Today I reveal my Christmas tree and my theme for this year’s decorating! Right after Thanksgiving, I got to work decorating for the Christmas season and I was especially excited for the tree. This is because I got a taller and skinnier artificial tree secondhand after last season. It also came with fancy lights that sparkle and fade! The theme for this year’s Christmas decorations is White Winter Woodland. I teamed up with 50 other bloggers to share our Christmas trees altogether, so for more inspiration scroll to the bottom of this page.

Using primarily white and silver decorations, I adorned our tree with a variety of textures. The new tree has very realistic branches and I absolutely love it!

One thing you might notice right away is the large white hydrangea blooms. I had leftover hydrangeas from the wreath I made in the fall, so I spray painted them to add to the tree.

I clipped the stems long and poked holes in a large piece of cardboard. Then I stuck the stems through and hoisted the cardboard up on cement blocks.

After coating with Rust-Oleum 2X gloss white spray paint (you could do this using any color) I also sprinkled on some glitter. The big beautiful blooms take up a lot of visual space on the tree and provide an amazing effect!

For gifts this year, I chose a rustic look with brown paper wrapping, jute twine, and wooden gift tags. I wanted the presents to go with my White Winter Woodland theme and I think it looks so pretty when the gift wrap goes well with the tree.

Decorating for Christmas with turquoise being my main living room color was difficult. I chose natural elements and neutral colors to play it safe, but I am contemplating adding hints of red throughout my house for when I reveal the whole home tour next week. One thing I added to pull in the turquoise a little bit is this pillow cover made from an old sweater.

It says “Merry and Bright” with the “and” being turquoise. I hand lettered this pillow using these Jacquard paints which are actually washable when used on fabric. I highly recommend them!

You can see I found a home for the “Joy” birch wood sign I created a couple weeks ago. I have so much more to show off my decorating, but it will have to wait for next week! Now, watch the step-by-step process as I explain how I decorated my tree!

There is nothing as magical as the kids gathered around the Christmas tree all lit up at night…

    What a lovely Christmas tree. Your dried flowers are the perfect touch.
    You are right. There is nothing like kids in front of a Christmas tree. Your kids are adorable.

    They hydrangeas on your tree are a wonderful idea. They really bring the tree together. Such a pretty picture of your tree with the little ones gathered in front of it.

    I really like the neutral/white elements in the tree, and you’re right, the presents do go with the theme! We wrap our presents pretty similarly, I’m just not as on the ball 🙂

      This is the first time I’ve done presents in a more neutral color scheme and I love it! It makes the tree more the focus.

    OMG what a great idea to spray paint the leftover hydrangeas. Looks so pretty. . I can see why you choose natural colors as oppose to turquoise.Happy Holidays

    What a beautiful tree! I am loving the Hydrangeas! They finish it off perfectly.

    I LOVE that you painted hydrangeas. They look great and really stand up against the green of the tree.
