❊ ❊ Creative Christmas Tree Themes ❊ ❊
I'm so in the Christmas spirit and I've been collecting tons and tons of ideas for my idea book and wanted to share some of the beautifulness I have come across today.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I did finding them.
Santa's Workshop Christmas Tree
This festive Christmas tree is decorative and informative -- from the center of the tree a helpful arrow guides the way to Santa's workshop. To achieve a similar look, blend traditional favorites, such as red, green, and white ornament balls, with whimsical embellishments, such as shimmery reindeer ornaments and a quirky elf tree topper.
Editor's Lighting Tip: Use three 100-light sets per foot for a fresh tree, and 50-light strands for an artificial tree.
Family Photos Christmas Tree
Photocopy pictures, glue them to silver paper, and frame them with rickrack and other trims to turn your Christmas tree into a family scrapbook. Fill the boughs with small apples, kumquats, and vintage-style ornaments.
Glittery Gold Christmas Tree
Not all that glitters is gold. White lights, glittery cursive Christmas-word ornaments, and gleaming ornament balls make this decadent Christmas tree glow from within. Top with an oversize, shear bow with cascading tails for extra glamour.
Neutral Christmas Tree
Who says neutral Christmas decorationscan't stand out? Drenched in golden, copper, bronze, and cream-color hues, this twinkly tree boasts traditional Christmas beauty. Deck the tree with white Christmas lights, a gold-bead garland, copper and gold ornament balls, golden starfish, delicate off-white paper flowers, and wooden ornaments. For final touches, add a majestic crown-shape tree topper and decorate the base with brown paper-wrapped packages.
Colorful Christmas Tree
Dare to be different! Make your Christmas tree one of a kind by incorporating colorful ornaments instead of the expected traditional red and green ones. With white lights, a wispy gossamer garland, bright felt ornaments hung from polka dot ribbons, and handwritten Christmas greetings, this Christmas tree feels youthful and fun.
Blue-and-Silver Christmas Tree
A blue-and-silver-theme Christmas tree brings serenity to the often-hectic holiday. Soft white lights, silver beaded garland, and shear ribbon with blue polka dots provide a tranquil scene. Add sparkly silver penguin cutout ornaments, an oversize blue-and-white gossamer bow tree topper, and fun disco ball ornaments for a light-hearted Christmas tree.
Crafty Christmas Tree
Forget fancy! Decorate with handmade Christmas ornaments for a homey, cozy Christmas tree. Colorful candy cane, wreath, and snowflake ornaments crafted from pipe cleaners and animal ornaments made from Perler beads pop against the subtle white lighting. A multicolor beaded garland looks like a candy necklace against the evergreen and adds simple sweetness.
Frosty the Snowman Christmas Tree
Celebrate the season anew with a Frosty the Snowman-inspired Christmas tree. Craft or buy a papier-mache snowman head and place atop a white artificial Christmas tree. Space three black ornament balls down the center to create buttons, secure silver branches to the middle for arms, and position rain boots under the base to create feet.
Finish by wrapping a red scarf underneath Frosty's head and embellishing all over with transparent ornament balls and silver snowflake ornaments. Don't forget the black top hat tree topper!
Red-and-Gold Christmas Tree
Shimmery ornaments and eccentric accents give this traditional red-and-gold Christmas tree gusto. Soft white lights, chorister ornaments, and sprigs of plastic holly look fancy and festive, while the red ruffle tree topper, thick strands of gold and red sheer ribbons, and glittery gold music note, angel, and bow ornaments add a distinctly modern feel.
Paper Stars Christmas Tree
This Christmas tree is an all-star! Simple blue, red, yellow, and purple paper stars, decorated and strung from colorful ribbons on a Christmas tree, look friendly and festive. Multicolor Christmas lights and a printed-ribbon tree topper add more color to this easily crafted Christmas tree.
