Strange Christmas Tree Decorations

Updated on August 29, 2017

I Love To Decorate My Christmas Tree With Strange Christmas Ornaments

I love all Christmas decorations, well maybe not the old aluminum Christmas trees with the color wheels. But I have a growing collection of really strange Christmas decorations.

Now I don't like any thing mean or crude. I like decorations that are unique and just plain old silly fun.

Don't get me wrong, I love beautiful traditional Christmas ornaments too.

Here is a sample of my collection. - I think of them as fun, but most say they are weird. You can judge for yourself.

Now if you are a cat lover you will realize how sweet this kitty is. If you are not a cat lover, you probably will think this one is strange.

My first strange decoration was our Santa Banana who was given to me by a coworker over 30 years ago. This Santa is a rubbery plastic decoration.

Our dear old Santa is in the Hi Ho Silver position, riding the banana like a horse and holding onto the peel. He is the prize decoration on our tree. I bet my kids will fight over it when I am gone!

(There has already been some discussion between the kids in that direction, but I don't plan on going anywhere for many many years.)

Christmas is such a fun time to decorate.

      This lens is so much fun! My siblings and I love crazy ornaments and for years when we came to visit my parents we hung our childhood favorites on their chandelier since they wouldn't allow them on the tree. I now have custody of a number of them. My personal all-time wacky faves: a spider made out of jingle bells, a morbidly obese puffball mouse in a Santa hat and a squirrel in a baseball mitt with some holly.

      What a fabulous lens! I especially love the can-can chicken-n-Santa, and the kitten. Also love the idea of using a Christmas tree decoration as a gift wrapping decoration. I think I'm definitely going to do that this year! Great selection here! Blessed. :)

      Just a hint about shooting close up in flash: You do not want to be physically too close. Use your zoom lens and then use a digital processor like Photoshop to enlarge the photo.

      Nice lens by the way!

      These Christmas ornaments are fun! You can add some of these to the traditional ones and create a whole new tree! Merry Christmas!

      I am obsessed with ugly Christmas sweaters and I love that you found an ornament of an ugly reindeer sweater. I will have to looking into purchasing one. Love this lens!!

      I enjoyed seeing your unique Christmas ornaments. One of the favorites on my tree is from a craft fair. It's a guilty looking kitty holding a broken Christmas ball. He looks just like my gray cat who used to climb in the tree knocking things off.

      Fun to see your 'strange' Christmas Tree ornaments! My collection centers on my love of the Sea after years of living near the ocean on both East & West coasts, so I have lots of 'beachy' ornaments. :) Your 'Santa on a Surfboard' would fit right in with my others! :)

      Yep, why not - a great Xmas vacation with a collection of strange and queer décor will be good for everyone's soul and a humourous one too.

      Here's a tip, don't hang a "Flamin' Cat" on your tree, it will end up looking like the one in "Christmas Vacation!" Blessed~~~!

      Well, I guess all that's left is to wish you an outrageously strange Christmas, what fun! I'm guessing your friends and family are on quests to please your "strange" taste in Christmas ornaments.

      I go for simple christmas tree decorations, to me the whole tree is just too much.

      This year. I have a nativity set, an angel, a candle, some gargoyles, (Gargoyles are good) and green tinsel.

      These ornaments are strange, but fun! I think the silliest is a tie between the Santa banana and Santa dancing with the red chicken. For decorating the tree we try to go with a theme. One year might be all traditional, another would be fun type decorations.

      I have fun with all kinds of ornaments on our tree. From handmade through the years, to old memories of earlier years, to whatever the grandchildren want to put on the tree. We enjoy our Christmas tree! It does not win any beauty contests but it's fun!
