Christmas is just a few days away. You’ve got family and friends coming over. You haven’t done a thing around your house to add the farmhouse Christmas touch that you love.
You’re in luck. Here are three ways to go all out with farmhouse Christmas decor in just a few minutes, WITHOUT the tree!
In this blog you’ll learn how to create the farmhouse Christmas look with these quick hacks:
The first quick farmhouse Christmas decor idea is to create a Christmas village inspired tablescape.
For this, just go around your home and pull out all of the different holiday decor that you have onto your dining room table.
This could be tabletop trees, little scenic villages, trays, bowls, or ornaments. Whatever this may be for you, it’ll be used to create your “charcuterie style” tablescape.
To begin your table design, look for a textile. The reason why you start with this is to create a spot to focus all of your decor onto. It also adds some softness.
If you have one with sparkle, gold, or holiday glam, this is the perfect addition to your table. If not, honestly anything goes. Just use what you have.
Once you have your fabric down, start adding all of the different types of holiday decor that you might usually sprinkle all throughout your house, onto the center of your table.
To give structure to your Christmas village inspired tablescape, start with the tallest objects and then work your way out.
Then, use trays and bowls to house ornaments and smaller holiday decor. This creates a Christmas village feeling onto your dining table.
Whether you have a round or rectangular dining table, the concepts are the same:
Next, to achieve the farmhouse Christmas look in a pinch, reimagine how you use greenery.
Whenever we think of Christmas greens, we always think of our big tree, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be so large-scale.
We can bring the size down a bit with a tabletop tree instead. You can use one or multiple to be sprinkled around on buffets, coffee tables, or living room side tables.
All of these beautiful greens give you that perfect holiday feeling without having to go huge.
Pro tip: create groupings of 2-3 smaller scale trees and sprinkle additional holiday decor such as ornaments, reindeer, Santa, or a Christmas village right in front of your greenery.
You can do the same with garland on a buffet, or with holiday stems beautifully arranged in a vase.
Again, the trick here is to take all your decor and concentrate it into one section. That way, that one spot of your home screams out beautiful Christmas joy.
I know where you’re thinking, “Christmas time means you must have your ornaments out, right?”
Wrong. I’ve got a couple of hacks for you to enjoy your favorite farmhouse Christmas ornament collection all throughout your home.
The first hack is to create a staggered ornament display all throughout your curtain rods.
I know this sounds kind of kooky. However, it looks beautiful to arrange ornaments on ribbons and strings to create a collected display.
Have fun here with the colors, too. I personally like white, gray, and beige, but you can use red ribbon, black and white, gold, or even bright colors!
Alternatively, you can put ornaments in a bowl or an urn to enjoy the sparkle of your collection that way.
Or, you can simply scatter them all throughout your tablescape. They look beautiful either way, so don’t stress out about which direction you should take.
Lastly, a favorite hack of mine is to hang them from your chandelier with ribbon, or even a fishing line.
Talk about a “wow” Christmas! Between the tablescape and hanging ornaments from a chandelier, your family will surely feel the Christmas spirit.
You may be wondering about which color palette you should use this holiday season.
I’m here to tell you it does not matter.
We don’t want a delay in getting our holiday decor out, and this is an exercise of your creativity.
When you put this farmhouse Christmas decor together, the uniqueness, sparkle and magic of Christmas is going to come through.
These tips are an easy way to give you a collected, beautiful, cohesive feeling without a Christmas tree.
Between the Christmas Village tablescape, reimagining Christmas greenery, and displaying ornaments differently, you really do not even need a tree.
If you do all three of these ideas, you can do this project in less than 30 minutes. And if you try just one, it will take just under a few minutes to complete.
Now your guests will think you spent all month decorating your home and won’t even realize the tree is missing.
