How To Decorate A Themed Tree For Christmas
I am the first to admit that I don’t usually like change when it comes to decorating a themed Christmas tree. The last few years I have kept my favorite Farmhouse Style Buffalo Checked Christmas Decor up for Christmas. I do still have this beauty set up, but I decided to branch out and try something new in a few other rooms of the house.
In our main living room, we have put up a silver and blue themed tree. To represent my husband’s favorite sports team. I won’t go full-on NFL theme, but I will go with the colors. This way everyone stays happy.
Our entryway has just enough room for a small tabletop tree. This rustic pencil tree was a welcoming curbside find. Someone abandoned this little cutie. I knew I could add some rustic decorations and add to its charm. This is how I put together a simple, rustic, neutral tree with a fun Twelve Days Of Christmas theme.
Decor For A Twelve Days Of Christmas Decorated Christmas Tree
Since this cute 3 Foot Pencil Tree is pretty rustic, I wanted to keep the decorations very simple. Battery operated white lights were a must-have since there is no electrical plug where I wanted to set up the tree. There is even a built-in timer so they come on at dusk and turn themselves off a few hours later.
I started by finding some fun ornaments that I could make with my Cricut Maker. I found this perfect set from Suncatcher Studios. Using 100lb. white card stock, I cut them all and embellished the numbers with some mod podge and red glitter. Of course, the 5 gold rings got some gold glitter instead. Once the glitter was dry I placed them on the tree in order of the song.
Neutral Christmas Tree Ornaments
These plain wood snowflake ornaments were found at Walmart and the Dollar Tree. I am so glad I didn’t paint them, they work perfectly for this simple tree.
Burlap ribbon and red and white baker’s twine tied on the ends of the branches fill in some bare spots that the ornaments couldn’t. A little faux snow sheets and simple bottlebrush trees are all I used to finish the base of the tree.
If you are looking for artwork to match your theme, try printing a pretty piece of sheet music. Add a matching frame to give it a polished look.
You can use these tips for any theme that you choose.

What a cute Christmas tree, Heather! I love all the simple ornaments and the bottlebrush trees you surrounded it with.
I love your small Christmas tree. It is just me and now I have a great idea for mine.
I really like the size of this tree because you can use it in so many places. That’s a theme that takes some thought! It was fun hopping with you.
You created a beautiful tree with your curbside find. The 12 Days of Christmas ornaments that you made with your Cricut do not look at all like paper. I thought they were ceramic ornaments until I read that you made them. I also love your natural wood snowflake ornaments. Enjoy your tree this Christmas season.
This is such a great theme for your tree and the ornaments are adorable.
Your sweet little tabletop tree is perfect for displaying your twelve days of Christmas/ The silhouette style ornaments are perfect on your small tree where they can truly be appreciated for their message of the 12 days and their symbols.
The elegant simplicity of this tree works so well. Love, love, love that cotton wreath.
Heather, I am in love with your handmade ornaments with a 12 days theme. Such a great idea and a lot of work I’m sure! It looks so pretty on the table with the bottle brush trees. Thank you so much for participating in our tree hop. Happy holidays!
Looking at your curbside find tree reminds me of the Charlie Brown tree at first, but you really pulled it together with a lovely twelve days of Christmas theme. What a unique and creative idea! And I love the handcrafted ornaments you made for it, too!
I always love a tree with a theme and this one is so sweet! It looks like it took a minute to make all those ornaments, but they look amazing! Definitely worth it!
Can’t believe you found that rustic tree curbside, that’s what you call a great find! And it looks perfect as a tabletop tree with all your special handmade ornaments. Merry Christmas!
What a great find and cute tree. I really like how you decorated around the bottom of the tree. Oh, and I think I need to get those timer lights 🙂
How could someone abandon that cute tree? I’m so glad you found it and brought it back to life. Your 12 Days of Christmas theme is genius! I love that you made the ornaments with your Cricut. That was clever to frame the 12 Days music sheet, too. Pinned!
A 12 Days of Christmas themed tree is such a fun idea! Your tree looks great, Heather!
