A slim pencil tree in the living room for Christmas. Perfect tree for a small space.

I never knew that having two Christmas trees in the living room would bring me so much joy. With the renovation and the wall coming down the space is so much bigger it allowed me to tuck a pencil tree into this corner and cover it in buffalo check! This buffalo check pencil Christmas tree coordinates perfectly with my main tree, buffalo check flocked Christmas tree.
Adding ribbon to your Christmas tree
I usually wrap my tree in ribbon but I found myself looking at half a roll of ribbon which was not nearly enough. 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 might look better. What’s a buffalo check pencil Christmas tree without buffalo check ribbon?
ADD IN FLORAL PICKS.
This will help your tree look much fuller especially if it is an older tree that has lost some of it’s fullness. This also helps add some dimension. I like using pine cones and red berries. These buffalo check balls and bells are actually picks too. You can usually find these on sale at the craft store.
Coordinating your Christmas Decor
Since my space is now so open I tried to coordinate all of my Christmas decor inside the house. I did this by using some of the same elements. From ribbon to buffalo check pattern, red berries, pine cones, red mercury glass and flocking. Buying multiple roles of the same ribbon will help carry it through the space affordably.
