My Home Style: Handmade, Global, Eclectic Christmas Tree
Find out how to create a handmade, global, eclectic Christmas tree with My Home Style. A fun blog hop series introducing various styles to inspire you!
Greetings friend! It’s time for the 3rd annual My Home Style blog hop Christmas tree edition hosted by my amazing and talented friend Casa Watkins Living. Lately we’ve been glued to the hip sharing A Very Global Christmas, 12 days of globally influenced DIYs and decorating tips.
But today we are teaming up with many other awesome bloggers to show you various styles of Christmas trees throughout the week. If you are coming from Casa Watkins Living’s Simple Boho Christmas Tree, welcome! We are a military family stationed in Japan and living in a traditional Japanese rental. I love sharing rental friendly decorating ideas and DIYs in hopes it inspires you to love your space!
A Handmade, Global, Eclectic Christmas Tree
Okay, let’s get down to business. Each of us has narrowed down our style to three words. I’ve used modern, contemporary classic, eclectic, glam, and others in the past but this year’s Christmas tree is all about handmade, global, and eclectic.
My Home Style: Handmade and Global
These two styles go hand in hand since most of my DIY ornaments are inspired by different countries and cultures. You can find links to the DIYs by clicking on the hyperlinks or photos below.
Handmade global DIY ornaments:
- DIY Japanese paint brush inspired ornaments,
- DIY Chinoiserie Chic ornaments (you can find this fun DIY HERE!)
- DIY ornaments updated with ribbon tape,
- and Nordic inspired mini hanging plant ornaments.
My Home Style: An Eclectic mix of old and new, store bought and DIY
You might have noticed a lot of dollar store snowflakes on my tree. Since our tree is older and branches are starting to look droopy, I filled in the gaps with snowflakes and cotton stuffing.
The soft textures goes well with natural ostrich feathers and fur ornaments.
All the neutrals really help the global inspired DIY ornaments pop! I love how the groupings of 3 wine color ornaments look like berries. 😉 And the cherry on top? A gorgeous Moravian star pendant.
The gift tags on our presents are another DIY from A Very Global Christmas! Can you believe we completed all our Christmas shopping before December 1st?
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I would love to hear what 3 words describe your Christmas tree style. Make sure to head over to Monica Wants It to see her gorgeous Christmas tree and check out an elegant, eclectic, old-world style tree. (I’ve had a sneak peek and it’s AMAZING!)
