It’s time to hop onto the rainbow Christmas tree train! Green trees are lovely, but there's a reason why humans also gave us gaudy multicoloured artificial Christmas trees. Whether it may be pink, purple, yellow, or orange, colourful Christmas trees are a sure way to get your dinner guest talking.
Of course, rainbow trees aren't for everyone when it comes to Christmas. And we do admit that it’s a loud statement, but if you want a beautiful Christmas rainbow tree, you must totally commit to it. Add glittering lights, sequins, perhaps some old-fashioned beaded necklaces, and a DIY paper star to top it all off. After all, it’s Christmas!
Christmas trees are usually the focal point in every home during the holiday season, especially if you’re hosting and want to wow your guest with a beautifully decorated tree. In our opinion, it should be the best part of any Christmas home tour!
Placing ornaments, like beaded strings or garlands, is a lovely and unique Christmas decoration, and there’s no right or wrong way to drape them. Of course, you can always just throw them on and call it a day or carefully plan the draping, so it’s neater. A string of beads can be the only decoration if done right. But if you want extra elements, combine them with other Christmas decorations like tinsel, pine cones, or ornaments to make the tree look fuller.
You’ll love this Christmas tree decoration idea if you like the rustic farmhouse look. Christmas is a fun time to decorate with cotton, as it’s incredibly versatile and resembles snow, giving your home a wintery Christmas vibe. They also have a very subtle and pretty look, making them an excellent option for minimalists. Instead of using baubles this Christmas, tuck some cotton flowers into your Christmas tree with a few seasonal picks like tree sprigs and florals to give your tree various textures.
You can buy cotton stems at most florists or nurseries, just ask for cotton flowers, and they'll point you in the right direction.
Give your tree a luxurious look this Christmas! If you wish to include the characteristics of snow in your home, choose white and fluffy garlands for your tree. A clever way to do this is to use a feather boa. Wrap the boa around your tree as you would your lights in a downward spiral motion for a more cohesive look. To finish the effect, use light-coloured ornaments but keep them minimal. You can use white, pastels, and silvers. Add more feathers and fluff where needed.
If you’re going for a clean, minimalist aesthetic, opt for an all-white tree or a green tree with snow-covered bristles.
