A neutral Christmas tree with wooden ornaments, beaded garland and a gold buffalo check ribbon. A beautiful way to decorate a flocked Pencil tree. 

Flocked Pencil Tree

If there was ever a year to switch up my Christmas decor it was this year. I decided to decorate my flocked pencil tree with wooden ornaments, wood beaded garland and a gold buffalo check ribbon. Is neutral boring? Not for me it is elegant.

This flocked pencil tree is from King of Christmas. I bought it on an after Christmas sale a few years back. I love have two Christmas trees in the space. The pencil tree makes a great addition and tucks perfectly into this corner.

Recently I have been updating all my tree skirts to tree collars. This seagrass tree skirt is the perfect size for a pencil tree.   Are you looking for a tree collar? Check out some of my favorites here

Deciding on a theme

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. This year it was the White Pine collection at Joann’s. In fact that clear glass and wood finish bulb ornament inspired this whole tree. Everything else just came together. 

I picked up a few more ornaments from the White Pine collection, I also went into the craft section and found ornaments that were meant for painting. I bought the two tone wood beaded garland at Hobby Lobby and a few more wooden ornaments at local shops.

Tree Topper

Picking the perfect Christmas tree topper is all about scale. This Kurt Adler tree topper is perfect size for this tree. I am picky when it comes to tree toppers. Mostly because the commercial ones at big box stores tend to be a bit tacky. I usually will try to find something else to repurpose as a tree topper. My main tree I use a star that was a giant ornament I found at a local shop years ago and modified it to become a tree topper. Check out the mirrored star that was a wall hanging that I use on my sunporch 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 gold and ivory glittered buffalo check 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.

Growing up my parents always had two white doves on their Christmas tree and they were connected by a ring they both were carrying with their beaks. To me every tree I have needs a bird or 12. It’s just something that makes me nostalgic for that family tree.
