Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree! Let’s talk all about Farmhouse Cottage Christmas Trees! Each year I love having a new theme for the trees in our home. This year I went with a neutral and vintage style for our main tree and a natural cozy ski lodge for the guest bedroom. All the other trees in our home are simple with just cozy twinkle lights for that added glow.
There is just something about a twinkling glow paired with vintage mercury glass balls that creates so much coziness. The best part about mercury glass balls on a farmhouse cottage Christmas tree is that there is no wrong ornament or tone. I did a mixture of sizes, colors, and shapes. All of the texture and dimension really give the tree a simple but beautiful vintage Christmas glow. Although there are different layers with the balls, there was still something missing.
Adding additional lighting to your tree can always bring another element. Since I wanted to keep a vintage vibe, I thought about what did my grandparents use to decorate their trees. I remembered these battery candle sticks that clipped onto the tree and that is just wanted I decided to use. They added the perfect space filler, dimension, and adding a cozy glow! Simple and vintage just bring joy to my soul!
Our snowy flocked tree just has the look that you would find it outside of a cozy ski lodge cabin. This is exactly what I knew that this tree needed. I started to grab the pieces that instantly reminded me of visiting a cozy cabin at a ski lodge. All sizes of skis, sleds, and any natural elements that are found during the ski season.
I start with putting half of the chunky and large ornaments on the tree first. Once you have half your large ornaments on, this is when I start putting on the smaller ornaments to fill in space. Last layer on the other half of you large ornaments and it is okay for them to cover other ones because that will give you the layered and full tree look. You may still have some holes to fill, this is where I take the natural elements and any picks I have to stick in to fill those spaces. Add your topper and you have that cozy cabin Christmas tree.
I hope these trees inspire you to create your own cozy farmhouse cottage Christmas tree! Please share with us if you do over one Instagram, Pinterest, or TikTok! Thank you for stopping by the blog today and everyday!
