Farmhouse style is known for its coziness, which makes it a perfect match for the merry mood of the holiday season. You can easily look to country style to put a fresh spin on traditional Christmas decor. When it comes to decorating your farmhouse Christmas tree, you want it to look the part, and it all comes down to the textures and finishes of your ornaments and accessories. Here are four key elements for adding charm to your farmhouse Christmas tree.
One of the first elements you picture when thinking of farmhouse style is wood in all colors and textures, from light pine to darker reclaimed wood. Wood instantly says “farmhouse” or “country style,” and it’s the perfect material for your farmhouse Christmas tree.
We simply adore the look of wooden Christmas ornaments personalized with a photo, like these wooden ornaments from Photobarn. They come in a variety of shapes, like stars, snowflakes, hearts, Christmas trees and more. Plus, they can add a fun farmhouse feel to your tree. Photobarn also offers other custom ornaments, such as these blocks.
Burlap and Lace
Burlap has a rustic, down home flair, and it’s just the thing your farmhouse Christmas tree needs, along with a beautiful and frilly option like lace. Use a ribbon garland wrapped around your tree, or you can simply use it for DIY ornaments. Not that crafty? There are DIY ornament kits to save the day!
If you like the vintage look, try for some true vintage ornaments! There are lots of vintage ornaments still on the market, and the patinas they acquire as they age make them all the more charming.
Metal ornaments are another way to add farmhouse Christmas style to your tree. The distressed look of galvanized metal ornaments offers a quaint country look, and there’s a variety of options to choose from. As part of our Fa-La-La-La Farmhouse email series, we’ve got a fun Mason Jar DIY for you! If you haven’t already signed up to get these free printables, you can do that here.
DIY Farmhouse Mason Jar Ornament
