Have Yourself a Very Rustic Christmas

November 14th, 2014 | Christmas Decor, Learn How, Seasonal

Growing up in the country and on a farm one would say I’ve lived quite the rustic life. My mom had good taste in decor, but my Dad was the great white hunter type, so our TV room also doubled as big game trophy room (there are only so many ways you can fix up a room filled with animal heads).

When our Canadian Hop group decided to do a Rustic Christmas Hop, I had no other choice than to pay homage to my childhood Christmas and do up a very Rustic inspired Christmas Tree (since antlers and deer heads are all the rage my Dad is the hottest thing since sliced bread!).


Welcome to this little Rustic Christmas cabin. Won’t you stay for a sip of hot coco while your mittens toast on the wood stove?

Woodland inspired handmade ornaments

When I came across the new Herringbone wired ribbon from May Arts Ribbon, I knew that would be the leading lady for this Rustic Christmas Tree.

But when searching for Rustic Christmas Tree Ornaments I didn’t come across any that I loved /that were in my price range. So I needed to come up with a set of my own.

Rustic woodland Handmade Christmas Tree Ornaments

I made dangling birch sticks, glittered acorns, leather woodland creature hoop art, twig stars, glittered grapevine wreaths, snowy twig ornaments, and linen wrapped balls with deep red silk and feathers. I tried to use natural elements and give them a tiny glam touch with some cut glass glitter.

Rustic Christmas Tree

I have to say everything on this tree caught my husbands and little guys eye. I’m guessing its the hunting camp vibe the whole thing gives off.

Rustic Glittered accorns

Adding a little touch of glitter to acorns gives a bit of sparkle to your rustic christmas tree.

Handmade Rustic Christmas Ornaments

A tiny hint of deep red gives this Christmas scene a touch of vintage charm. I love the leather woodland creature silhouettes (tutorial to come).

Vintage enamel kitchen wood stove

This vintage enamel wood stove lived in my Aunts house for years. The perfect setting for a rustic Christmas.

I hope you enjoyed my walk though this rustic Christmas. Be sure to follow along the hope for lots more Rustic Christmas ideas.
