Vintage Inspired Farmhouse Christmas Tree-2017

Vintage Inspired Farmhouse Christmas Tree- From My Front Porch To Yours
Our Christmas tree changes every year and though it changes I always try to use some of the same elements. You can see each of our trees from 2010-2014 in this post. Our 2015 tree can be seen here and it is actually the same tree I have up in our master bedroom this year. Our tree last year was a new one. I had fun using all the bottle brush trees on it.

Here is our 2017 tree! I used the same tree from last year. I however did not realize how small the tree actually is. I was not happy with the height of the tree so I came up with a way to give it more height by placing it in a vintage style laundry basket. To conceal the bottom of the tree I just placed a blanket in the basket. Thankfully the tree just sits right on top snug as a bug.

The past few days it has been overcast, cold and rainy making for wonderful Christmas weather but terrible for trying to take pics. I used white lights as well as a few strands of red and green.

Speaking of Cracker Barrel ornaments I used my vintage inspired snowflake ornaments from a few years back that I also purchased at CB. I just love Cracker Barrel during the holidays! Don't you?
Vintage Inspired Farmhouse Christmas Tree-Dollar Store Deer Ornament- From My Front Porch To Yours
One of my favorite ornaments are my glittered jingle bell deer that came from the Dollar Store about three years ago I think it was. As you can see I also used tinsel on the tree again. I used it a few years back and thought it was the perfect touch for this years tree. Gives it that extra sparkle.
Vintage Inspired Farmhouse Christmas Tree-Tree Topper- Book Page Wreath- DIY- From My Front Porch To Yours
After 5 years our Capiz Shell star quit working. Instead of running out and spending money on a new star I decided to use my book page wreath that I made a few Christmases ago. It took forever to make but I sure do love it!

With the main tree lifted up off the ground I had room for a smaller tree as well. It is actually the top of a past tree that no longer was usable as a whole. So before you throw out your old artificial trees think about how the tops make a great mini trees!

Stick star came from the Dollar Spot at Target. I think that was last year but may have been the year before.

    Your pup is just so precious! :)

  5. Oh Pamela....the tree is so beautiful as it always is from year to year. Love seeing the rid arc ribbon again and what a great idea to use the top of a discarded tree!!! Oh my I could have had lots of small trees from the ones I discarded...Looking forward to your mantel...Have a Very Merry Weekend!!!

  6. This is so cute, Pamela. What a cozy space and miss Savannah has the right idea.
