Rustic Buffalo Check Christmas Decor

Sharing with your friends!

The rustic buffalo check Christmas decor is crazy popular this year. See how I used it in my home for my Christmas tree and mantel.

It’s the very last day of the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop. Can you believe it? I’ve shared so many fun Christmas inspired projects and recipes, like these hand lettered coffee mugs and low carb snickerdoodles. Plus, there’s 37 other bloggers that have also all shared 12 projects and recipes. THAT is a LOT of inspiration! If you missed any of the previous days, check them out by clicking any of the links below:

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

But my favorites are the ones I’ve gotten from participating in the annual blogger Ornament Exchange. I got this one from this years exchange with Christene from Keys to Inspiration.

And this sweet little dove from last year’s exchange with Maureen from Red Cottage ChroniclesShe also gave me the cutest Moose ornament (she’s from Canada) and it fits in perfectly on my tree!

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!

I love any type of plaid and your buffalo check decor is perfect. I especially love the plaid wooden tree and the skis on the mantel.
