This year’s Christmas tree looks a little different from year’s past. Check out how I decorated this flocked tabletop Christmas tree in black and white and galvanized metal.

For this year’s tree, I decided to change things up drastically! I have always wanted a flocked Christmas tree, so this year I took the plunge. I stuck with the same size tree as I had last year, because it really fits so well in this spot in our living room.
This tree was very inexpensive at $27 from Walmart! It is well flocked, and pre-lit, so I don’t have to worry about fussing with lights. Plus, as far as artificial trees go, this one is pretty full! The only thing I don’t like is how long the very top branch is, so I folded it in half to place the star topper.
I did a poll over on my Instagram stories a few days ago, asking what ribbon I should use on the tree. It was between this black and white herringbone and a white faux fur ribbon. Overwhelmingly you suggested the herringbone, and you couldn’t be more right! It’s a nice subtle touch!
My favorite part of this black and white Christmas tree are these hand-lettered ornaments. I will be sharing the tutorial over on my other blog this Friday. Would you believe they were made with my hand lettering and a Cricut?
I was pleasantly surprised to find such a plethora of galvanized metal ornaments at Hobby Lobby when I was out trying to gather ideas. These snowflake ornaments are a great touch for the black and white tree. They had many others as well, but some were just a bit too country for this tree. I did end up removing the blue gingham ribbon that came on these snowflake ornaments.
Another find that helped solidify the theme for this year’s black, white and galvanized metal tree, were these metal look “joy” ball ornaments from Target. They had black “merry” ones too, as well as red and white. Believe it or not, these suckers are HEAVY! A similar set is available on Amazon too.
The finishing touch to this black and white Christmas tree decor is the galvanized metal tree collar. I scored this at Hobby Lobby for cheap! It is just slightly smaller than the feet of the tree are wide, but you can’t tell! The feet are actually tucked under the blanket, with the collar resting on top for a finished look. This hammered black metal one on Amazon is a great idea for a full-size tree! It even comes in galvanized.
And I couldn’t help but include my cute little camper from last year under the tree! Sure it’s not black and white, but she sure blends in nicely against the black, white and galvanized metal. It also looks great with this years gift wrap of white paper and black hand lettering!
