Alright you guys, here it is… the moment I have been prepping for since Halloween day! (Yeah, you read right.) The day I get to show you my 2016 Christmas Tree! Don’t you worry, I have plenty more pictures of the whole house coming tomorrow, but today I am showing off my tree! This year I really gravitated towards more natural elements. One of the most prominent, being grapevine! I used grapevine balls as large ornaments, and grapevine as a garland! ( I used one strand, and it will run you about $10ish or less if you use a coupon at most craft stores. If you are unfamiliar with Grapevine, it often comes in a spool resembling a grapevine wreath.
You can add garland one of two ways; you can either leave it in long sections and press into the tree and work around it while add the remainder of your ornaments. Or you can try this! I cut my grapevine into small manageable sections.
Look at how much character and dimension it adds to the tree!
One other trick I have decided I love, is layering my ribbon! It adds just a little more pizzaz to a traditional ribbon. After which, I add red berries. Lots and lots of red berries!
Shhh… I am giving you just a small sneak peak for tomorrows post, my Holiday Home Tour 2016! Tune in tomorrow!

This is really beautiful!
Your tree is gorgeous!! Christmas Goals 😀 (who am I kidding? I will never have a tree that looks like that)
This is without a doubt the prettiest rustic tree I have ever seen! i actually don’t even care fur rustic trees, although I love rustic. This has a current day feel that makes it more of a modern day rustic and it’s just beautiful!
Your tree is gorgeous! I have been wanting to do something like this for a few years now. Can you give us more info about the tree itself? Who is the mfr? Did you purchase it flocked or was it a diy project? I have been looking for a flocked tree and haven’t been able to find one that I really like. Great job!
This tree is absolutely gorgeous, and I am totally in love with it! As you deconstruct your tree this year, I would love it if you would take and share pics of all the different elements you used. That would be really helpful. Thanks for everything you share!
