I am so excited to finally show you all my blush Christmas tree! This tree may just be my favorite one to date! I am loving how it came together! Below are pictures for some of the items I used on my tree. Almost everything is from Hobby Lobby!
This video will show you how I always start with decorating my tree as well as talking about my favorite go to artificial flocked tree! Click HERE to watch the video!
Once I have my mesh on the tree it’s time to start added the garlands, ornaments, picks and signs!
The ornament below we made live on Facebook and you can see that video HERE! Didn’t it turn out so cute!?
Gorgeous tree topper and picks from Hobby Lobby!
Well, what do you think? Blush is definitely a popular color right now and I’m so glad I decided to go with this color scheme! So stinkin’ cute!
Our tree this year is definitely one of of my favorites we have ever had. As many of you know, we get a real tree every year. Now, usually we have our tree up way before now, but we didn’t have fresh trees available to us until this week. So you better bet we were one of the first people to get one when they finally did show up! Haha!
This year our tree looks a little different than usual. Each year I get my kiddos a new ornament for the tree. This year instead of them putting their ornaments on our main tree in our family room we decided they would put their ornaments on their little trees in their bedrooms. So that meant that I got the main tree all to myself and of course I had to write about it! Now, don’t get me wrong, I love seeing all of the kids’ ornaments hanging on our main tree but as you can imagine we are getting quite the collection of ornaments so they decided they are just gonna pick a few of their favorites to add to the trees in their rooms.
So…onto our main tree. I simply started off by using this beautiful deco mesh that I found at Hobby Lobby. I started at the top and worked my way down to the bottom just tucking and twisting the deco mesh until I got it the way I wanted it.
Yes, I know…it doesn’t look like anything special at this point…But, just wait!
Next, I added the lights. I use LED lights that can change from white to multi-colored depending what my theme is each year.
Now, its time to fill in the holes and make the tree look full. I like to use a variety of different picks and ornaments. The ones I used this year I found at Hobby Lobby and Walmart. I also used this Dollar Tree Truck that I made over to fill the big hole in the front of the tree. You can find the blog post with on how I created the truck HERE!
Next, I just continued filling in the tree with my picks.
I also added this “Farmhouse Greetings” ornament that I made on a live. You can find that video HERE.
And to finish the tree off we added our star! I found this at Wal-mart a few years back.
I absolutely LOVE how our tree turned out this year!
*Paint-I used Waverly chalk paint “Celery”, Apple Barrel “Tuscan Red”, “Black”, and “Pewter Gray”.
*Embellishments of your choice
Now, don’t get me wrong, this little truck is cute as it is but just wait until you see it after I get done with it!
To start off I removed the tree from the back of the truck. Next, I painted the body of the truck with my “tuscan red” paint.
Next, I painted my tires with my black paint and the fenders with my “celery” paint.
Once those were dry, I took my gray and added some highlight color to the tires. I also, took my “celery” color and added some highlights to the body of the truck.
Next, I added a little mini ornament embellishment on the door of the truck. I found these in the Christmas section at Wal-mart.
To finish off the truck, I used a Christmas pick to replace the tree that was in the back of the truck. I found my pick at Wal-mart. I simply cut down the stem and hot glued the top of the pick to the back of the truck.
Well, what do you think? Quite the transformation, right? I just love how it turned out!
Walmart definitely hit it out of the park when it comes to their 2020 Christmas goods! I wanted to share a sneak peek of some of my favorite items I spotted the other day when I was there. You better bet I stocked up on lots of these and more than likely be going back for more!
First off, I’m gonna start with their holiday ribbon! So stinkin’ cute you guys! My new favorite is definitely the sage green!
If you are a fan of gnomes, Walmart has got the cutest ones! I wanted to buy them all!
There are seriously so many different styles of decor so your sure to find the one that fits you best! Its so exciting to see the different color schemes and styles from year to year.
I’m a sucker for some cute greens. They have cutest wreaths, swags, and little decorative trees. These go great with any Christmas/Winter decor.
These mini ornaments make the cutest little embellishments on any project so I always stock up on these! Also, if your kiddos like to have their own mini tree in their bedroom these work perfectly for that as well.
Is this not the cutest little tree stand/collar for a little mini tree!
These cute little Christmas picks were calling my name! I like to use these as fillers in my tree and use them a lot as embellishments on projects also.
As always they have a ton of gift bags to choose from. Not only to I use these for gifts but I also craft with these a lot! In my eyes you can never have to many. A cute gift bag and some mod podge can do wonders. HaHa
I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek and find some inspiration for the holiday season.
I did this craft live on my Facebook page and thought it was to cute not to put on the blog! So, just in cased you missed it live you can see it here!
Isn’t this just the cutest? I know a lot of people don’t like to decorate with the traditional reds and greens for Christmas so I thought this would be great for those who prefer the more rustic, farmhouse look!
