My Christmas Tree and Home Decor Tour
I absolutely love Christmas! If I had it my way, I would leave it up for about three months. So, of course, one Christmas tree was not enough for me. I love to have them in each room and decorate each one with a theme. I try to coordinate my home decor with my trees also.
Our classic tree that we do all our family decorations on is in the living room.
This year I redid the fireplace and painted the brick white. (don’t worry, there will be a blog post showing you how I did that soon!)
I wanted to keep the colors pretty neutral in there, so I went with gold, silver, creams, and whites.
My nativity scene painting fit in perfectly next to my big heart sign on my shelf. I honestly just set my different items out and play with them until I think it all fits together.
One rule to think of when you are decorating your shelves is to look at the height differences between your objects.
Be sure to stagger them so that they don’t all end up on the same level when you look at them.
You also want to try to stick with odd numbers if you can because it is just more appealing to the eye.
On the other side of the fireplace, we did more traditional Christmas decor with Christmas trees, little houses, and then some of my Santas!
If you love the Cheetah Santa, you can grab that tutorial here.
I love doing little paintings as well because you can tuck them into the trees like my little baby Jesus that I put on another one of my trees.
Paintings don’t just have to go on canvases! You can do them on pieces of wood burlap, small ornaments, or canvas.
For my gingerbread tree, I went all out because this is my favorite theme!
I’ve been collecting gingerbread houses and gingerbread men for years. I wanted to include my gingerbread house painting in the decor also.
This year we went to Disney, and I got a new Disney countdown calendar that goes underneath that painting! I love it!
For the tree, I found lots of fun things at Hobby Lobby!
In addition to the gingerbread ornaments I already had, I found some new ones as well.
I got some red and white gingham fabric balls and some little candies like peppermints that hang from the tree.
Then I found lots of fun little sprigs and sprays of red and white candies and whimsical stripes to stick out of the top of the tree.
I love the polka dot ribbon that I added to the tree, along with the red deco mesh. Both of those also came from Hobby Lobby.
In the basement, we decided to keep with a rustic/woodland theme and Buffalo plaid.
The largest tree with the gnomes is our buffalo plaid tree, where we also represent our favorite football teams, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Razorbacks!
I’ve been working on this one for a few years and found some fun little snowman at Walmart with the buffalo plaid earmuffs.
Always stay on the lookout for cute little things that you can put on your tree.
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that they don’t just have to be ornaments. You can tuck all kinds of cute stuff into your Christmas trees!
No rules! If it makes you happy, Do it!
We added a patio downstairs this year that we just closed in, so I had to have a little Christmas tree out there too.
I grabbed this tree for only $30 at Walmart! Be sure to check it out!
We did the woodland theme for this, and Corey helped me decorate this one! We got all of these cute ornaments at Walmart!
I grabbed another one of those $30 trees for my dining room.
This one makes me so happy because I finally found a small enough tree that I could put my little train set underneath!
I love everything magical and fun about this time of year, and I try to bring that into my house because it brings me so much joy!
I hope this gives you guys some ideas on what to do in your home, and you can find some fun ways to use your paintings in your home decor.
