When the holiday season arrives, you have only one idea in mind: decorate your tree. It is thanks to this illuminated tree that your household goes into festive mode. Here are 50 original ideas to decorate your tree in an original way this year.
1. Create an inhabited Christmas tree
If you want to make people smile for sure with your Christmas tree, put visitors there. A good option to recycle your Christmas elves bought to please your children a few years ago.
2. Opt for a minimalist Christmas tree
Instead of putting all the decorations accumulated over the years, this year, choose just one. Of course, it’s not an easy choice, but give it a go. Also, control your desire to overload your tree as much as possible and let it breathe a little. The effect might surprise you.
3. Plant branches in the Christmas tree for a realistic effect
In the forest, the branches of the trees are particularly intertwined at the top. This year, do the same to add a new decorative touch to your tree. This technique will also allow you to elegantly “plug” certain holes if your tree is a little stunted in certain places.
4. Choose an original color
Ditch the traditional red, the classic green, the usual silver, or the all too familiar gold. Who said Christmas was only celebrated with these shades? This year, decorate in purple, pink, brown, black and white, etc.
5. Playing with ribbons
The large ribbons sold can be used in several ways. Choose an extra-large ribbon to succeed in forming such waves that settle on the branches of your tree. You can also wrap your tree as a gift (or like this ), twist the ribbon over the entire surface of the tree, or even garnish it with dozens of loops. Also, try checkered ribbons for a surprising effect.
6. Reproduce a rainbow
Put your decorations in order and follow a pre-established order of colors. Thus, you will transform your tree into a real rainbow. It is certain that all your guests will comment on your originality.
If you need to see other ideas, we offer you a white tree spotted with colored balls, this large tree that takes on the appearance of a huge candy, a tree with oblique colored lines, or finally this three-colored tree.
7. Adopt the main theme
The only limit here is the extent of your imagination. As in the photo, you can choose to decorate only with objects that remind you of the house of Santa Claus. But nothing should stop you. Choose a theme that binds everyone in your family. Ideas? The world of sweets, Star Wars, crazy owls or Disney, superheroes, small racing cars, Harry Potter, etc.
8. Transform your tree into a giant character
The ways to turn your entire tree into a gigantic snowman can be very different (here is another model and another ). All it takes is a little preparation to decorate, not forgetting any detail (down to the shoes, sometimes!). Other characters to invite into your living room? Santa Claus, of course, or Mickey Mouse.
9. Hang your tree
Just because you don’t have space at home to install a real Christmas tree doesn’t mean you have to do without this holiday bliss. Decorate directly on a wall. It’s a perfect solution if you don’t want to overload a room. You might like this 3D tree, this one made of branches and pieces of wood, this round table, this flat tree, or this one installed on a corner (2 surfaces).
