Running out of Christmas tree decoration ideas? Happens to the best of us and that is why, to help you out here, are some tips you can use, some ideas to help you imagine. Help in every form, whatever you need, whatever you want, there is help.
Let’s not use the term “help” anymore and get on with the suggestions, so read on:
1. As white as snow:
A crisp, artificial white feather Christmas tree with contrasting metallic ornaments adorning it is what a gorgeous Christmas tree looks like. The ornaments can be silver, rich purple or blue in metallic tones which will bring out the snowy whiteness of the tree beautifully.
These trees look wonderful on hallway tables, end tables, in the corner of your room or even in the centre of the room (for fun). White feathered Christmas trees look amazing anywhere.

2. Gleaming jewel tones:
Sometimes we all need a little bit of sparkle. Not in the “Edward Cullen sparkling in sunshine” kind of way, but just the plain old glitter, especially during Christmas. For this to happen, you can decorate the precious tree with decorations based on jewel tones. Unexpected pieces of jewellery (fake please, real ones can cause mysterious disappearances) can be used in a fun way to come up with an eclectic Christmas tree decoration theme. Apart from jewellery like ornaments, things like lanterns can also be hung above or on one of the sturdier branches of the tree to give it a soft, warm and rich glow.
3. Santa is coming:
Brace yourselves little tykes, Santa Claus is coming. To impress Santa, apart from your good behaviour, you can also decorate your tree in his favourite colours. That is of course, no prizes for guessing: red and white. Use these holiday colours to bring out the festive spirit in the best way possible. The tree can be decorated with Santa hats, stockings, snowflakes and what not. Even the ornaments can be of the red and white colour palette and Mr. Claus will be nicer to you than to other kids, pinky promise.
4. Understated, simple and contemporary tree:
Most of us go over the top with our decorations because that implies festivity. We forget, unfortunately, that sometimes understated is the best way to go. The natural prettiness of the tree often gets overshadowed with the trinkets and ornaments decorating it. Hence, decorating your Christmas tree with bright, fuss free and clean elements like wooden birds, paper balls and garlands and anything crafty is quite a refreshing idea. The best thing about this decoration is that it is DIY, making tree decoration a lot of fun for the entire family.
5. Candy Christmas:
Make your kids happy little babies by decorating the tree filled with treats. It’s simple, use ice-cream cones (readymade or homemade) and fill them with candies. All sorts of chocolates, toffees, and cake popsicles and so on can be filled into a nice and empty ice-cream cone. Be careful and be gentle with the cone though, it will break easily and so will this ingenious idea.

6. Shining bright lights:
The safest way to decorate your tree is to light it up with…lights. Use them subtly or use them dramatically – just keep using them.
These are a few tips you could use to decorate your Christmas tree.
