Getting ready to decorate for Christmas this year; I was faced with decorating six trees and was looking for something special to do for each tree which is how this Pioneer Woman Christmas Tree theme came to life! It’s easy to fall in love with Ree Drummond’s colorful country style. After my trip earlier this year to Pawhuska, Oklahoma to visit the Mercantile; it was super easy to be hooked on all things Pioneer Woman. It’s perfect theme for a rustic and whimsical Christmas tree…
how to decorate a christmas tree pioneer woman style
Start with anchor pieces. I used vintage sifters that I found over on the Facebook marketplace. A couple of them were hand painted with flowers and cherries which are two of the patterns Ree uses in her amazing designs.
- Add some color with a few no-sew fabric christmas trees (see instructions below)
- Fill empty holes in the tree with flower stems to add a pop of color.
- Cute spatulas, colorful whisks, utensils and vintage rolling pins give the tree a pioneer vibe.
- Pot holders and mitts make great little fillers for the tree. The ones I used are from the Dollar General and mimic the look of all things Pioneer Woman.
- The messy bow tree topper is a super fun way to “top” it off. I used multiple fabric scraps in multiple colors and patterns to create a one of a kind messy bow tree topper. This messy bow can be found in several DIY projects of mine and complete instructions on how to make a messy bow are HERE.
- An older colorful patchwork quilt makes the easiest “frontier” look for a tree skirt.

- Using a marker trace the tree pattern onto one side of the fabric.
- Trim the fabric pieces at the same time into the shape of the tree leaving a bit of space outside of the lines for gluing.
- Glue down around most of the edges leaving a large enough opening for adding polyfill.
- Add a small amount of polyfill to make a pillow. Use a pencil or stick to tuck the polyfill into the tip of the tree.
- Using a little glue, seal the last edge being careful not to burn your fingers.
