Follow the list at the end of each post to see all the different design trends of all the other bloggers in the hop. Let’s get started!
Eclectic Bohemian Style Christmas Tree
For this years holiday display, I decided to change up the scenery and put up my tree in my living room. This room has two large windows and is on the front of the house. It is also where my favorite funky eclectic furniture resides. My previous holiday tours have showcased my high ceiling, open floor plan family room around my fireplace and entryway. So this year I decided to try a new room this year and I am thrilled at how it turned out! I think the neutral tones with black and peach go together beautifully.
After Thanksgiving, we will be moving this tree back to the family room. We love how it looks next to my super tall windows on the back of the house. Plus I have a few more projects in store for the holidays as well. I made some boho stockings and a fun tree skirt to pull the look all together. Stay tuned for my holiday home tour see the rest of the room and fireplace setting.
Let’s start with the tree itself. After sharing this image on social media, I have had so many inquiries from people wanting to know where I got this tree. It is a 7.5 foot Northeastern Fir Flocked tree that I found at Walmart. This tree is truly unique and looks so different than the normal flocked Christmas trees. Its long billowy frosted needles are just gorgeous. It reminds me of a department store display tree and for under $200 it’s a steal.
The one thing I do not like about it is I wish it came in larger taller sizes. I came up with a solution for that! If you notice the bottom of my tree, I decided to give it a little height.
I literally placed the tree base on four crates and covered them with a southwestern pattern blanket and crocheted tassel throw. The tree is now standing at around 8.75 feet. Easy peasy!
Most of the ornaments on my tree were handmade and created by me. Follow the links below to see how I made each one.
Last year I fell in love with the look of Targets tribal ornaments, they are the black ones shown on the left above. Sadly they are no longer available to purchase. I loved them so much, I wanted to make my own version, the Boho Tribal Fabric Ball Ornament on the right. For this project, I decoupaged some large gold ornaments and added leather cording to accent the sections.
I used antler floral picks and I made them into antler ornaments by painting them and adding leather cording for hangers. Next, I painted wood feather ornaments with paint pens and glitter. To add some glam, I purchased some vintage looking gold mercury glass ornaments, small disco balls, silver glitter balls, and large silver ornaments to add some sparkle.
