While some people just throw lights, ornaments, and tinsel on their Christmas tree, others take a more organized approach. Some go so far as to create a theme tree (or two) within the home. Those who want to do this but need some inspiration, look no further because we have the most creative theme suggestions!
Themed Christmas Tree Ideas
Step 1: Pay tribute to the jolly old guy by creating a Santa’s workshop tree. Add green, red, and white balls, wooden toy ornaments, and those featuring reindeer, elves, and snowmen. Make a sign pointing the way to Santa’s workshop, hang different colored candy canes, and top the tree with a stuffed elf.
Step 2: Add extra sparkle to the tree with a gold or silver theme. White lights and gold or silver ornaments in all shapes and sizes make the tree glow. Find gold or silver holiday word ornaments or make your own using cardstock, glitter, and glue. Top the tree with a magnificent bow and let the tails cascade down the branches.
Step 3: Show off the beautiful faces in the family by photocopying pictures of family members, gluing them to gold or silver cardstock to form a frame, and adding a shiny bead or rope border. Glue a group photo to a cardstock star and use it to top the tree. Add vintage ornaments, pinecones, and craft birds to complete the look.
Step 4: Have the children make different ornaments and crafts and use these to decorate the tree. Bead angels, snowflakes, and candy canes glisten when illuminated by white lights. Pipe cleaner and construction paper ornaments add whimsy and a beaded multicolor garland is festive and fun.
Step 5: Make the tree good enough to eat by decorating it with candy and other food. String popcorn and cranberry garland around the branches and hang candy canes, wrapped hard candy, and chocolate kisses from hot-glued ribbon hangers. You can even wrap bags of Christmas cookies in colorful cellophane and a bow and hang them from the branches. This tree makes post-holiday cleanup easy because you can eat the decorations!
