Rustic Glam Christmas Tree

I’m so happy to share with you that this season I’m part of the Wicker Emporium Ambassador team. The team is put together of a few of my favourite Canadian bloggers and we’re excited to bring you our first addition.

Rustic glam Christmas tree decor from The Wicker Emporium

Of course given the time of year, Christmas decor was the first project on the list. I was thrilled to find so many beautiful decorations in store and online.

Mercury glass Christmas bulbs from The Wicker Emprorium

Once I set eyes on these mercury glass bulbs I knew I had to incorporate them into my Christmas decor.

These glittered woven twig ornaments really set the tone for the rustic glam Christmas tree image I had in my head.

I used strips of soft blue satin I had on hand, plus a bit of coordinating ribbon and let the Wicker Emporium Christmas ornaments be the star of the show.  A trick I use to hold the garland just where I want is to use bobby pins!

Using a basket to place the tree in allows this smaller artificial tree to be given a bit more height; now the 4 foot tree is an easy 6!  The Wicker Emporium has an awesome selection of baskets that would work perfect to give your tree a lift!

I love how the bulbs twinkle in the lights; really sets the stage for a beautiful holiday atmosphere.
