So, I finally finally “finished” my Rustic Glam Christmas tree. I say “finished” because there are still some things I’d like to add to it, but I’ll reveal those next year maybe. 🙂 I’ve had this tree up and been working on it since early November. I work sloooow, remember?? (It’s a 9-foot unlit tree from Hobby Lobby. I like to string my own lights, so that when one set burns out I don’t spend hours cutting lights off the tree.)
My theme from the beginning was rustic glam. I wanted equal parts glitter and glam and woodsy. And I wanted to make or find cheap decorations as much as possible. I think I will buy some more ornaments after Christmas when everything is 75%-90% off. But until then, I present to you … my 2012 tree!
These sliced up logs are probably my favorite ornament. Why? Because they were free! I grabbed a wooden log from my parents’ house back at Thanksgiving and just sliced them up into 1-inch thick pieces with my miter saw. And then I drilled a hole in them and strung them up with some jute. Easy peasy and so rustic!
I grabbed a box of glittery snowflakes from Walmart the other night. Just $3 for 20 ornaments. I love me some cheap glitter snowflakes!
I bought a couple of these Noel ornaments at Hobby Lobby. They seemed to fit with my tree theme. I grabbed the red berries from Hobby Lobby and love the pop of color. And I wrapped burlap ribbon around the tree (50% off at Hobby Lobby … woohoo!).
I already shared about my book paper-covered ornaments HERE. And then I added some glittery icicles and I had this old rustic skiing ornament on my other tree forever. It seemed right at home on my new tree.
