Mexican Christmas Tree Ornaments
Decorate a Hispanic Christmas Tree
Celebrate your Mexican heritage with Christmas tree ornaments that showcase your Mexican pride.
I lived along the Texas-Mexican border for 11 years. Christmas was a festive time of tamales, Christmas songs played by a mariachi band and handmade paper flowers.
There are many icons that remind us of our roots. Deck your Christmas tree with Mexican flags, poinsettias, sombreros, miniature pinatas, mariachi figures and cornhusk angels. Everyone will delight in the feelings it evokes at Christmas.

Mexico Is a Large Country with Many Christmas Traditions
Mexican Flag Ornament - Quite inexpensive, so buy a batch of them
Get a big batch of these to place all around the tree. No need for ornament hooks, just poke to flag pole part into the trees branches and drape the flag how you want it.
Scatter Some Miniature Sombreros on the Tree - Just Like the Mariachi Wear (But Smaller, Of Course)
Lots of rave reviews on Amazon for what a great buy these are and how good they look.
MEXICAN MARIACHI Glass Ornament

Mexican Sombrero Ornaments for a Hispanic Christmas Tree
These straw ones are quite inexpensive, so you can buy a lot to place around the tree. It's nice that they stack for storing compactly after the holiday.

Delightful Guitar Ornament
Bring the spirit of fiesta to your tree with this Spanish guitar.
When I lived in South Texas, along the border to Mexico, I attended a number of classical guitar performances. These are very much a part of Mexican culture and you'll see them in the mariachi bands too.
4.5" Mexican Mariachi Santa Claus with Trumpet Christmas Figure Ornament
This one is so popular that sometimes it goes out-of-stock on Amazon.
Santa with a trumpet will add some Mexican flair to your tree. He's nicely rounded (probably loves the tamales as much as I do). You get 3 ornaments.
Tree Ornament - White Skull Decorated for Day of the Dead
This is a work of art and will add a quirky look to your Mexican themed holiday tree.
Day of the Dead Ornament
You could display this at other times of the year by getting a small stand for showing off a single ornament.

Add some spice to your Christmas tree with these mouth blown, hand-painted ornaments. Look at the shading on these. Really well-done.
Red Crepe Paper Flowers
This is a popular craft along the border and throughout Mexico. The literacy classes at my library liked to decorate for the holidays. One of the crafts they made was the crepe paper flowers. These really look festive on a tree or placed around a table or the room.
Ready-Made Crepe Paper Flowers
You could make your own, but these are ready to go. They'll add a lot of color to your tree.

Poinsettias - the Mexican Flower for a Christmas Tree
Our library in Weslaco used to decorate the Christmas tree with lots of large flocked poinsettias each year. It looked quite dramatic. Actually it was great for a library as glass ornaments can get bumped, fall off and break on hard library floors. If you have a tile floor, then go safe with the unbreakable poinsettias.
