A non traditional Christmas Tree. When Christmas meets glam! Who said you couldn’t decorate a Christmas tree pink! Check out how I decorated this glam and pink Pencil Christmas Tree.
Well I am spending so much time in my office at home these days I figured why not get another Christmas tree and decorate it to match! This glam and pink pencil Christmas tree may have been a little out of my normal tradition comfort zone but man did I have fun decorating it!
At the beginning of stay at home I tackled this office/guest room make over. Replacing the guest bed with a daybed, adding a desk and finally putting up a wallpaper accent wall. I needed it to become a multi-functional space but I also needed a space that I wanted to be in for 40+ hours a week.

As soon as I was done with the room this Summer I pictured a pencil tree tucked into the corner. I kept telling myself not to spend the money and then I found a pencil tree that didn’t break the bank. Are you looking for affordable Christmas trees? Check out some of my favorites here.
DECIDING ON A THEME- pink pencil Christmas tree
Now I am known for switching up my themes on my Christmas trees. But how do I pick a theme every year? I look for things that inspire me. In this room I knew I wanted the tree to match the colors in the wallpaper and bedding. A glam and pink pencil Christmas tree naturally was perfect for this wallpaper. I started with finding wired ribbon in a beautiful dusty metallic pink. And finding ornaments in pink, rose gold, periwinkle, teal and silver. I also added in some vintage ornaments I had been wanting to use for years.
ADDING RIBBON TO YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE
I usually wrap my regular size tree in ribbon but with a pencil tree I don’t love the way it looks. So I cut the ribbon into about foot long strips and tucked them into the tree. It looks great and you would never know the difference. I actually think it looks better.
This ribbon is a beautiful dusty metallic pink wired ribbon from Michaels. It is 2.5 inches wide and the roll was about 25 feet. I used less than a roll on this whole tree.
What truly makes this tree glam is the ornaments I decided to use. Finding blinged out flowers with gems and seed beads, using glitter and mirrored glass ornaments. Mixing shapes and sizes of ornaments is important on any tree you decorate. If you just decorate your tree with the same color balls it’s going to lack dimension and visual interest.
Ornaments should be interesting so the eye will wander and take everything in. I love mixing in vintage ornaments. Over the years I have been collecting these ornaments from yard sales and thrifting. I have a bunch of these Santa’s with different colored hats. How cute are they? One day I hope to have enough vintage ornaments to do an entire tree in vintage ornaments.
ADD IN FLORAL PICKS.
Floral picks help your tree look much fuller especially if it is an older tree that has lost some of it’s fullness. Adding these also helps add some dimension. On my main tree I like using pine cones and red berries. For this tree I found pink glittered berries and pine cones from Joanns. I pulled them a part and added them through out the whole tree.
Every time I post about this room I get questions on where everything is from. I’ve gathered the sources for the most asked items below. Once I find the perfect desk I will share the whole room in it’s own dedicated blog post. Until then enjoy this sneak peek.
