Unique Christmas Tree Decor Ideas

Hello Friends!

I know your all busy preparing for Thanksgiving, be it hosting or visiting someone, it is a busy fun holiday for everyone. I do hope you have an enjoyable and memorable Thanksgiving, wherever you are.

Anyway, after Thanksgiving then it's gonna be the CHRISTMAS FEVER starting, and if you haven't started your tree yet or in a shlump right now, I have some unique ideas here that you might wanna try this year!

1) Flowers 

Not the Ponsettias or Amaryllis, I'm talking about Spring and Summer flowers.

2) Toys

Christmas is definitely for kids too and hanging toys I think would just be fantastic. And I'm not talking about just nutcrackers, but real toys. The Dollar store will be an excellent resource for this. Think Teddy bears, dolls, balls - or a particular cartoon theme. They can double as treats for kids too and unexpected visitors who can pick their toy from the tree!

3) Bows

Post  holiday season when everything is 50% off  or more, you can go as crazy as you want with the different colors available. A big plus too, is that it's very light and good for homes with little ones running around still. ;-)

Kate Spade already had the idea, imagine this all over your tree!

Or these cute paper bows by Lia Griffith
4) Picture Frames

What better way to showcase family and how your year has been than with a tree decked out in just picture frames with your pictures of course?!

Cool 2 Craft
You can just use one type of frame color or different colors like the one above.

5) Whatever you Collect

Since we have some sort of collection in our homes, wouldn't it be great to showcase them as well during Christmas? Think Travel Post Cards, matchboxes (no matches inside please), Wine corks. Things that can be hung or put on a strong tree on a pedestal, just look at the examples below...

I have a friend who collects Swarovski and Waterford ornaments and her tree is just filled with these and it is magical! I can also think of displaying antlers, Santa Claus items and decor, etc.

Whatever it is you fancy to decorate your tree with this year, be it the old ornaments you have or be it the shiny new ones you just bought, that most important aspect of course, is the home in which this tree will sit in.

I have never met a Christmas Tree I do not love, it shows each family's unique individuality and I just think you can never, ever go wrong with following your heart when it comes to decorating these babies!

Have fun and Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

VEL Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...


  1. People can really get creative with their trees. I'm trying to decide if I'm even going to bother with one. No one but me would enjoy it.

  2. So many unique ideas...the picture frame and the village are my favorites!
