December has arrived and it’s time to whip out those creative thinking caps of yours, because you would want your Christmas tree to look the prettiest and most unique amongst your BFFs! Be sure to check our Pinterest for an extensive list of creative ideas and examples. Here are a few tips to get you started!
This is the most important part of the process. You begin with deciding on a theme. It can be something traditional like winter wonderland theme, where all your ornaments and decorations are in white, gold, or silver, or a candy cane theme, where the color code of your entire tree is in red and white. However, if you are a trend setter and over-achiever, try something more unconventional, like a Tiffany & Co. themed tree, or a bohemian chic themed tree, or a seaside Christmas tree, where all your ornaments are seashells and the color code of the tree is turquoise and beige.
After you decided on your theme, your selection of ornaments, decorations, and lighting should all follow that same code. For example, if you have chosen the winter wonderland theme, your ornaments can include a snowman made out of felt, pine cones painted in white, and more! Which should be accompanied by warm yellow lighting and white ribbons to bring out the seasonal festivity. You can get really creative with the ornaments as you can craft your own if you couldn’t find the suitable ones in stores. You can use music sheets to make a snowman ornament, or old clothing to make a Christmas tree ornament. Create a one-of-a-kind Christmas tree that will leave you family and friends in awe.
The roots and trunk of a Christmas tree may ruin your entire creation so be sure to pick out a skirt that can act as both a cover-up and a padding layer that keeps your valuable Christmas presents intact. You can select a simple red circular fabric to do the job, but if you really want to stand out, especially if you have a dedicated theme like winter wonderland, you can choose a tree skirt with intricate designs, such as a beige-colored tree skirt with sequins or 3D designs.
This is the final touch of your masterpiece. Depending on your theme, you can break away from the traditional star or angel tree toppers, and go for more elaborate decorations and design. For example, if you chose the candy cane theme, you can gather a supply of red and white decorations, ribbons, and even a Christmas box to assemble a topper of your own. For the seaside theme, you can pick out a star fish decoration and decorate it according to your taste. The possibilities are essentially limitless!
So bring out the artistic inner fashionista of yours and start decorating your own Christmas tree! We would love to see your creations, so be sure to leave a picture on our Facebook page!
