I am so honored to have been asked to participate in the 4th Annual My Home Style blog hop: Christmas Tree Edition this year!
CREATIVE CHRISTMAS TREE IDEAS
Typically, as soon as Thanksgiving is over, I race to get our Christmas tree and all the decor up. However, this year due to joining in on this fun blog hop, I was excited to put our tree up a little bit earlier.
I love Christmas time and decorating the tree is one of my and my kid’s favorite things to do during the holidays. I am excited to share with you how I brought together my Modern Colorful Christmas Tree with white lights.
A huge thank you to Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living for hosting this incredible blogger Christmas tree hop! And welcome if you are here from Carrie’s blog, Lovely Etc.. At the end of my post, you can see the entire week’s schedule of amazing trees. Be sure to take a moment and check them all out.
Make homemade colorful pom pom Christmas Ornaments
This year I decided to fully embrace my modern colorful loving self and incorporate some of those elements in our Christmas tree.
I started off my creating about 12-14 large sized colorful pom poms. I love using this Clover pom pom maker – it is a complete game changer!
I used various shades of coral, green and cream yarn for the pom poms and then just gently nestled them all throughout the tree.
Gold Fringe Garland
Quite possibly my favorite element of the Christmas tree this year was a new gold garland from Hobby Lobby (here). It keeps going out of stock, so I found these similar ones (Crate and Barrel and Amazon) .
I loved how it draped around the tree and then spread out like a golden icecicles. Also I loved that there is a considerable bit of sparkle and shine to the garland.
Year after year, I am always on the hunt for the perfect colored Christmas ball ornaments. I never can quite find the colors I am looking for. So I finally decided it was time to take matters into my own hands and create the colors I was looking for.
How to paint clear plastic ornaments
I bought clear plastic ornaments and using simple acrylic paint, gave each of them two or three coats of paint. It was great, between the pom pom making and the painted ornaments, I got through quite a few Netflix shows!
And each year, I get so excited as a try to decide which side of my tree skirt to use. I got this tree skirt from Minted a few years ago and love that it is reversible.
This diamond pattern is the side I use most often, but the other side is a gorgeous black and white cactus design – also so good!
I was really excited to incorporate color, pattern and texture into my modern Christmas tree this year and the finishing touch is always my silver glitter tree topper! Mine is from West Elm a few years ago, but here is a similar one for much cheaper.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I brought it all together!
