There is nothing more Christmas-y than the color red. It screams Christmas to me. It has always been the color to associate with Christmas. I decided to do this tree in a video so I grabbed all of my red berry garland, red wood beads, red finial ornaments and ornaments I had collected over the years. I love mixing garland in my trees to make it fuller especially when the tree is a plain jane. Here are some pics of what I used in this tree.
You can see the pine cone and magnolia garland tucked in the tree and the pine garland.
I have lots of ornaments that I have collected over the years and also some have been given. For instance, the Hope one was given to me by a dear friend that I worked with for years. She didn’t have much money that year and had given me a book and this ornament. It is one I cherish because she is no longer with us on this earth. She went home to be with Jesus just a short time ago. So cherish those people and the memories.
I guess that is why I love seeing the ornaments more than all the ribbons and picks. Sentimental is my weakness and the reason I have so much stuff.
For the tree skirt, I just took a red and white gingham tablecloth and wrapped it around the base. I bought this tablecloth on clearance after the 4th of July back years ago. Tablecloths are a cheap way to get a bunch of fabric to use for tree skirt.
If you love red traditional Christmas trees make sure to save to Pinterest.
