O Christmas Tree

In keeping with my natural woodsy Christmas theme this year my tree has the same log cabiny snowy vibe happening.


A room filled with furniture and a Christmas tree


I used a lot of burlap ribbon and natural elements like pine cones.

This Happy Holidays ribbon I found at Michael’s and just cut it and stuck it in the tree, doesn’t get easier than that.

Tree and Ornament


This idea is all over Pinterest but I modge podged some ornaments in book pages. Most people use beautiful old music sheets or vintage books. I used an old paperback detective story I picked up at a junk shop, I don’t necessarily recommend this! The Mr. pointed out there were a few 4 letter words on them that I didn’t notice, oops! Nothing says Merry Christmas like curse word laden ornaments :)


I also love all the flocked trees I have been seeing, so I picked up a couple of cheap flocked garlands and wound them thru my tree to give me the same look.

I made this cute garland out of old book pages (curse word free this time!) and yarn.

Remember my DIY wrapping paper? I’ve been busy spray painting more.

I tried to get a couple of night time shots too…

(just noticing as I edit this photo that my favorite 4 year old put her little red and green Christmas chain on the tree, sneaky girl, can you spot it?)

Merry Christmas!

  9. What a gorgeous tree! I totally giggled when I read about your curse word ornaments! Love it! I totally did that once with a tray I mod podged book pages to.

    And I still just love your modern looking fireplace with all your other stuff! I was thinking about it the other day and thinking ‘now which blog was that? i sure hope I followed it!’ so glad I did!

  11. I love your tree Kelly! The natural elements are so cute! The curse word ornaments will be the talk of the Christmas party, Im sure! I love how your daughter snuck in her own decorative touch on the tree too. She must get that need to create from her Mamma?
    PS: My kids have moved their favouritte decorations on our tree down to their level and spiderman was in the manger.. ;) Kids are the best.
