Christmas Trees and Decorations to bring some Christmas cheer

It is no secret that there are truly some amazing Christmas trees out there and, with the even more fabulous creatives moving the earth among us, we wanted to highlight some stunning ideas that will really make your tree stand out from the rest.

A touch of rustic style

If you are into the more rustic designs, this design is most definitely for you. First, you will need to find a centre piece – opting for a sturdy pole and attaching a strong foot piece should do the trick. Next you will need planks. Cut them in different lengths to represent the different levels of the tree. Making holes at the ends – to enable you to ‘string’ them over the pole – start with the longer planks first, moving all the way to the top with your shorter planks. Find Christmas decorations that will match the design and voila – a unique tree everyone will love.

You can even add a touch of colour to this tree by painting the ornaments or even the planks themselves.

A tree for small floor spaces

Making use of branches – cleaning them and removing the bark – cut them to size so that you can be able to form a ‘pyramid’ design. The first option is to separately attach the branches to the wall, spacing them just right. The second option for creating this look is using line (fishing line will work well) and attach the branches to each other, once this is done, you can hang it against the wall.

After your tree is up, use fairy lights and Christmas tree decorations to make your tree sparkle. Why is this such an awesome idea? Well, it is a great space saver and thus a stunning option for those of us who live in smaller homes.

Add new life to old pipes

Your first step in creating this stunning tree is to find old pieces of PVC pipe (different sizes) and a large, sturdy canvas. On the canvas, outline a large triangle – this will be the shape of your tree. Next, cut the PVC pipe – make sure that they are more or less the same breath so that one circle doesn’t stick over the other. Attach the circles to the canvas using an adhesive.

Once everything is dried, put the canvas up and place different Christmas decorations in the larger circles to add a splash of Christmas cheer.

A truly simple Christmas tree idea

If you are limited on supplies or if you are not really into sparkly decorations, you can invest in some fairy lights for sale and create a simple design that is truly stylish. Use your fairy lights to create a Christmas tree pattern on the wall. Switch on the lights and you have a beautifully lit tree that is great if you have limited floor space.

Simple to make, your guests are sure to love them as much as we do.

If you are looking for something a little more colourful, why not opt for this idea instead. Simply use a white serviette, some scrap material and twine. Wrap a piece of material around the serviette, securing it in place with your twine. Before making a bow, string Christmas decorations (like a start or other ornaments) into place. You can even use candy canes.

Beautiful centre pieces

No table is complete without a centre piece. A beautiful (and easy) idea is to find small Christmas trees for sale. Simply wrap a piece of hessian around the bottom and secure it in place with a piece of twine.

Because it is Christmas, why not make gifts your centre piece. Wrapping different size boxes (keep them smallish though) and going all out in terms of paper and bows, will make for simple and inexpensive centre pieces that fit. This will also allow you to play around with different colours, so have some creative fun!

Make your own Advent Calendar

Using a muffin tin and some magnet sheets of various colours and patterns, cut out circles big enough to fit over the ‘muffin holes’. Cut out smaller circles on which you can write numbers and voila – you have an advent calendar. Hang it up where everyone can see it and make it fun for the kids by hiding small toys inside (instead of candy). If you have more than one child, make it an arts and crafts project and help each child make his or her own.
