15 Inspired Christmas Tree Ideas

15 Inspired Christmas Tree Ideas

I love Christmas Trees of all shapes and sizes. Today I’m joining a talented Group of Bloggers for a Festive and Fun Christmas Tree Blog Hop Tour hosted by Stacy at Stacy Ling Bricks N Blooms.

Because I love styling Christmas Trees so much, I’m sharing 15 Inspired Christmas Tree Ideas that I’ve used this year around the farmhouse.

Please check out all the other Christmas Tree Inspiration at the end of my post.

The Main Christmas Tree – Inspired Ideas

First, this is the main tree in the living area. Because the space is limited, a smaller 6 1/2 ft. tree was placed inside this vintage container and sits on a riser to give it more height.

The tree is the frosted Alpine Balsam Fir from Balsam Hill. Therefore, some flocking was added to these mini trees to create a winter wonderland feel. You can see how to easily flock a tree on this post.

Simplicity is key when decorating my Christmas Trees.

This year I used only red vintage shiny brites and added these vintage hand painted delicate clear ornaments, which I recently found. In addition to all the vintage ornaments, some new frosted red berries and farmhouse style ribbon were added.

Two star ornaments are tied together and used as the tree topper.

My number 1 most shared Christmas Tree was this simple design from two years ago. All the ornaments are vintage Shiny Brites and the simplicity of this tree sparked nostalgia in so many people. Which version do you like best? If you like the look of vintage ornaments, see Easiest Way to Age New Christmas Ornaments here.

The Shiplap Tree

This is our 4th Christmas in the farmhouse and each year the DIY Shiplap Tree is placed on the screen porch. It fits perfectly inside the vintage cast iron witches pot. LOL

I’m inspired to use a woodland theme here because of the rustic nature of the tree. Therefore, the wooden branches are filled with foraged grapevine & pinecones. To complete the theme, red birds, snow birds, pop corn & cranberry garland, diy ticking rag ornaments and garland, are added.


Trees of a feather flock together

That’s not exactly the quote but hopefully it makes sense when being inspired to style multiple trees.

Three trees that have similar flocking, were used together in the bedroom and created a winter wonderland feel in here as well.

In addition, three more flocked trees were gathered together inside this vintage dough bowl.

Even the repurposed bottle brush trees are flocked together. No pun intended. LOL

This group of wooden trees has more impact when styled together. To give interest, one tree is surrounded by a candle ring and another is lifted to new heights with a candle base.

Under a Cloche Inspired Christmas Trees

This is a sure way to make anything shine, just place it under glass. With that in mind, bottle brush trees and white ceramic trees are nestled inside the vintage wine barrel and covered by beautiful cloche’s.

Add DIY details

Each year this mini tree has sat on the kitchen island holding tiny holiday cookie cutters. To change it up this year, the cookie cutters were tied onto a dried orange garland and the tree was placed inside a vintage bowl. You can see the previous posts on how to dry oranges and then make a simple garland with them.

If you like dried oranges, you will love these cedar and orange topiaries here.


Inspired Christmas Tree Containers

Another way to make small trees stand out from the crowd is to place them inside interesting containers. Here are a few of the containers used for Christmas trees this year.

First, we have a wooden hat box and old galvanized container, that both look adorable with these mini trees.

The mini dough ornaments were a thrift store find and a favorite simple way to style a little tree.

Next, is an old crock which holds a simple tree and is paired with a mini dough bowl holding two tiny little trees.

And then, a chippy red tool box is perfect for holding Christmas dishes, utensils and of course, a mini tree.

Finally, you can see that nothing around the house is safe from being filled with a Christmas tree.

The Greenhouse Tree Inspiration

Have I told you how excited I am about decorating the DIY Greenhouse? Well, I had to add a tree here as well, and it is adorned with vintage inspired garland and some grapevine ball ornaments.

The Front Porch Christmas Trees Ideas

When you visit the front porch, you’ll see that one small tree is adorned with real vintage and diy faux vintage ornaments. You can see how to make new ornaments looks vintage on this post.

Another way to style a simple tree, is to tuck pinecones and berries within it’s branches.

Another perfect way to display a Christmas Tree is to place it inside a vintage crate, as we saw a few weeks ago, during the Pinterest Challenge. This was such a fun challenge and if you missed the original post, it’s still available here.

When planning your holiday decorating, I hope this inspires you to think outside the box. It was so much fun to share this Christmas Tree Tour with you.

I enjoy your inspiring ideas and look forward to them! We just built our house and moved in, so we have lots of leftover building materials, including some shiplap. Would you put the shiplap tree on a front porch? If so, would you secure the decorations on it with hot glue, or what do you suggest? Thank you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sherry, It will work on a porch but you do need to weight the items down. A dab of hot glue would work. I attach some of mine to the garland because the garland will hang on better than a single ornament. You just don't want to ruin an ornament with the hot glue so be careful where you place it. It will pop right off the wood when you're done.

Love all the trees and my favorite is the one with the snowman and the base being the wood box. All the snowmen you add around the house add to the charm, love the organic feel of them.
