Woodsy Elegant Christmas Tree

Posted by on December 16, 2016 in Decor | 4 comments

Usually the words both “woodsy and elegant”  don’t quite fit together. Most people would do one or the other. However, my Christmas tree is best described as both – a Woodsy, Elegant Christmas Tree. Let me show you.

We live in a wooded area so I thought I would use some things, found in my yard, as tree decorations. There are wild turkeys in our area and they sometimes lose a feather or two. I collect them and use them in my tree as well as some branches. Sound funny? Maybe…..  You tell me!

The garland is like a bunch of twisted branches accented with bunches of red berries. It has held up for many years and used many ways. It adds a lot of “woodsy feel” to the tree.

For the elegant part, I have 12 gold balls that I hand carried from Germany (to protect from breakage) that add the sparkle and some elegance to the tree

Can you find the feathers and branches? Yes, there are pheasant feathers, too.

I think almost anything works as long as it adds color, texture, form and memories! Don’t you?

Find a theme and go for it!

  1. Hi Phyllis, I must say your tree is the prettiest that I have seen! Those ornaments from Germany are beautiful! Love the feathers too…love allof it! Happy Holidays Lisa@ Sweet Tea N’ Salty Air

    • How sweet of you! Thanks for your lovely comment and have a Blessed Christmas!

  2. I think it works so well because it’s limited to three colors–brown, gold, and red. The feathers are such a nice addition.

    Peace and joy to you and yours as we celebrate the hope that was given to us by the birth of our Lord and Savior.

    • Thank you for your lovely comments. I celebrate that hope through the birth of Jesus, God’s son!

Love to hear from you!
