Can you even believe that Christmas is almost here! I still have some baking to do, and packages to mail, but I think the shopping and wrapping are done!!! Hallelujah!!! Are you finished, or still in progress? It’s OK-it’s not the 24th yet! You still have some time! (Total aside-have you ever been to the mall Christmas Eve? I had to go one year, I can’t remember why, but I was the only woman there!!! It was packed full of men, you would’ve thought it was the Super Bowl or something!) I digress!!! This is actually a tour of my home last year! My little red plaid Christmas tree is going viral over on Pinterest (I have no idea why!), and I realized that I never did a Red Plaid Christmas Farmhouse Tour!!!

Red Plaid Farmhouse Living Room
We made this shelf out of wood that was in our scrap pile. It was already perfectly weathered, and I didn’t have to do a thing to it! We used these brackets from Amazon, and I spray painted them gold. A simple garland, a few strings of wood beads, a trio of brass candle holders, and a farmhouse print were added. This lamp was a 1960’s thrift store find, and you can see how I turned it into mercury glass here.
Red Plaid Farmhouse Christmas Tree
Ribbon almost always sets the theme and color scheme for my Christmas theme. I try to change things up every year, and I usually don’t have to go further than the ribbon section for inspiration!
I found the Joy to the World ribbon, and fell in love with it! Then I bought the red plaid ribbon and a slightly wider burlap ribbon to layer. Be sure to use wired ribbon for this look!
Cut equal lengths of both the plaid and burlap ribbon, bend into an O shape and wire onto these floral picks. Then, I just tucked the picks into the tree.
For this tree, I took long sections of wired edge ribbon, and just pinched the ribbon every so often in equal lengths, and tucked it into the tree. I had to wire a few of the tucks to branches to make it stay.
On the coffee table, I placed a large tray made from reclaimed barn wood. I added a small Christmas tree, a candle, and an antique silver bowl. Ornaments and faux pine sprigs make great fillers!
My husband made this blanket ladder from our old fence posts. You can see more projects to make with fence posts here! For Christmas, I used it hold our stockings. Amazon has so many great knit stockings that are so affordable! I adorned the stockings with more ribbon and some faux pine and pinecones.
Red Plaid in the Kitchen
These are the shelves in our kitchen. I added more ribbon and faux pine sprigs along with some ornaments. My mother in law made this Santa in a ceramics class when she was in high school in 1973, and gave it to us! It is one of our favorite Christmas treasures!
This cute little stand is an easy DIY that requires no tools to make! See how here!
Ornaments and little bottle brush trees are great to decorate trays for Christmas!
Add a little house ornament to a jar with some Epsom salt for snow for the cutest Christmas decor! I actually gave this as a gift, and they use the jar year round!
These cute little tea towels make great personalized gifts! Get the full directions here!
Red Plaid Farmhouse Entryway
I added a wood bead garland and a little banner to give some Christmas cheer to my entryway mirror. The basket is actually for a bathroom, but it looks so cute holding the little trees.
I cut strips of flannel fabric and glued them onto leftover ornaments to make these cute plaid balls. You can see the full directions here, as well as 8 other things to do with leftover ornaments!
Farmhouse Christmas Front Porch
Aren’t these pillow covers from Amazon just the cutest! They come in a 4 pack for a great price, and did great outside! I combined two garlands together to get this full look.
I couldn’t find a layering mat that I liked, so I bought a plaid tablecloth and made one. I also made a table runner and place mats out of it! I used this iron on fabric tape so that I didn’t have to sew.
We received this fresh wreath as a Christmas gift, and it was a perfect accent to our red plaid farmhouse Christmas porch.
These are the other two pillow covers that come in the set of four. They are just the cutest!
Red Plaid Farmhouse Christmas in the Loft
We kept it simple and cozy in the loft since this is where the kids hang out and watch movies. These plaid flannel pillow covers are also from Amazon, and are so cozy! I paired it with this throw and a large rustic tray of pine cones and faux cedar stems.
Red Plaid Farmhouse Christmas Bedroom
The bedroom was a lot of fun to decorate! I’d never decorated our bedroom for Christmas before. For the wrapped trees, I cut a 12″ x 12″ square of flannel fabric. I wrapped the base of the tree, and tied it with twine. For the pom pom garland, I bought a bunch of toy snow balls (that were just a big puff of chenille), and strung them with a big needle and chenille yarn. See that little glimpse of plaid under the red throw blanket? It’s just a piece of fabric! No one knows it wasn’t sewn!
Red Plaid Farmhouse Christmas in the Laundry Room
Even the laundry room did not escape the plaid treatment!!! You can see the complete tour here!
