Rustic Buffalo Check Christmas Decor
In years past, I’ve decorated my tree in color schemes. When I was in college I was all about a white tree with bright peacock inspired colors. Then when my husband and I bought our first house, I went all out on decorating our white tree with pastels colored ornaments. A few years back I shared our very metallic Christmas tree decked out with bronzes, coppers, golds and silvers.
This year I’m all about deep reds and rustic touches. I even grew up a bit and finally bought myself an actual tree skirt. No more fluffing up an old blanket underneath the tree to look like a skirt. I’ve got the real thing now! I’m just hoping I don’t change my tastes too much by next year.
Our tree is a fake one that we’ve had for 3 years now, and it has been broken since the first season. I have two creatures that live in my house that think a Christmas tree is this amazing creation that only comes out once a year, so it must be climbed, eaten and knocked over as much as possible in that short time. Needless to say this fatty broke off a bottom branch the very first year I had it out.
Luckily I can just hide that part by tucking it against the wall. No one has wised up to it yet, so it will just be our little secret ok?
I don’t have a ton of ornaments, just your regular run of the mill ball ornaments, a few we’ve gotten as presents over the years, and some I’ve made. Like these burned wood slice ornaments.
Or these pine cone ornaments
Last year I put ribbon on our tree for the very first time and loved it. This year I decided to do the same, but used a pretty and popular buffalo check ribbon instead. I also tucked in some berry picks here and there to fill out the tree a little more.
And I just couldn’t help but share a little peak of my Christmas mantel too. It’s similar to last year, but I did manage to change it up a bit.
I’m just in love with the pine garland and how I managed to make it look like it’s just draped there.
The deer are probably my favorite part, but I think they look great with the buffalo plaid trees too.
How are you decorating your tree for Christmas?
Love this? Pin it for later!
