{ Our Simple $5 Dollar Charlie Brown Christmas Tree }

Heyyyy everyone, welcome back!! I'm so sorry about this week being a little sparse on material here on TQS! We've been super busy & just have been getting caught up with life, work & the holidays. 2016 has been one heck of a year for our little family & just now ending it out it seems to be really changing with so many new changes/opportunities etc.., which is super exciting for us!!!! Anyways with all the new stuff happening in just about every aspect of our life these days, I've went super simple with our Christmas decor this year! I mentioned a few days ago in our 2016 Holiday Home Tour HERE here that we have 5-6 trees usually..I cut it down this year & wasn't planning on putting one up in the upper living room, but then I spotted the cutest little misfit tree from Dollar General!! It was a whopping $5 for a 4ft unlit tree...I couldn't pass it up! I decorated really simple with some leftover rustic cream bulbs from +IKEA USA  last year & potted it in an old crock with some simple crisp white lights! Come see this crazy little "Charlie Brown" tree..



I just popped off the 3 "feet" on the tree stand & used an old tan/ white furry coat to wrap around the tree in the crock! Super easy peasy & thrifty! You can see all the different ways to pot your tree this year & how here HERE


It's so sparse, but funny & cute at the same time! It's perfect for our cozy rustic living room & I love the tree lit up at night paired with the fireplace! The burlap bow was from a gift I reused!



The pillows are from +IKEA USA  too. I got them on sale for $3 each with the inside!! The wood slices were free & the wood table legs I salvaged from one of our manyyyy kitchen tables haha!


I picked the lights up +Walmart  for under $10! 




Something about having a tree in the living room this year made it so much cozier! I hope you guys gathered some simple cozy inspiration from this post! How did you pot your Christmas tree this year? Did you just use a traditional tree skirt or something different? 

Wishing you all a lovely FRIDAYYY!
