I am excited to share our 2023 family tree with you all! Typically, I don’t share our family ornament tree on the blog as there isn’t as much detail that goes into this one. I save a majority of the room on this tree for all of our family’s ornaments from throughout the years. It has always been a tradition of mine to get the kiddos a new ornament each year. Also, if we travel somewhere special we like to bring home an ornament as a souvenir for our tree. Pretty soon, I am going to need a bigger tree just to be able to put all of the ornaments on! Let me tell ya…they are adding up! It makes me happy to see all of the ornaments up on the tree and it is so fun watching the kids hang them year after year. However, the more ornaments also means the kids are getting older and growing up too fast on me! I’m sure a lot of you can relate! With that, I just try to live in the moment and enjoy each and everyday with them!
I start this tree off just like I do all of my other trees I decorate. I used a neutral colored deco mesh for this tree. You can see exactly how I do this step RIGHT HERE!
Next, I add in my picks throughout my tree. I found these fun picks at Walmart and thought they were perfect for our family tree!
How fun are these bright colors!? I can’t wait to craft with these gorgeous pine cones!
Next up is the ornaments! Each year when picking out the kids’ ornaments I like to find something that resonates with each of them. It’s so fun to look back over the years at all of their ornaments! Such a fun tradition I hope they will carry on with their kiddos! If not, Grandma to the rescue! HaHa!
The time has come for another Christmas tree reveal! I love doing this so much! It’s like therapy to me! HaHa! This years tree doesn’t have a specific “color scheme” per say but all the colors come together so well and it turned out so beautiful!
I always start with a blank canvas when I am decorating a tree for the next holiday/season. I found this flocked tree at Walmart for $89 a few years back and it works perfect for my seasonal tree I keep up year round!
Next, I use deco mesh or burlap depending on my theme for my tree. This year I went with a sparkly gold and white mesh. I found the mesh as well as these gorgeous picks at Hobby Lobby. How fun are these!?
Now it’s time to get the mesh on the tree. See my quick and easy hack for this RIGHT HERE!!! Easy enough, right?
Now that that part is done, it’s time to start adding your ornaments, picks, bows, and whatever else you like to decorate your tree with! I have another quick hack for adding deco mesh bows to your tree. You can see that hack RIGHT HERE!!! Who knew deco mesh could be so fun, right? To be honest, I used to despise mesh…but now, I have to say, I am a fan!
I continued to do the mesh bows as needed to fill in wholes in my tree. I used a different color of mesh then the original color I used on the tree and I am loving the contrast!
Now, I simply continues filling in the tree with my different picks and ornaments.
The ornaments I used came from Hobby Lobby as well. How gorgeous are they?!
For the tree topper I used the cute “season’s greetings” sign from my shop! It added the perfect touch!
Isn’t it beautiful? What’s your favorite part? I can’t wait to hear your feedback!
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!
Happy holidays!!! I am so excited to share with you my Christmas tree for this year! I went away from the traditional red and green theme and decided to go with a navy theme! I absolutely love how it turned out! As soon as I got the deco mesh on, I knew it I loved it!
Typically, we buy a real tree so I am not able to put our tree up as early as I would like…but this year I decided to try something different! I happened to be looking through the Black Friday deals at Wal-mart and found this beautiful tree for ONLY $69. So, I bit the bullet and bought an artificial, flocked tree. It took my family awhile to get used to it as we have always had the real tree and the awesome Christmas smell that goes along with that but they adjusted well!
I knew I wanted to have some navy accents in my holiday decor this year so when I found this mesh at Hobby Lobby I grabbed a couple rolls. I only used one roll on my tree as I only decorated the front side but if you were to decorate the full tree you would need two.
To apply the mesh, I simply folded the mesh in half and used the branches of the tree to secure the mesh as shown. I did this about every 12 inches starting at the top.
Next, I strung some garland on the tree. This also came from Hobby Lobby. It has bells and the faux cotton pods on jute twine. After that I began filling in the tree with ornaments and picks. These all came from Wal-mart and Hobby Lobby.
I found a 4 pack of the navy, oversized, colored ball ornaments at Hobby Lobby and new they would go perfectly with the mesh I used. I simply placed them throughout the tree where there was a bare spot and they finished off the look perfectly!
Now for the tree topper! Is this not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen! I knew I had to have this as soon as I saw it at Wal-mart! It’s not your traditional tree topper and that is exactly why I love it so much!
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!
