It’s Day 10 – Our Christmas Tree! The last day of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop for me: A farmhouse tree all ready for Christmas! With the decision that I was actually going to put up a tree this year there were purchases to make and a whole bunch of things to make! I wanted my xmas tree to be all about farmhouse and all DIY because it just wouldn’t be right for Grandma’s House otherwise.

It’s Day 10 – Our Christmas Tree!


I made ornaments earlier this month and, as far as purchases, I actually made very few. The biggest purchase was, of course, my adorable little tree that came with lights and everything. I also purchased mason jar lids with snow flake cut outs, burlap ribbon, red ribbon and clothes pins to make my ornaments out of.

All in I spent less than $100 for ALL of my holiday decorating starting literally from scratch.

I did some “spring” (fall) cleaning of my living room and a bunch of rearranging. I knew I wanted to get my tree off the floor and my blanket box (formerly my Grandma’s cellar box for wintering carrots) seemed the perfect place.

I moved my corner hutch to another place in my home and the blanket box got tucked in the corner. Over it I laid a piece of plywood to set my tree on. Over that I covered it all with plaid blankets.

My homemade ornaments filled my tree up entirely and that was a major “phew!” for me because I wasn’t sure if I would have enough!

Of course, at that point, it was missing the truly final touch. A tree topper.

After having made lots of regular bows and burlap angels at this point I did a few searches on google for ideas and this was what I came up with.

I love it because it actually reminds me of a poinsettia flower.

I think it set the top of my tree off just perfect!

With that, my farmhouse tree and living room was complete. I can’t believe I actually was going to forgo decorating or even having a tree this year.

I am so glad I did this, it makes me feel happy every time I walk into the room which is every day!

    I’m so glad you decided to have a tree, it just makes you smile every time you go in the room. It’s adorable, I love the homemade ornaments and the bow on top!

      Thanks so much Jenny and me too! It just brought so much happy and cozy to my living room I can’t believe I was considering skipping it!

    Your little tree is so cute! I love how you put it off the ground in the corner. I had to do that when my son was little or we would have had to skip the tree. And, you’re right, its so much better not to skip the tree!
