Gold Ombre Christmas Tree

I am so excited to show off my Dream Tree! This is my very first Christmas tree that is fully decorated {two words: little kids}, has  matching ornaments {not the collection of mismatch ornaments that we’ve collected over the years}, and is really pretty! Don’t get me wrong, we will still have our mismatch tree in the family room! But my dream Christmas Tree is front and center in our entry way.

I’m in love with gold right now, which I’m sure many of you are too! So I decided to do a gold ombre Christmas tree that starts with white ornaments at the top, then cream ornaments, then gold ornaments and a dark bronze at the bottom. Its a very subtle effect, but totally awesome! The ombre gives the tree some depth and draws your eye up to the top.

To balance out the gold, I used natural elements like pinecones, wood snowflakes, and stenciled burlap. Which, let me just say, the holiday line of stenciled burlap ribbon that Michaels has in stock right now, totally rocks!! I am determined to use the stag print this holiday season! {check out the line of stenciled burlap in my Instagram picture here.}

For a simple and easy gift wrapping idea, I used white burlap ribbon to tie bows around the kraft paper wrapped presents. Looks awesome and can be reused on other presents!

I made the ruffled Christmas tree skirt a couple years ago. You can find the Ruffled Drop Cloth Christmas Tree skirt tutorial here.

You can see the ombre effect better with the tree lights off.

Sorry for the wonky lighting! Christmas trees are tricky to photograph….

Christmas Ornaments

Michaels has these gorgeous wooden snowflakes. They are seriously one of my favorite things about my dream Christmas tree! I spray painted them white and they are just perfect. They coordinate with the snowflake stenciled burlap on my tree.

And these glittery gold bows! gah! I kind of did a little happy dance when I saw these. Aren’t they adorable?? Michaels is killing it with the Christmas decorations this year. Lots and lots of great on-trend products. {trust me, I went up and down every aisle multiple times in the last month while putting together this Christmas tree!}

I made a couple Christmas ornaments and I’ll be sharing more about them soon!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it, Linda!! I love the Ombre effect, and like you said, it really does draw your attention to he top!! Great job!! XO

    It’s gorgeous!!!! I actually had a similar idea last year. Unfortunately with a cross country move & always getting over ruled with the mismatched ornaments the rest of the family loves- I have yet to be able to put one together. I will be working on that hopefully this year. Fingers crossed. If I had my way- this is exactly what I would do.

    Gorgeous tree! We usually buy a real one (or put up a fake on if we’ll be traveling for the holiday) the first weekend in December. I can’t bring myself to do it any earlier (unless there’s a good incentive, like a sponsorship!). So cool that Michael’s has that hotline! I love the burlap ribbon that you made – it gives a nice rustic touch to all the sparkles.

    I generally put up our tree(s) the day after Thanksgiving. Last year I was having a HUGE holiday party, so I started decorating the day after HALLOWEEN!!! Skipping that event this year. Way too expensive and I don’t have the energy!!! lol I sure do love my tiny tree in my bedroom. My main tree is all pink and I couldn’t love it more!!!!

    It’s beautiful! I like the gold combined with the rustic look of the pinecones. My son’s birthday is on November 25th, and my husband never lets me put the tree up before his birthday party. So we usually put it up right after Thanksgiving, although I’d love to put it up sooner!

    You’re tree is absolutely beautiful!!! I am also doing gold and brown for my tree to give it more of an natural outdoors affect. I love, love, love the burlap garland. I am going to have to get me some of this. I really don’t want to use the other type of garland because I think it will throw off the theme of the tree. I have some pine cones that I am also going to add to the tree with a little sparkle on them. Now the tree skirt…I just got me a sewing machine and I am going to check out your tutorial and let’s start crossing fingers and toes I get it right!! :-)

      Gold and brown will make a gorgeous outdoor tree! Would love to see it when you’re done! The tree skirt is fairly easy, but let me know if you have any questions! Thanks for stopping by! Linda

    I love the tree, especially the burlap ribbon. I have already went to Michaels to buy some ribbon. Thanks for the information that they already had it out. Can you tell me how much ribbon you used on the tree? Thanks!
