Create The Best Theme Decorated Christmas Tree Ever

Updated on October 11, 2013

Christmas Tree Themes You Can Create at Home

I love to decorate for Christmas and the winter holidays! Through the years we've had several themed Christmas trees, and whenever I see one when I'm out and about of course I have to get a photo for inspiration. I have quite the collection of Christmas tree themes, so I thought I'd share them here. Here are some Christmas tree decorating themes you can duplicate on your own trees. A closeup of each theme is featured with instructions on creating a similar theme on your tree at home.

Sample ornaments are also shown, most are the same, or similar to the ornaments shown in the photo. Make a list of what you need before you head out to shop for your favorite theme. I hope this will inspire you to create your own themed Christmas tree this year. If your Christmas tree has a theme, please feel free to share your ideas in the guest book at the bottom of this page.

      This is really great with lots of great ideas. I was looking for butterflies to give as a gift but now I think I'll give the gift of a tree with butterflies. Angel blessed.
