Glam Metallic Farmhouse Christmas Tree

It’s that time of year…it’s time for the Michaels Dream Tree Challenge.  This is quite possibly one of my favorite blog post all year long.  Not only do I love dreaming up a new theme for my own tree, but I absolutely love looking at all of the other makers trees too.  Every year I wonder if it’s possible to fall in love with the new tree as much as I loved last year’s. There is no doubt about it, I am completely smitten with this year’s theme and my Glam Metallic Farmhouse Christmas Tree.

This summer we added shiplap to one of the walls in our living room and we’ve slowly been working on transforming our home into what I like to think of as modern farmhouse decor.  I knew I wanted my tree to reflect our new style, and I wanted it to have a touch of glam.  I loved all of the metallic Christmas ornaments and decorations at Michaels this year, and they provided the perfect inspiration for my tree.

The giant copper magnolia blooms were what inspired this year’s color scheme.  I loved the deep hue and it reminded me of something you might find in the forest. Plus, I liked the fact that it was different from the typical Christmas gold you see everywhere this time of year. While copper was my main color, I also wanted to incorporate other metallics to really make it pop.  I used shimmer metallic ribbon and layered two different kinds with the metallic ball garland.  I love the way it sparkles and shines as the light bounces off of it.

I incorporated lots of metallic ornaments, everything from glass balls and glitter covered ornaments to vintage inspired glass ornaments.

Last year I created a Winter Woodland Christmas tree that featured lots white, owls and rustic ornaments.  There were elements about that tree that I loved and decided to incorporate them into this year’s tree as well. The pop of white from the owls and fluffy feather ornaments make it feel cozy.

While I wanted our farmhouse Christmas tree to reflect nature inspired whites and metallics, I also thought it needed a small pop of color. Aqua is the one color that you can find year round in my home so I decided to add some to the tree too. I took aqua ornaments and added copper leaf to the bottom of them to tie everything together.  I also used copper washi tape to decorate several other aqua ornaments.

I think one of the things that make a Christmas tree extraordinary is adding different greenery and texture to the tree.  I added lots of snow covered pine tree picks throughout the tree.  I incorporated several different styles and textures to give it depth and create that full look that makes a Christmas tree look so glam.

I could sit and stare at this gorgeous glam metallic farmhouse Christmas tree all day.  The way the lights twinkle, the ornaments glimmer and the metallic colors pop make me so happy and ready to enjoy the Christmas season with my loved ones.
