I’m so excited today to be part of a Christmas Tree Decor Hop! I can hear my sister’s laughing out loud as they read this. It’s the fourth annual hop hosted by Michelle at Our Crafty Mom. I might not be invited back after seeing last year’s collection but I’m showing up with my cottage style tree.
Be sure to go around and visit all the trees for a virtual Christmas tour, the only kind it looks like we will be getting this year. There are some truly amazing trees. All the links are shared below. There’s a tree for everyone!
Cottage christmas style
I love a large Christmas tree, but the reality is it just doesn’t fit in my house. I have a five-foot tree and it feels the right size to me. What gives it a cottage style is that the ornaments are all smaller scale, they don’t match and they look vintage. I haven’t purchased any Christmas ornaments because my mom gave me a box full of ornaments from childhood.
These ornaments won’t mean much to you, but what I like about them is how clever they are. You can still find these kinds of ornaments on my favorite marketplace for creators, ETSY. Here are some of my favorites.
Painted Gourds – Here’s a vendor on ETSY that makes adorable painted gourd ornaments with as much detail as this one.
Stuffed Felted Ornaments – I don’t know why we ended up with these mice, but one is a bride and the other is wearing a red cape with a white muff. I just think they are so cute. They remind me of the Rescuers. This ETSY seller has some adorable felted ornaments that are even cuter.
Ornaments With Special Meaning – My family wasn’t that into sports. The only sport we watched growing up was tennis. I found an ETSY seller that makes cycling ornaments made out of recycled bicycle chains. This year I also made a music instrument because we love music and have been using that to help with our Covid blues.
Now it’s time to see all of the other Christmas trees. I hope you enjoy.
