Simple and Vintage Christmas Tree Decor

| |

Hello friends, it’s Day 5 of our 5 Days of Christmas Inspiration. I’ve joined 5 of my blogger friends to share lots of holiday ideas with you this week. Today, is all about Christmas trees and tree decorating ideas and I want to share some simple and vintage Christmas tree decor ideas.

We all partnered with King of Christmas and received a beautiful tree of our choice.

I have wanted a Noble Fir Christmas tree for quite a while, and was so excited this was one of the options for my tree from King of Christmas.

King of Christmas 7′ Noble Fir Tree

I love the simplicity of this tree. It looks so beautiful even without decorations, which was really the idea I was going for.

The white lights on the tree look so magical at night, and you don’t even need any decor on the tree.

I put the tree in the corner of my master bedroom and I’m loving it there!

And guess what??? It’s on major sale right now until Sunday!

I did add a few of the handmade neutral decorations that I shared on Day 3 of our 5 Days of Holiday Inspiration.

However, when my vintage tree goes up in the living room, those decorations will be going on that tree, and I plan to leave this beautiful Noble Fir tree, free of ornaments.

For the tree skirt, I used an ivory velvet window curtain panel I bought at a thrift store for $2.00.

I really like to get a bit creative with my tree skirts instead of using traditional ones.

Like this needlepoint rug I use under the rag tree I put up in my guest bedroom.

The cream color vintage tree I use in my living room isn’t very tall, so I put it in an old planter box that has legs. This raises my tree to just the perfect height to put under my staircase.

So, for this tree, I don’t even use a tree skirt.

I have used a vintage tablecloth, a cowhide rug and even just a piece of beautiful fabric that goes with my decor for tree skirts. These are a few other creative and unusual ways to make a tree skirt.

But, if you’re looking for a tree skirt, King of Christmas has this beautiful faux fur skirt.

As I mentioned, I have a vintage white tree in my living room. The truth is, it’s so old it’s actually cream color now.

Which, is actually perfect as far as I’m concerned!

My vintage ornaments look beautiful on this old and discolored tree.

It’s so old, that it looses tons of needles every year when I move it into the house.

I don’t even take it apart anymore. I display it in an old planter box that has wheels, so after Christmas, I cover it with a large sheet and roll it into the garage.

vintage ornament ideas

I love using unique vintage things for ornaments on my tree.

Very few of my ornaments are the same, because of lot of my “ornaments” are different things I have collected here and there.

Some of my favorites are the vintage silver Shiny Bright Christmas balls, and vintage flash cards.

I also have some unique ornaments made from shards of vintage mirror.

I don’t really love traditional tree toppers, so I typically put a lot of cotton stalks, stems of tallowberries, white stems/sticks, dried hydrangeas, etc.

It looks a little wild and a bit unconventional, but I love it because its dramatic and unusual.

handmade ornament ideas

I shared some of these ornaments on Day 3 or our 5 Days of Holiday Inspiration.

These are a few handmade ornaments I made this year and a few I made years ago, but still love them.

Creating a French Country Christmas Tree for my One Room Challenge space has been so much fun. The blue and white theme of the room set the tone for the tree and the gift wrapping.

Rustic Christmas trees don’t have to be difficult to create. This holiday season, we’ve decided to create a rustic look using pine cones for ornaments, upcycled wooden bead garland, and a pallet wood crate to hold the tree. Let’s take a look at these simple rustic Christmas decorations on our tree!
