Rustic Plaid Christmas Tree

It's here, it's here! I've been getting a ridic amount of requests for a tour of my Christmas Tree, so here it is!! 

I had our tree up in the living room almost a month ago. I know, am I crazy? Maybe a little. I've never tried to hide it;) But seriously- I knew we had to get a head start because we'll be going away for 2 weeks in December and I wanted to really be able to enjoy our decor, and especially, our tree! So some of you have already seen our tree in my Instagram stories. As I've been sharing some peeks of our Rustic Christmas Plaid Christmas Tree there. 

Last year I used the ski's I picked up at the Target Dollar Spot in my tree and was sort of inspired by the mini sled's in this years Target Dollar Spot to create sort of a Rustic Ski Lodge theme in the living room- the plaid was inspired by the little mini deer heads I found and decided to make ornaments with. It was super easy.

I shared where my tree is from here and also where you can snag similar flocked trees for under $300! I'm really obsessed with flocked trees and I don't think I'll ever go back to a regular one ever again.

I really wanted to get back to my roots and create a cozy and classic country Christmas. I was nervous about using red at first, but I was so drawn to it this year for some reason and now I'm really loving all the color in my normally neutral decor. It's amazing how just adding a little bit of color can make things seem brand new and fun again in your home. I branched out, tried something new and loved it! So it inspires me to try new things in the future. 

I used some burlap garland, and some pinecone picks that I linked up at the bottom of this post, I added some pops of red and it really brought everything on the tree together compared to just using mercury glass last year. I ended up sticking the cotton stems in at the last minute just for fun and I ended up loving how it looked in the tree.

So simple and yet still beautiful. I was able to get most of the red and mercury glass ornaments at Home Goods, most from last year but the red ones are from this season. Home Goods is a really good place to shop for ornaments, super high quality and really cheap. Always my go to place! 

I stuck my tree in this galvanized tree skirt I picked up at Home Depot for $25! I think you can only order them online but I could be wrong, I've just never seen them in my store. I thought $25 was a really awesome deal. I'll share the link at the bottom of the post.

It's been so nice having our tree up so early, it's really getting me in the holiday spirit and I'm so glad we put it up so soon and can enjoy it longer. 
What do you guys think of the tree? What is your theme this year? Do you have one? I'd love to hear about it! You can chat with me on Instagram or Facebook, or you can leave a comment below.

  1. Laurie I love your home & your personality speaks through your IG stories. Thank you for inspiring me & also do you have beams in this room so that you could knock out a wall? We just bought a house and the wall that blocks kitchen and living room and dining room is driving me crazy! I feel like I'm in a maze �� But happy and blessed to be homeowners! Thanks again!

  2. Give me aaaallll the plaid! I could put plaid anywhere and everywhere. As a matter of fact, Targets dollar spot has made me want to change my entire Christmas theme to red and black buffalo check. This is gorgeous as always, Laurie!

  3. This looks gorgeous as usual! I could never do that to my main tree! We collect ornaments from all our travels and it's a hodge podge of all different things. It's sort of a mess but I love it!

  4. Now I totally wish I would have stocked up on the skis and sleds at Target. They look great in your tree! And I love the pops of buffalo plaid mixed in.
