Decorate your Christmas Tree with Angels

Updated on November 6, 2014

Angels are a Favorite Ornament for Christmas Trees

Angels have long been a favorite ornament for Christmas trees. They are very special reminders of the true meaning of Christmas.

Remember it was an angel who first told Mary that she would have a child and then angels announced the birth of Christ to shepherds in a field. " Don't be afraid," the angel said to them. "I have good news for you. A great joy will come to all the people: the Savior, who is Christ the Lord, was born for you today in David's town." Luke 2:10

When my children were young, I would make them a special ornament each Christmas. Many of these ornaments were angels. The one in this photo is of a praying boy angel that I made for my son when he was a toddler. As the children became older they also made some angels of their own to add to our tree.

There are many beautiful angel ornaments available, in a wide range of prices. I have chosen some that I think are especially nice. I hope you enjoy my selection.

May you Have a Blessed Christmas!

Ceramic Girl Angel

for a special girl

This ornament was made for my daughter when she was a toddler. Each year when I unpack our ornaments I love to look at the ornaments that I made or bought for our children when they were young. I took ceramics for many years and this ornament is one that I made for my daughter Linda.

Now I have four little granddaughters. So this year I'm looking for four special angel ornaments for three special little girls.

Dated Ornaments Make Special Gifts

I really like having a dated ornament for my tree each year. Many times I try to pick out an ornament to fit with something that happened during the year. It might have been a winning season for my favorite team, the birth of a new grandchild, a new home or a lighthouse from someplace we visited.

This past year my beloved mother-in-law went to heaven. She loved angels, so I think it will be very appropriate to have a dated angel ornament to remember her this year.

Beautiful Angels to Decorate your Tree - unique angel ornaments

There are so many beautiful and unique angel ornaments available. I use some on my tree and others I put around our nativity set.

Here are a few of my favorites.

Waterford 2012 Annual Lismore Angel Ornament

Each year Waterford comes out with a beautiful crystal Christmas ornament. This can be a very special gift for someone special.

I have one that my daughter brought back from Ireland several years ago. It is a special part of my angel collection.

This beautiful angel is made a pale blue jasper with white jasper highlights. It would make a beautiful addition to your Christmas tree.

Swarovski 2009 Annual Edition Sparkling Star Ornament

This beautiful angel would be a very special gift! It can be used as an ornament on your tree or a special figurine. I always like to use some of my angel ornaments to sit around my nativity scene. This special angel would be perfect!


Make your own Angel Ornament - a special homemade ornament

If you have the time and patience, making your own Christmas angel ornaments can be a great tradition. When my children were younger we would always make a few new ornaments for the tree each year. This booklet has instructions for 6 or 8 inch ornaments.

Seashell Angel Ornaments - two unique angels

I love these delicate looking little seashell angels. They are in pastel colors and add a touch of the sea to your holiday decorations.

Decorating your Christmas Tree - what is your preference

The Christmas Tree has always been one of my favorite symbols of the season. I like all types of trees and have several in my house. One of my trees has only two types of ornaments-red balls and pewter ornaments and another is full of a huge variety of ornaments collected over the years.

In this poll I'd like to see what type of trees are your favorites.

What type of Christmas tree to you like best?

      Every year I give a neighbor an angel ornament. She would like all of your selection. It's hard for me to decide on having an angel or a star on a tree, so we solved it by having several trees. Both symbols are so important in representing the birth of Christ.

      People do love angels, don't they? The angel is so much a part of the Christmas story that it's most fitting to have these beings that have caught the imagination of so many people for such a long time on our Christmas trees. (I like the Wedgwood Christmas angel best.)

      Angels are so important to add to a Christmas tree. We all need them watching over us during this hectic time. Now I have to decide on which new angels will be part of my tree this year.

      Angels are gorgeous on a Christmas tree. My favorite ornaments were the ones my daughter's Godmother gave her for each of her first ten birthdays (because she was born one week before Christmas), some of which were angels. They were a special part of our tree for many years -- until she grew up. Now they are on 'her' tree. :)

      What a nice selection of Christmas Angels. Growing up the top of our Christmas tree had a beautiful angel with soft hair. She had a light in her back and would glow. The angel on the top of our Christmas tree was my favorite.

      I love angels and have several different ones on my Christmas tree - each year I buy at least one angel... and must buy a bigger tree because of this as I don't have enough free branches to hang them all ;)

      We have a star rather than an angel for the top of our tree. I think it is my favorite because I can still picture my husband lifting up our young children top put the star on top on Christmas eve. (He cannot do that anymore, my sons are both 6' tall.)

      Nicely done shopping lens; good luck with it.

      Oh these are lovely! When I was a child we had an angel on the top of the tree, but our family has a star of flashing lights now. Maybe we should add some of these angels somewhere close by!
