With National Christmas Tree Day just behind us and the holidays right around the corner, most readers probably already have their tree. Even so, it’s never too late to add a little extra pizzazz to your decorations, or to give them a personal twist. Here are several Christmas tree decorating ideas that will give you a new spin this year and for the years to come.
If you’re reevaluating your tree’s decorations, consider what theme will mean a lot to you and your family. Perhaps you like to travel a lot, in which case you could collect ornaments that represent your favorite voyages. If you like the outdoors, opt for DIY pinecone ornaments, deer, owls, and other woodsy decorations. Find what suits you best!
Think Outside the Tree Skirt
Instead of using traditional accessories like a tree skirt, why not mix it up? You can use a vintage tin or pale as a container for a tree for a rustic spin. Or, instead of sticking with a wintery color scheme, add a little spring to your Christmas tree. Decorate with a winding wreath of silk flowers for a fresh look.
For a new twist using what you already have, create an ombre rainbow effect by color coordinating your ornaments. Start with purple or red at the top and work your way through the spectrum. You’ll never look at your tree the same way again!
