Colorful, Crafty and Whimsical Fall Christmas Tree

Fall is almost here.  Maybe it is still 100 degrees in Texas, but the rumor is fall is on the way.  Let’s celebrate with some fall Christmas tree decorating ideas.  This is not my first time at the autumn Christmas tree decorating rodeo, but it might be my favorite.  I know I say that every time, but this time I mean it.  I’m kinda in love with my colorful Christmas tree full of non-traditional fall colors and DIY pumpkins.  PLUS… I’ve got hot gossip to share.  Keep reading!

This is a sponsored post with Treetopia.  I am their brand ambassador, but all opinions and obnoxiously colorful trees are my own.

Is there such a thing as hot fall Christmas tree gossip?  

Are you ready for it?  

Treetopia just added another brand ambassador to our over-the-top Christmas tree decorating party.  I’m super duper excited to welcome my long time friend and neighbor Kara Whitten of A Kailo Chic Life.  To celebrate we are both decorating a fall Christmas tree to usher in the season.

Yeah for a Yellow Autumn Christmas Tree

My autumn Christmas tree is a Treetopia Basics yellow Christmas tree.  It should come as no surprise that Kara and I see fall in a less traditional way than most.  Sure my tree has pumpkins, they are just ones I made with yarn, stenciled felt, pompoms and black and white check fabric.  We both live in Austin so we have to pretend to know what a fall tree looks like.  Combine that with my love of color, crafts and kitsch and well this sexy beast is the kind of fall themed Christmas tree you get!

DIY Fall Christmas Tree Ideas

Add this tree to the list of all the yellow Christmas trees I’ve loved before!  Perhaps hot pink and teal are not the first things that come to mind when you think of an autumn inspired Christmas tree – but would you really expect anything less from me?  I want to recreate this exact tree after Halloween so I can have a Thanksgiving Christmas tree too!

I made several of the decorations on my fall Christmas tree that I will share later, but in the meantime these fun DIY fall tree decor ideas should get you in the mood to think about decorating your own.

    When I lived at home with my mom, we used to keep our tree up all year, and decorate it for the different holidays, but nothing ever like this! These trees are so gorgeous, and fun. Pinned.

    Absolutely Love your Fall Tree!! Stunning! I have several Trees up in my house year round and decorate them for various Holidays and Seasons but if you are decorating a Seasonal Tree, I would like to ask you not to call it a Christmas tree as It is not decorated for Christmas! It is a seasonal Tree ……..Thanks for sharing!!
