Are you looking for a unique and beautiful way to celebrate the Christmas season? One of the easiest and most affordable ways to do this is by decorating your tree in rustic home decor. You don’t need a special occasion or special lights; just some basic country Christmas decor items will get you through the holiday season in style. Let me show you how to decorate a country Christmas tree in just two easy steps. In fact, these steps can be applied to any tree in your home.
The first thing you need to do is to select a wonderful selection of rustic wood trim for your tree. The type of wood you choose depends on the style of your home and the look you want to achieve. I would suggest choosing hickory, maple, or pine for your country style.
Once you have chosen your wood, you will need to gather some basic rustic accessories for your country Christmas trees. These include small decorative pillows, tiny nativity sets, tiny reindeer or other holiday icons, glitter paint, an old country music note, and even some glue and paint. If you are planning on doing the decorating on your own, then you will probably want to start with a smaller tree. It will be easier to work with and save money on all the tiny items you need to put together. Once you have your tree completed, you can decorate the rest of your home in your own unique style.
There are many Christmas decor items available to use for your country Christmas decorating. For example, you might find a simple wire country stocking to be quite elegant. Another idea is to use raffia for garland around your door.
In order to create the rustic look, you will want to paint your tree with an all natural rustic color. This color should be one that does not have too much blue or purple in it. You can always use your imagination and choose to paint your tree with any shade of green you wish. Just remember that green goes with just about everything, so if you do choose to use a darker shade, that is okay.
The raffia that you will use for your country Christmas trees should be a plain color. This way it will tie in with everything else in your home. However, it may be necessary to add some fake greenery to really complete the look. It is also a good idea to make sure you have a few branches for sprigs.
You might also consider adding some handmade ornaments to your tree. There are many craft stores that carry these types of items. Alternatively, you could use some craft paint and fabric paint for this project as well. The material you will use should be something that can withstand the cold of the winter season.
The last step when decorating country Christmas trees is to use your glitter on the tree. Glitter is a great way to add a little sparkle to your tree. The best thing about glitter is that it can easily be added to a variety of projects. If you already have some items that you are using for your Christmas holiday crafts, then all you have to do is simply use them as a guide. This way you will have everything that you need ready to go when you start decorating country Christmas trees in your own home.
Another craft idea that you can use when you are decorating country Christmas trees at home is to create a country Christmas scene on the cover of the DVD or movie. There are so many great DVD covers that you can choose from. Choose a fun color or theme and gather some glitter in the colors that are featured on the cover. You can then add a border to the glitter that goes around the edge of the disc. You can then add ribbon and bows in the appropriate spots on the CD cover.
Some other country Christmas decoration ideas include things like homemade country Christmas cards. These cards can be made with fabric paint or a combination of fabric paint and markers. Instead of making your own card, you can buy some inexpensive ones in plain colors that have beautiful borders around them. Decorate each one of these cards just like the ones that you made but use a fabric marker to draw intricate details.
You can also decorate country Christmas trees using raffia. Raffia comes in many different colors and designs. You can find raffia that look handmade or made to look like it was made by someone that was professionally trained. Use this material to add an element of the holiday to your tree. There are many things you can do to decorate country Christmas trees, so think about what you would like to do for your own country Christmas tree.
