100+ Christmas Tree Decorations Ideas and Tutorial

No matter what your holiday decorating style is, there are plenty of cherished ways to make your Christmas tree come to life this holiday season—and create a look your family will love.

From DIY tree lights to homemade ornament crafts and tree toppers galore, these are the absolute best Christmas tree decorations that your holiday home deserves.

Truthfully, you don’t need to go overboard to impress your guests this year. Many of the beautiful Christmas tree decorating ideas we’re presenting here are inexpensive, easy to pull off, and even easy enough for your kids to help out with—and they work on both indoor and outdoor trees.

(Honestly, your biggest priority should be making sure you keep your Christmas tree alive!) And while red and green hues can certainly help set the stage for a merry Christmas celebration, you can still have a gorgeous display without being completely color-coordinated.

Consider trying to deck your tree with rose gold colors this year, or even walk on a bolder side by opting for blue Christmas decor. You can also deck your tree with ribbon or for a lower-lift look or try one of these glitter ornaments if you want to add some sparkle to your spruce.

Whatever Christmas tree look you choose (even if it’s alternative!), the purpose of all of our best ideas is to encourage you to think outside the box, have fun, and bring your family closer together during December.

After all, that’s what this holiday—and it’s the green centerpiece—is really about.
