Believe it or not… I’ve never had much game when it comes to decorating a Christmas tree. Our tree growing up was lights and a large collection of family ornaments. And that’s how our tree has pretty much been ever since! This year, I’m trying to up my tree game. I wanted to start small and thought it might be fun to decorate the same tree in a few different ways. My friends at Luna Bazaar send me the decorations for this tree… check out their site for more party and holiday decor!
One Tree. Three Ways.
I’m using this simple 24″ tree from Amazon for all of these designs (affiliate link). In hindsight, maybe I should have brought in some garland or other accessories, but my goal was to really highlight the simplicity of a plain tree with the a varied ornament scheme.
Tree #1 is a nod to Scandinavian simplicity. These simple white paper ornaments stand on their own. An overachiever could probably figure out how to DIY them, but I enjoyed just taking them out of the boxes!
These will definitely find their way onto another tree this season.
This tree would be a REALLY fun thing for the kids to get involved with. Here’s what you need: simple round tags and some fun colored packing twine. Bonus points awarded for any design, word or scribble you add to each tag!
Another way to add a little bling to this design would be to string a bead or two onto each piece of twine first.
Third time’s a charm… this beauty is the one I stuck with. I mean… it has a rainbow of mini mercury glass… how could I take this one apart??
Again… there’s no technique here. I simply hung these amazing mercury glass ornaments working my way down the color scale. Rainbow garland would have been a nice touch, but like I said… didn’t occur to me!
As of today, I’ve decorated three trees and guys… it’s just not my calling. I’ll be back on Wednesday for a fun blog hop with other bloggers sharing THEIR trees and I’m already feeling a little insecure about my two that are basically drowning in garlands. Is there a class on tree decorating I can take?!
Don’t forget to PIN IT FOR LATER and come back throughout the week for more Christmas awesomeness. Also… head over to my HOLIDAY tab to keep up with all my holiday posts.
