Listen, I know naked trees are trending in farmhouse decor right now, but I don’t know if I have the physical strength NOT to put anything on a tree. That is how this cute little eucalyptus Christmas tree came to be!
I mean, when I started styling this space I started with two tiny, naked, trees then I transitioned to a mini tree with twinkle lights.…annnnnd the rest is history. I had this RUSTIC DIY GARLAND on hand leftover from my fall mantle and I decided to use that resource to deck another set of halls.
This eucalyptus Christmas tree took on it’s personality from the time I place it in this little wicker basket. I found mine at a discount store but amazon has a selection of wicker here.
The basket housed some eucalyptus stems already so I just incorporated those into the topper of the tree, again these are a thrift store find I already had laying around the house. Thrifted or not, when they were paired with rolled pages from an old book, it immediately took on an elegant yet rustic feel.
Not only did I reuse a fall garland, I also styled the tree with another DIY from years past. Can you guess which one?
If you said the spray painted nativity, you are right1
I think it is the perfect compliment to this eucalyptus Christmas tree. What do you think? I mean after all, that is what Christmas is all about!
This little eucalyptus tree is like finding love on a blind date. I had no idea what I was getting into when I walked in but boy did I love the end result!
I hope this is an inspiration for you to shop your own home and old looks for a way to put a fresh spin on them!
