Pallet Christmas Tree
The recycled Pallet Christmas Tree above mixes rustic with modern flavours in a catchy fuse. If you love the model, look for unfinished boards, raw pieces of wood or panels from an old, unused fence. The patina of time gives them a natural, appealing look. Then, decide whether you want to gave the planks crossed or piled up. Both models are beautiful, but the latter has a plus: it occupies less space. As for the colours, decorations in white, silvery or gold hues add vivid contrast and charm.
Example of Minimalism
Offering the essential is relaxing. I very much enjoyed the picture above; it reminds me of whimsical fairy tales where doves carry letters, angels are visible, deer befriend with human beings and unicorns are not mythical creatures. All these ingredients can decorate a tree and make the winter holidays the most exciting periods of the year. Paint the common boards in white to obtain a clean, pure effect. You can decorate the tree by hanging the items or by fixing little shelves on it.
Enjoy a set of wooden trees
Although the set on the scene was designed for a show, I have to admit the trees are inspiring sources for Christmas decorations. Delicate, slim and austere, they create a natural setup, perfect for a mountain chalet or a country side residence. Their harsh, sober look warms with garlands of bulbs.
Green animates the interior
If you want to bring colorful spots inside, paint the natural wood in vivid green, serene blue or light pink. These hues add a contemporary feel to the interior and enliven the space. Moreover, you can enhance its beauty with globes, ginger bread, sparkling stars, wooden animals and many more. Slim and tiny, this tree fits perfectly in the hallway or at the entrance of your house.
What about using a bunch of reclaimed materials for decorations? Have a look on the list of benefits below and let us know if they are worth trying:
- you protect the environment and act in a sustainable manner for the future generations
- have a lot of fun while making the tree with family or friends
- save money
- practice your imagination and inventiveness
Bored of shinny sparkling globes? Try a collection of cute animals made of wood, paper or soft textiles. Deer, owls, squirrels, birds and rabbits are on my list. Children will have a lot of fun arranging them around.
Light will always make a room feel bright, cozy and relaxed. Decorate the tree with globes or lighting installations for a whimsical effect.
What about inspiring messages instead of common decorations? Believe in Magic, Joy, Santa Claus is coming to town and many more! :-)
