Western Holiday Decor Ideas
Sometimes it can be a challenging to try and put a western Christmas theme together from pages and pages of individual item listings from many different categories.
Cowboy? Western?Southwestern? Cowgirl? Where to begin?
Not everyone needs or wants a specific western style. "Western" is a fun, broad theme allowing you to mix together anything from Victorian to shabby chic but sometimes folks like to focus on a specific area of western, maybe to reflect home or office decor or to highlight a collection or special event.To make Holiday life a bit easier (and who doesn't want that) I have assembled here several groupings of to show how some of our ornaments from different categories, work together to reflect a certain styles. For instance, our horse category has many ornaments that would work nicely on a cowboy tree. I have even included some ideas that can be used as year-round home decor because really, who wants western just once a year? Also included are links to the items and I will note any important size information.
This page will be updated from time to time as new inventory arrives.
Normally you would think that chilis belong just in the southwestern category but this stocking has a wonderful burlap center which lets it mosey on over to the country look as well.
When you pair it up with the wood ornaments you get a great warm look. We also have some wired burlap ribbon that can be tucked into tree, wreath or garland.
The items here were photographed together so the size relationship is correct. The boot ornament is 6". Cowboy Boot Stocking Y'all Ornament Wood Cowboy Boot
For that Old West look, brown is your go-to color. You can do so much around that simple chocolate background. Here I have taken our horseshoe wreath and combined it with a deep red star which has a horseshoe center & a crackle finish which helps us out with our old west look. There are also 2 sets of spur ornaments and 2 rustic turquoise color cowboy boot ornaments. In this case I would keep the star and spurs on the wreath and keep the boots nearby in tree or garland maybe. These items were photographed together so they are in correct relation in size. The Wreath is 22".

For this vintage little cowboy look the focus is on bright happy colors and a sense of imagination gone cute. I thought of Opey Taylor and the rest was easy.
The cowboy dog gives a bit of humor and the sign adds a touch of personality and a different shape so everything not a figurine ornament.
I would add a healthy dash of bandana ribbon to this look and enlist the aid of any small teddy bear that seems to need a job - give em' a cowboy hat and tuck him in your tree (the bandana ribbon makes a cute pint size scarf for him too).
These items were not photographed together so this picture does not show true size relation, check with each listing for dimensions.

Southwestern style can be diverse. There is the easy casual elegance of turquoise and silver or the magical earthy warmth of the Painted Desert colors and of course, the firey reds, reflective of the southwest's most famous resident, the chili pepper.
Here we have a bit of a blend. The belt buckle ornaments are both cowboy and southwestern, as is the warm colored boot - the skull is very old west and the concho works well in both southwestern and Native American.
These ornaments were photographed together - the boot is 4" tall.

Fun with Cowboy Christmas
Group ornaments together on the tree to create interest but don't stop there, ornaments also make fun tabletop displays too. Let your imagination play.
