A Country Christmas Tree

This unique tree captures the comfort of a rustic theme while still maintaining the elegance of a classic Christmas. The mix of oversized and mini glass balls give the tree the illusion of being fuller. Mixing in glitter as well as silver among the white ornaments adds a bit of sparkle to the tree. Rustic elements are pulled in with the burlap ribbon, yarn star, cotton balls, and pine cones.

This is the first year that we decorated a themed tree. Every Christmas prior, we decorated the tree with handmade childhood ornaments, collectable snowmen and santas, candy canes, etc. I was afraid that I would miss seeing these traditional ornaments on the tree this year, but we still found a way to add personal touches to the tree! Making wood-slice ornaments painted with our family initial was a fun family activity and added the character our themed tree lacked.
