A Nice Christmas Tree is a essential in a home this time of year because it is the centerpiece of the Holiday. Weather your tree is bright, traditional or on a budget there is no excepting in having a Christmas Tree even here at the Farmhouse.
I do not have a lot of money nor space to create a gorgeous Christmas Tree. Today, I like to share my tips and tricks in creating a Small Farmhouse Christmas Tree on a Budget that anyone can get inspiration to create.
Steps on Creating a Small Farmhouse Christmas Tree on a Budget
First when creating a Farmhouse Christmas Tree Keep color scheme consistent. Too much color on a Farmhouse Christmas Tree will be overwhelming and look clutter.
Choose one to two color for your small Christmas Tree on a Budget such as Blue and White. Brown and White can bring a rustic feel to a small Farmhouse Christmas Tree and warm your space.
Bigger is Better
Second, I am not telling you to go out and buy the biggest tree out there but, think about the space such as ceiling height.
Often a small space may have tall ceiling and a Farmhouse Christmas Tree can get lost. Elevate your Christmas Tree on a Table, bench or other surface. Make sure the Christmas Tree is secure to the surface.
If elevating your tree is not an option think about the furniture around the tree, extending the decorating to a chair or couch by add big fluffy pillows or ribbon to the top of a chair.
Remember to add a skirt or collar to the base of the Christmas Tree use what you already have such as a blanket, basket, crock or scarf.
A Small Farmhouse Christmas Tree on a Budget can be done by adding festive and fun ornaments.
Adding ornaments to a Christmas Tree does not have to be expensive. You can find many ornaments at flea markets, secondhand store and your Grandma’s Attic that are pennies but, to tie it all together with your color scheme my need careful thinking.
If you are doing a red and white tree add Candy Canes. Candy Canes are classic and perfect ornament that a box of twelve candy canes cost under five dollars.
A brown, white, and/or green Farmhouse Christmas tree can use elements from the outdoors. Adding earthly elements such as pinecones, branches, and twigs can bring charm to a Budget Friendly Christmas Tree.
Finally, ribbon can make such an impact to any Christmas Tree on a Budget. Ribbon can be found anywhere and reused in so many situations. Ribbon Wrapped around package and placed under a Christmas Tree are gorgeous. I have seen very expensive tree with brown paper packages tied up with ribbon from plaid to white satin. Ribbon makes such a statement!
Tying, draping, cascading ribbon on a Christmas Tree is elegant, and cheap. A Burlap Ribbon tie into a bow makes a pretty Christmas Tree Topper.

Right when you walk into a room in your Christmas Farmhouse that tree should demand attend. I do not like to move a lot of furniture nor rearrange my homestead to accommodate my Christmas Tree. My Christmas Tree is often place as if it was always there.
Place your Christmas Tree across from a doorway, window or large mirror. When the Christmas Lights are on the door way, window or mirror will give the illusions that your Tree is bigger and look expensive.
