Do you have a farmhouse aesthetic? You can easily make your tree match it. Rustic Christmas tree ideas come in various colors and design schemes. The goal is to create a tree that looks both modest and festive. Using neutral colors is the most popular way to go about it today, but that’s not all there is out there. We decided to round up dozens of handsome trees for you to get a better idea of the possibilities and limitations of decorating rustic Christmas trees.
We uncovered so many clever ideas that take the tree to a whole new level. Some trees are very traditional, while others feel both fresh and new as well as timeless and elegant.

Simplicity is bliss with this rustic Christmas tree that is decorated with just pine cones and a burlap ribbon. Understated decorations really work well.
The person who shared this Christmas tree image explained that they went with a “cozy cabin theme.” We think they nailed it. Black and white ribbons prove a timeless and classic touch.
Neutrals for the Win
We find a cream theme for this rustic Christmas tree that is as inoffensive as they come. Keep things bright by trying something similar.
When we think of rustic design metallics are not front of mind but this tree proves that it totally works. It’s decorated in a gold theme but manages to look humble instead of flashy.

How fun is this one? It’s a very bright tree with a kiss of pink peeking through. How about those mushroom and tree shapes that surround the tree? Magical!
Gold, cream, and wood all look fabulous on this modest Christmas tree. We love those candle-shaped lights.
We can’t get enough of the skinny, AKA Charlie Brown Christmas tree trend. This one is all about the baked goods as it is studded with gingerbread men and houses. Delicious!
“I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas…” If you would have suggested a blue theme for a tree, we would have been skeptical. But, this tree is proof that unorthodox colors are on the table.
Classic Red and White
Green and red are contrasting colors which means that they really pop next to one another. This stylish tree has gone the classic route with red and white decorations.
How about that antique Santa face? What about that metal star? It’s the little things on this tree that really make it stand out.
What a cool effect these twigs wrapped around this tree make. It’s our first time encountering such a decoration, and we’re big fans.
Wood, red, black, and white swirl together in this charming Christmas tree that’s topped with a moose. Is a moose better than a star? We would argue yes.

“Thank goodness you’re home… the Christmas tree fainted,” this Christmas meme of a dog and a tree is captioned. Our pets really do not know what to do with a big tree in their homes.
You’re a Mean One
“The longer I’m a mom the more I relate to The Grinch,” this meme says. Can any other moms out there relate? We’ve been Grinch-ing for years now.
There are so many wonderful Christmas memes out there for those of us who prefer Halloween over Christmas. “When [you’re] ready for Christmas but not quite done with Halloween,” this meme says above an image of a snowman being cannibalized by its snow children.
A Holiday Life Hack
“Christmas time is great because you can shout ‘Don’t come in here!’ and people assume you’re wrapping presents, instead of just wanting to be left alone,” this person shared via tweet. We’re going to take this advice and run with it.
The Wait Is Almost Over
Some folks can’t wait for the Christmas season to start, usually signaled by the start of the month of December. In this Christmas meme, we find Will Ferrell in human form and half-human form. “Me tonight,” the meme says, joking about the transformative power of the holiday season.
Party In the Back…
We find a “front of the Christmas tree” image versus a “back of the Christmas tree” image in this Christmas meme that is all too real. We’re all hiding our least favorite ornaments and tiny bottles of booze back there, right?
For Best Gift-Giving Results:
Here is one of our favorite Christmas memes we stumbled across. This one’s for the parents who are doing the holiday correctly. “Every mom on Christmas while you’re opening up that gift they swore they weren’t getting you,” the meme says above a little boy with a cheeky expression. How cute!

They Love a Christmas Tree
“Wreck the tree and blame the doggie, falalalala lala la la,” this Christmas meme says above an image of two cats. We love this remix of the classic Christmas carol, “Deck the Halls.”
Knowing Your Worth

“When you’ve already destroyed the Christmas tree and now it’s time to take down Santa’s village,” the caption for this Christmas meme says. We’re treated to a rather sinister-looking cat seemingly plotting more destruction. Bravo!
The Office is the gift that keeps on giving as the TV show is used for countless memes to this very day. “Me trying not to tell people what I got them for Christmas,” the text says. This one’s for those of us who find it hard to keep a secret.
“Maybe using ‘Let It Snow’ wrapping paper wasn’t the best idea,” the meme says over an image of an unfortunate surprise message. This Christmas meme makes us think twice about buying wrapping paper with any text on it.
The Splendor of It All
“I love nature this time of year,” this meme says over images of Christmas tree-shaped sweets. Who else is in it for that tree-shaped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup? It’s the real reason for the season as far as we’re concerned.
“Me: I hate dressing up for Christmas parties,” this Christmas meme says before saying, “Also me:” above an image of a woman dressed in a Christmas tree gown made of actual foliage. If you cherish your Christmas outfits, this meme’s for you.

A Cannon Christmas

You Know That Feeling
With an assist from Christian Bale, we find one of the most delightful Christmas memes ever. “When you’re wrapping Christmas presents and the scissors start to glide,” the caption reads. Who else gets chills when it happens?
“I did not celebrate Christmas as a child,” this meme imagines Bette Davis saying. “That’s because Jesus wasn’t born yet,” it imagines Joan Crawford quipping. This is made even funnier when you account for the years-long feud between the two actors.
We find a Christmas meme that really gets us in this one. “Getting clothes for Christmas as a kid,” it reads next to a sad image of SpongeBob. “Getting clothes for Christmas as an adult,” it says next to an ecstatic SpongeBob. Who else loves getting clothes over the holidays?
Sharing Is Caring
“A Christmas Carol is the heartwarming tale of how rich people must be supernaturally terrorized into sharing,” the caption reads. Where is the lie? We love a meme that offers perspective.
Discover Your Elf Name
Here’s a fun game meme that will help you uncover your Elf Name. Pass this Christmas meme along to a kid and they will surely get a kick out of it as well. Angel Twinkle Brain has a ring to it, right?
