Hello and Welcome…If you’ve come from the Decorators Warehouse blog I’m so glad you are here! We have such a fun tour for you so be sure to visit all the blog posts and get ready to be inspired!!!
Ta dah!!! Here she is in all her glory, our beautiful woodland themed Christmas tree. Lots of statement ornaments, gorgeous ribbon, and stunning picks from the Decorators Warehouse were used to achieve this elegant woodsy Christmas tree. When Decorators Warehouse https://decoratorswarehouse.com/ asked me if I wanted to participate in their “Home for the Holidays Christmas Tree Challenge” I jumped at the chance and was definitely up for the challenge. The goal was to create a themed tree using all the items from Decorators Warehouse.
If’ you’ve never been to Decorators Warehouse, let me just say it’s a Christmas decorators dream. They have so many gorgeous theme options and selections it’s hard to even choose. However, my neutral loving heart was craving an elegant, yet cozy vibe and this woodsy themed tree was just what I had in mind. It’s filled with a gorgeous neutral color combinations, a little sparkle, a little rustic and a touch of chic elegance. The perfect combo in my vision for this year.
Creating a designer tree can be intimidating , however the designer at Decorators Warehouse provided so many tips and tricks that gave me the confidence to create my own. I think if you break it down, the task isn’t so intimidating and actually can be quite simple. I’m sharing some tips and tricks that helped me create this beautiful tree. The tree itself is also from Decorator’s Warehouse. I needed a new one and because of our tall ceilings really wanted a 9′ tree. This beauty is more of a frosted look, not heavily flocked and has such a pretty shape to it.
Creating the topper is where I started. Of course this can be as simple or elaborate as you want. I added some of their spray lights to give more sparkle. Then I added the stems down in the top along the base of the tree. I used a variety of 5 different styles and about 5 of each, a total of 25 stems.
Once they are in the tree you can arrange them around the top to get the shape you want. By bending the stems you can create a full display just like creating a bouquet in the top of the tree.
I layered 2 styles of ribbon, a birch and black flannel plaid then cut them in segments and tucked them throughout the tree in a zig zag pattern. Having wired ribbon helps to make the shape and form you want and using the tree branches to attach the ribbon makes it super easy. The ribbon section in Decorators Warehouse is huge and you can shop all the options here https://decoratorswarehouse.com/decorations/christmas-tree-ribbon/
Adding bouquets to the tree helps to give it that designer look and fills up the tree nicely. For a 9′ tree I added about 7 clusters. Each cluster has a fern type stem, a berry stem and 2 different flowers. Poinsettias are a big trend this year in a variety of colors and patterns. I added a black and tan colored poinsettia along with a white leafy spray and a berry cluster. If you attach them wrapping one of the stems, you can tuck them into the tree upside down so they flow downward on the tree. When you take the tree down, just save the clusters for the next year. You can find a beautiful selection of flowers in many color options here https://decoratorswarehouse.com/decorations/christmas-flowers/
Adding a variety of signature, stand out ornaments gives this tree such a special touch. I started by creating two clusters of large rustic bells for a wow factor. They give the most unique vibe to the tree. Check out the gorgeous ornament selection here https://decoratorswarehouse.com/decorations/christmas-tree-ornaments/
There are so many fun ones to point out; the snowball, the cute present that matches the flower, glass reindeer ornament, pinecone acorn and birch sphere to name a few…
Just adding a few extra stems and single flowers helps to fill in gaps and holes and gives a more finished look to the tree. I added some additional berry picks and a few poinsettias in different patterns. Adding some extra large shatterproof balls can fill in big gaps in the back of branches as well.
