! I’m so excited! Many people think that because I’m from Illinois, that I must go to Chicago all the time, but that really isn’t the case! I’ve only been to Chicago TWICE in my entire life! 🙂 It’s actually a good 6 hour drive from where we are at in Southern Illinois! And although I’m not really looking forward to the long drive, I am looking forward to some time alone with my husband this weekend!

Do you have anything fun planned?

I thought I’d finish out the week by sharing some photos of our Christmas tree! Is that okay with y’all? I’ve mentioned several times, that we got a new tree this year. We purchased it at Target & I’m absolutely IN LOVE!! Because we got a new tree, I was inspired to switch things up a bit with our decor. If you have been following this blog for a while, you know that my living room is decorated in blues & usually, I decorate my tree to coordinate. This year however, I decided to take a more neutral approach. I’ve incorporated some rustic elements, but also included some feminine touches with some added sparkle. I just love when those two looks collide!

So, without further ado…here is our Neutral, Rustic/Glam Christmas Tree.

I did purchase a few new ornaments for the tree this year, most of which came from Hobby Lobby! I scored these little beauties when they had all of their Christmas ornaments 50% off! I love the contrast of the sparkly ornaments against the rustic burlap garland!

The ornaments you see below were left-over from last year’s tree. The wooden ornaments were a gift from my mom & the icicle & snowflake ornaments were just some inexpensive add-ons from Walmart!

We always have to take out our recliner to make room for our tree every year, but I always like to bring in the rocking chair from Griffin’s nursery to fill in the little spot by our front door. This year, I bought a cream colored throw from TJ Maxx to add to the chair & also a festive snowflake pillow that I purchased at Target.

To add some sentiment to our tree, I whipped up these Mod Podge Photo Ornaments last year. The tree has several little snapshots from Christmases past of the boys. I just LOVE them! I plan to add more each year. The larger snowflake ornament is from Hobby Lobby & the pinecones, from Walmart.

Here is a closer look of my snowflake pillow. I love that its neutral, but the beaded embellishments add that little bit of glam that I was looking for. To add to the rustic look, I printed off this chalkboard printable from Nest of Posies & put it in a wooden frame that I got from Hobby Lobby. Even though the frame is “new”, it has that aged, old wood look, and really captures that rustic feel!

And last, but not least, I love the new ruffle tree skirt that I made this year! If you missed that post, you can check it out HERE. I even included a video tutorial! 🙂

So that takes care of our Christmas Tree decor for this year! I have a couple more trees that I’ve decorated throughout the house. If I get around to posting a holiday home tour, I’ll be sharing those too! Fingers crossed!! 🙂

  1. Beautifully done!

  2. Your tree looks lovely, Tonya! It IS a lovely tree. We get a North Carolina Frasier fir every year, but sometimes I wonder if it wouldn’t make life much simpler to have an artificial tree. For sure it’s easier to hang ornaments on an artificial one! Your tree skirt (loved seeing you on video) is just right for your tree. And I really love the rocker there beside the tree!

    Happy, happy birthday! Enjoy your time in the city!!

  3. Have fun in Chicago, we just went last August for my second time ever and we went without the kids. Loved it! I am tempted to take the kids on a trip there this summer. We’ll see. I LOVE your tree! I really love the tree skirt, too.

  4. Oh Tonya, I love this tree! What a nice mix of rustic and chic. Perfect! And love the tree skirt!! 🙂

  5. This is darling! I love your rustic Christmas tree!

  7. Your tree is oh so pretty. 🙂

  8. What a beautiful tree, my favourite part is the picture ornaments

  9. I’ve been looking for a cute burlap tree skirt. Where did you find yours? Love your tree!

  10. So pretty!! I love all the snowflakes and the mix of burlap and sparkles is just right! I am just putting the finishing touches on the living room and then I think this girl is out of ideas!! and then to try and get some decent shots…yours are great! Have a great week end have a wonderful birthday week end!

  11. Awesome job Tonya! You have a beautiful home! Keeping my fingers crossed for a Christmas home tour 😉 Happy belated birthday 🙂

  12. Wow! What a gorgeous tree! You did an amazing job decorating.

    My tree is a product of my kids decorating. I think it’s beautiful because of that AND because i didn’t have to do it. LOL

    Thanks for sharing your lovely home! Happy Holidays!

  14. What a beautiful tree! I was wondering what width of ribbon and burlap you used to avoid buying loads for trial and error?

    • Usually when I plan on trying something new I try to have atleast 2 different ideas to use it, like the burlap and ribbon. To either put it on the Christmas tree or make bows to put either on my wreaths or thru the house. I like for all my bows to be all the same. I hope this has helped you some, I don’t know how many yards. Maybe someone else can help us on that. Merry Christmas, Nancy
