It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! And can you believe we are wrapping up our 12 Trees of Christmas? We have decked the halls, been singing Christmas carols & enjoying all the cozy Merry & Bright this holiday season. And today, I am sharing the 12th tree in this years 12 Trees of Christmas- a snowy red & silver barn Christmas tree.
Snowy Red & Silver Barn Tree
This tree is full of merry magic. From rich red baubles to gray velvet ribbon to green mercury glass and vintage beaded garland – it is making me so happy. And as you can see, the silkies were enjoying it a bit as well.
This tree is such a fun one to decorate. I was inspired by a snowy white backdrop dotted with bold and beautiful reds and a little bit of whimsy.
Sharing an IG video with a close up & behind the scenes:
Frosted Christmas Tree
This is a chunky snowy / frosted Christmas tree – and with traditional red- it was the perfect tree for the barn. You might remember I decorated this tree with vintage ornaments here last year as well. Frosted trees are favorites of mine every year and I couldn’t resist bringing this one back up to the barn for an encore- and I am loving how this snowy red Christmas tree turned out!
Layers of Reds
From red baubles in several sizes to red glass garland and red beads- this tree has a mix of new and vintage ornaments and other treasures.
The red beaded garland is a vintage thrift store find- a package of about 17-18′. I wasn’t sure what tree it might go one- but it came home with me and it was perfect for layering with the red and gold and green vintage inspired glass garland.

Another mix and mingle- these red berries are new and vintage thrift store finds. I found several old sugared picks in a bucket at the thrift store and mixed those with some new picks. The sugar frosted picks look like they have ice while the new ones have a more bold dusting of snow.
Vintage Velvet Gray Ribbon
Ribbon is a theme over here this year for sure, isn’t it? I can’t help it. Literally obsessed with the pretty velvet ribbons I found and have pretty much wanted to use them everywhere.
I used just a few on this tree and love how silvery it looks against the frosted tree.
A Touch of Whimsy
For just a touch of whimsy- I wanted to add even more magic to this scene and tucked loose strands of twinkle lights under the tree on the skirt. They bring a huge amount of ambiance -especially as it gets darker out.
