The charm of the Boho Christmas tree lies in its ability to incorporate the traditional concept of the holiday tree with a bohemian twist.
It has an appreciation for the beauty found in simplicity and imperfections.
This style captures the essence of handmade craftsmanship, repurposed elements, and a harmonious fusion of colors, textures, and natural materials.
King of Christmas King Noble Fir
This year, I was given the incredible opportunity to work with King of Christmas again. I love this company and their beautiful high-quality Christmas trees.
I chose the King Noble Fir because I loved the realistic feel and vintage nod to Christmas’s past.
I planned for this tree to go in our bedroom which meant I could have some fun with the design because it didn’t need to be cohesive with the downstairs decor.
I knew right away that a vintage Boho look was perfect for this tree.
What is a Bohemian Christmas Tree?
Boho-inspired Christmas trees are fun because they bring a free-spirited, eclectic flair to the holiday season. They are known for incorporating natural elements, which is on trend right now!
What sets a Bohemian Christmas tree apart are its features:
- Handmade ornaments
- Natural materials such as feathers and wood
- Woven textiles like macramé
- Earth tones mixed with pops of color
Creating a Vintage Boho Christmas Tree
Part of the charm of the Boho style is the nod to vintage elements. These two styles marry to create an ambiance that transports you to a different era.
In order to create this look for my tree I chose a mixture of natural and vintage decor.
For the base of the tree I chose a woven white washed wood tree collar. The organic texture of the collar gave the tree a simple elegance.
If you were going for more of a Scandinavian style, you could really just stop here and forgo the decorations. This beautiful tree lends itself to a realistic natural beauty and paired with this rattan collar, it’s stunning!
For garland, I chose a wood beaded rope to drape generously around the tree. Again, this added a natural texture that is characteristic of the Boho style.
Vintage Boho Christmas Ornaments
For the ornaments, I kept it really simple. I used dried orange slices strung with fishing line that I made myself. You can find my post on how to make dried orange slices here.
I ordered blue velvet ribbon on a spool and tied simple bows that I placed throughout the tree to add color and a vintage flair.
Finally, I purchased rustic gold bells in two different shapes and sprinkled them throughout the tree. I love the little jingle they give off when you brush by the tree!
Tree Topper Star
I was stumped on how to finish off the tree until I found myself at Target one day, strolling through the Hearth and Hand section. I spotted this simple, vintage copper tree topper and knew it was exactly what I’d been looking for.
It completely tied together the vintage Boho look I was trying to accomplish with this tree.

Rustic Boho Christmas Tree: Natural Elements and Textures
Bringing nature indoors enhances the Bohemian vibe of your Christmas decor. If you’re wanting a more rustic Boho look, consider weaving the charm of nature by adorning your tree with dried citrus slices, cinnamon sticks, or slices of wood for a rustic scent and aesthetic.
Integrate woven baskets as tree skirts or use burlap ribbons intertwined with greenery for a textured, earthy look.
Introduce potted plants or succulents around the base of the tree to amplify the organic feel.
The idea is to embrace imperfections, so don’t shy away from showcasing raw, unrefined materials like jute, hemp, or even driftwood, creating a cozy, rustic Boho feel.
