5 Fun Theme Ideas for Your Christmas Tree Decor This Year
Oh, Christmas tree—oh, Christmas tree…what are you supposed to be? With the holidays ever-looming in the near future, it’s never a bad time to start thinking about how to decorate your Christmas tree. While most people opt for a mix and match of their classic ornaments over the years, it could be fun to go with a theme this year. Here are 5 Christmas tree décor ideas to spruce up your holidays.
“Deck the Halls” with Disney
Disney is all aglow when it comes to new releases of annual ornaments for Christmas trees. You can bet all of your favorites are represented. From oldies, like Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, to newbies, like Wall-E and Eve, or the brand-new Alice in Wonderland movies—you can build a theme around the Disney favorites that make your heart sing. There are even mini Disney ornaments for little trees on a countertop, or in an office.
Imitate Tree Décor from Your Favorite Christmas Movie
Christmas time means Christmas movies, like A Christmas Carol or A Christmas Story. And, if you consider yourself a movie buff, you could go all out with tree décor from your film favorites. For instance, Christmas tree décor from How the Grinch Stole Christmas might have a bunch of Dr. Seuss-style swirls, odd instruments, red and green flash lights, and loads of tinsel.
Rainbow is the Way to Go
If red and green never struck your fancy, try a rainbow of colors for your Christmas tree. Snag some rainbow candy canes, wrap your tree in twinkling rainbow lights, and drape a super-vibrant, colorful fabric around the base of your tree. You could even DIY some ornaments with acrylic paints in a plethora of bright rainbow hues.
Go Nuts with Twinkling Lights and Tons of Glitter
If flashy is your Christmas style, there can never be too much glitter and twinkles. Go nuts with the lights and throw that glitter on by the handfuls. Ornaments-wise, aim for glitz with sparkles, rhinestones, and light-catching silver tones.
Keep it Simple and Classic in Reds and Greens
Sometimes simple is the best way to be. Red and green is still a classic Christmas mash-up of colors. You could deck your tree with sashes of red and green, but in varying shades, like deep red and lime green. Or, go completely timeless with the usual forest green and rich “Santa Claus” red.
The whole point of this article is to rev your imagination and inspire you to have fun with your Christmas tree décor. So, take these ideas and run with them. Make your own.
