Welcome to the 3rd annual My Home Style Blog Hop - Christmas Tree Edition, hosted by Stephanie of Casa Watkins Living. If you're visiting from Houseful of Handmade, welcome! I'm the last stop on the tour, so you'll definitely want to start at Stephanie's bohemian tree and work your way through all the homes. You'll find links at the end of this post to all the other bloggers who are sharing their Christmas tree style. It's truly amazing how many different looks a Christmas tree can have, and each participating blogger matched their tree with their home decor! I'm pretty sure you'll be inspired.

I live in a traditional cape-cod that has tons of curb appeal. It may not sit out in the country, but I have a porch, shutters and I'm happy! I am drawn to the rustic, cozy and collected feel of a modern farmhouse and that is how I am decorating my home. While I have an attic full of Christmas decorations, I wanted to create a themed tree this year, filled with farmhouse-style ornaments.

Farmhouse Christmas Tree

Nearly every ornament on my farmhouse Christmas tree is handmade. I still have one tutorial to share next week but the rest are all up on the blog and I'll link to them throughout this post.

That farmhouse tree topper cost a whopping $3 to make! You can find the tutorial here.

I purchased a galvanized tree collar this year because it's quintessentially farmhouse! You'll notice that galvanized metal is continued in the decorations. I love the rustic charm! If you look closely at my tree, you'll spot the galvanized numbers, letters, hearts and signs.

I added three different ribbons to the tree. It started as an experiment, but I liked how they coordinated, so I used them all. The red ribbons were purchased at HomeGoods a couple years ago, and the black check ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

I love using plaids, gingham and buffalo check throughout the year, but it makes a home feel especially cozy during the holidays!

Rae Dunn Christmas ornaments

Collecting is one of my hobbies. From ironstone to blue transferware, crafting supplies like ribbon and buttons, and recently Rae Dunn pottery. I decided to make some Rae Dunn inspired ornaments for my tree this year. They were easy to make and I love how they look!

I used plain white ball ornaments except for this red one. This marbled metallic ornament was something I created for an ornament exchange...of course I had to make a few for me as well!

I may not have shiplap in my home...but I found a way to add it to my tree! I shared the tutorial for these dollar store shiplap ornaments earlier this week. They were so simple to make and I love the farmhouse charm of the jumbo ornaments!

My Silhouette machine was instrumental in helping me to create these professional-looking ornaments with little effort!

Every Christmas I make homemade gingerbread and this year decided to make some as decor. These sweet gingerbread houses adorn packages and hang on my farmhouse tree. It smells so spicy and good  😃

It's definitely feeling merry and festive over here, we even woke up to a rare south Texas snowfall! We are enjoying it while it lasts!

We've been mostly nice this year, and just a little bit I'm pretty confident Santa will make an appearance!

Our farmhouse Christmas tree is tucked into a corner between our living room and our recently renovated sunroom, so we can enjoy it from both spaces.

There are a few more trees around the house, and I'll be sharing those next week!
