Of course I took full advantage of my time there to decorate the farmhouse for Christmas. I had stuff everywhere while I worked. I put out the Christmas candles, decorated the mantel and entry table, and of course, the tree.
In a previous post, I shared my twig stars and acorn bells. You can see that here: Theme For The Farmhouse Tree. Here's how they look in the tree:
I also took some pinecones and either added glitter or "snow" to them.
The red felt reindeer came from Wal-Mart and I added a few ornaments I already had that were nature inspired like the olivewood nativity.
I have also been saving can lids to make ornaments. To make, I spray-painted them Hammered Red, punched a hole in them, added a twine or ribbon hanger, then added different sayings and designs using a silver Sharpie paint pen:
Then I made the cutest felt owls:

I think they turned out oh so cute and they add a sweet touch to my tree.!
The lights are the most expensive thing on the tree - I bought the warm white LED lights - I like how they look and the warm glow they give off!
I am very pleased with my natural and rustic theme. Best of all, I didn't have to spend a great deal of money and got to reuse things that would otherwise have been trash!
I hope you'll join me over the next few weeks when I'll share the other decorated areas in the farmhouse and my favorite Christmas cookie recipes.
I hope you are having a wonderful week filled with Christmas cheer!
