Our White, Red and Gold Christmas Tree 2020

I have a huge confession to make. This year I redecorated my Christmas tree 3 times.


3 times!

I was just not feeling it. 

Not sure why but, I wasn’t in the flow or connected with my creativity.

Let’s face it, this year has not been easy and I think I put way too much pressure on myself and that affected my creative mood.

It was getting frustrating being Christmas my favorite time of the year and not finding my mojo!

The funny thing was that at some point I just decided to let it go.

So, I stepped back, went to do something else, turned off my computer, watched some TV shows, and gave myself some time.

A new day a new Christmas mood

The next day I felt like someone new. Cleared my Christmas tree once again and then started over.

Then, I put on some really happy music to set the mood…

I felt so much better and with lots of ideas started flowing and I just started adding garlands, ribbons, Christmas decorations, and ornaments and without even noticing it I was done.

I actually, had so much fun decorating my lovely tree.

I absolutely loved it.

It turned out just as it should. I achieved a balanced mix tween the rustic look and the glam from the champagne gold. 

I re-used lots of ornaments I had made in the past. Some got a revamp and some got just a few tweaks.

The whole decor turned out so inexpensive since I bought only a few things like the gold mesh ribbon, the pom-poms I used to make the garland, some super cute reindeer, and some champagne gold yarn ornaments.

To add pops of color, guess what? I decided to use again my red and white buffalo check ornaments I made a couple of years ago but changed the ribbon color to gold.

Then, I created 2 new ornaments that I completely love!

I filled clear ornaments with feathers and then decorated them with gold ribbon!

Then I loved the gold ribbon so much that I decided to make some clear ornaments filled with that ribbon and they turned out soooo cute!

Gold Christmas Tree decorations Spray-paint Frenzy

I hadn’t used my glitter Snowflakes in a couple of years and I wanted to use them. But since the white wasn’t going to use that much, I experimented with Champagne gold spray paint, and voila! How gorgeous they turned out!

After seeing how nice the spray-painted I decided to give it a try on my Monogram Family Ornaments.

I had used gold glitter on the bottom of each, but I wasn’t very happy with the bright yellow kind of gold. Using masking tape I protected the white areas leaving just the glitter and sprayed on top which champagne color.

Woot! It turned out amazing!!! I loved it!

Got in a spray frenzy and sprayed a little bit around the edges of my twine stars to cover the raw wire. It worked perfectly.

As you can see my main focus this year was on the gold/champagne and red with touches of white.

I absolutely love how my 2020 decoration turned out. The red brings so much warmth and happiness. The red truly cheers up and brings the Christmas spirit to the maximum. At least that’s how I feel.

Also, I used my lovely and rustic Merry Christmas wood sign! I just love to have those two words on our Christmas tree.

I can never leave out my mini wood signs. These are one of my favorite ornaments and so easy to make!

Then I filled some spots with white and gold ornaments and also some red ornaments here and there.

This year since we changed around our living room setting our Christmas tree now is closer to the sofa and our window.

Now, every time I sit on the living room sofa I feel this deep joy and almost can hear the reindeer’s jingle bells!

Christmas Tree Skirt

I used faux fur as my Christmas skirt like I do every year and placed some cute white and red throw pillows for a pop of color, lanterns, crates, and my beloved gnomes!

This is my favorite view right now in my house, it has this special warm glow!

The final touch, of course, my rustic wooden start could not miss the party! I still haven’t found a prettier star. This one stole my heart.

Christmas Tree Tips

  • Can’t find ornaments in the exact color you want? Don’t be afraid to spray paint the ones you have or some found on sale.
  • You can also wrap them in fabric to give them a unique and affordable look you are aiming for.
  • Use an old blanket or flannel fabric to make a tree skirt. Make it into a round shape and add a white frilly edge to make it look cozy.
  • Turn mason jars into old-fashioned lanterns by putting battery-powered tea lights inside. Put them on the tree to create a cozy and enchanting atmosphere.
  • Make special ornaments by using scrapbook paper that matches your theme. Cut circles and fold them in half. Use glue to stick two halves together to make 3D decorations.
  • Make your own special decorations with the initials of your family on wooden or ceramic discs. Use paint to make them match the theme.
  • Make bows using burlap or gold ribbons and tie them onto the tree branches.

Well my friends, hope you enjoyed this simple and rustic yet elegant Christmas Tree!
