As soon as winter gets installed comfortably, we start thinking about Christmas and picturing all the great things that come with it, like the Christmas tree and all the cute decorations we’ll use. But, despite all this enthusiasm, we rarely give a lot of thought to how we’ll actually be decorating the tree. But maybe this year will be different so let’s take a look at a few off-beat Christmas trees you could replicate in your own home.
Pick a color theme and go with it. Try something fresh and pure like a combination of white and silver. All the decorations will look really chic if you pick a beautiful natural tree.
Or choose something a bit more festive. Red is a popular color for Christmas. Mix it with white or silver and create a spiraling look where the colors twist around each other.
If you’d rather use an artificial Christmas tree, perhaps you’d like to get a white one this year. You don’t need a lot of ornaments to make it look beautiful. It’s enough to choose bold and vibrant colors. This one has a really chic and feminine appeal with all the coral, pink and yellow accents.
If you prefer something a bit more formal and elegant, go for gold. It’s a really classy color when used right and not excessively. But the Christmas tree is often very ornate so it can easily accommodate a bunch of golden decorations without looking kitschy.
This white tree is decorated with a bunch of patterned ornaments. But the really great thing about it is that there’s only one accent color: red. This way, even if the patterns and shapes vary, the tree still looks beautiful. It also has a modern allure.
Because the tree is already green, we almost never thick to use green as an accent color when we decorate it. However, it would actually look really good that way. Play with different shades of green and mix in some white and yellow as well.
Of course, there’s no rule you should only use a certain number of different colors when decorating your Christmas tree. So why not use them all? That would sure look interesting.
When you decorate the tree, don’t just focus on the cute ornaments, bows and garlands. One of the most beautiful things about the Christmas tree is the view you get when you close the lights and see it glow in the night.
Go with a more natural and organic look this year and decorate your Christmas tree wth artificial flowers, leaves and branches. You can cover the whole tree with this type of ornaments.
Another fun idea is to use oversizd ornaments. These giant snowflakes sure look lovly even if the tree is not particularly large. Add a few cute snowmen and other decorations as well to make it cute for the kids.
Make an advent Christmas tree and decorate it with all sorts of gifts for each day. It’s an interesting theme to explore if it applies to you.
A snowman tree could look really fun, especially for the kids. This means you could get a small tree for the kids’ room and allow them to decorate it this way.
Of course, it could also be fun to make a few of the decorations yourself. Try making some origami ornaments for example and hang them in the tree along with the others you already have. You can reuse them the next year if you preserve them correctly.
