Is everyone having an awesome weekend?  As you know from our easy rustic Christmas wreath post yesterday, we started decking the halls at Hello I Live Here. Today we are going to add to our front porch display, our Rustic Christmas Tree Display.

Rustic Christmas Tree Display

We finished a rustic Christmas tree display for the front porch.  This rustic Christmas display consists of our rustic planter box we built a couple weeks ago which was featured on Bob Vila Nation.  The wonderful oversized rustic planter box tree display simply makes the porch.  We used Martha Stewart ornaments in rust, gold’s, and whites purchased from The Home Depot.  The tree received beautiful burlap ribbons, which set’s the tree to new highs in this beautiful Minwax Dark Walnut stained planter box.

Here’s how Hello I Lived Here set up the rustic Christmas tree display:

First, we started by finishing the rustic box off with a cross-X pattern to give that rustic feel.  We added a holder inside the rustic box and “I” bolts to secure the real Christmas tree that adorns the box.

Then, I added beautiful rustic burlap green and tan ribbon, and made a lovely bow for the top center of the Tree, and tied the ribbon around the rustic box.

Next, we used rustic decorations to bring the beautiful tree together.

Finally, we put the lovely decorated tree into place on the porch and lit the tree up.

That’s our rustic Christmas display for part of our porch.

We hope you enjoyed our post of the rustic Christmas tree display today.  Tomorrow we will show you the whole porch, lights and all.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Saturday!

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope your day was awesome :-).  We started decking the halls at Hello I Live Here today and we are going to show you all how we made our easy rustic Christmas wreath.  I love wreaths because they give a warm welcome feel to your home. I am always excited to share our wonderful decor with the neighborhood.  Once the decorations start appearing, you know that Christmas time has come!!!

We decide that our front area would be done in a minimal, rustic feel.  We did not deck the halls with an overabundance of decor this year, but a tasteful rustic theme to share with our wonderful neighbors.

Our easy rustic Christmas wreath took about 30 minutes, and was made for the front of our garage.  While I worked on the easy rustic Christmas wreath, my hubby helped by prepping our front porch so we could finish this display tomorrow (I can’t wait to share it with you all). 🙂

This easy rustic Christmas wreath was a Red Racks thrift store find for under $15.  The wonderful over-sized wreath is a simple wood branching tied together.  It had old ivy on it, so I simply removed the old stuff, and made a lovely bow, adorned with beautiful ribbon from Michaels at $1.88 a roll, and Martha Stewart Ornaments purchased from The Home Depot for $39, which we purchased for our Christmas tree porch display.  This whole porch display/easy wreath cost us under $60.  But the best part, using all these simple, left over items from the display of the front porch, thrift store finds, and inexpensive ribbon made the easy rustic Christmas wreath come to life! 🙂

Here’s how Hello I Lived Here made the easy rustic Christmas wreath:

First I added lights to the easy rustic Christmas wreath.

Next, I wired/hot glued festive rustic decorations to bring the easy rustic Christmas wreath all together.

Finally, we put the wreath into place on the garage area (soon we will light it all up!)

And that’s a wrap!  See, it really was an easy rustic Christmas wreath! 😉  We hope you enjoy making an easy rustic Christmas wreath for your own home.  Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow as Hello I Live Here shows you what we did with our rustic planter box we made a couple weeks ago that was featured on Bob Vila Nations. Happy Easy Rustic Christmas Wreath making everyone!
