I’ve had so much fun decorating our basement for Christmas this year! It’s already such a cozy space, so I went with that and used a lot of traditional holiday colors and softer textures. It has a slightly rustic vibe and we just love it!
I got new ornaments for the tree down here because I’ve never loved what I had on there before. We have a flocked tree and for years I had metallic tones on here that felt cold. I found some really cute items that warmed it right up, and it’s our favorite tree in the house this year (yes, there are numerous trees!).
I’ve had this burlap Merry Christmas ribbon for years and draped that in the tree first:

I’ve had it forever but found a similar one (in red, love it!) here
! I bought red and black gingham fabric covered bulbs that instantly warmed up the tree as well. (I’ll share similar products at the end of the post.)
I went through every bit of our Christmas decor this year and weeded out stuff we don’t use anymore — that’s when I found these reindeer cut outs in the same gingham design:
They are wood and sticky on the back — I left the paper on the back and then drilled a hole into each one to use them as ornaments:
I can’t remember where I got those, but I think maybe it was the Target dollar spot years ago.
My favorite find this year is this adorable berry and popcorn garland — too cute!!:
I found ours at Hobby Lobby but you can find it here
I filled in the rest of the tree with red, green and black ornaments and hung these large velvety stars behind it in the corner. I found those at Hob Lob as well:
The stars are so beautiful! I just love them. I love all of it! 🙂
You can see how I made that Noel knock off art here
(I made that forever ago!). That cute lumbar pillow was a HomeGoods find:
I’ll show you the rest of this room next week — it’s just the best. We’ve spent every evening down here for the past couple of weeks.
I believe this tree was from Walmart, but we’ve had it for a long time now. This flocked tree is super similar
, it may be the same one. I finally love how it’s decorated…only took me about six years! 😉
If you have more than one tree, do you have a favorite? I love the traditional decor on this one, but I think the black accents are what really pulls it together. It’s perfect down here with the moody wall color! (See more about that dark gray wall color here.)
