Nothing says Christmas like a beautifully decorated tree… There are lots of looks that are easy to achieve… simple, subtle, themed, color-coordinated….but a big bold designer look can be tough to put together…. here are some helpful hints for creating an over-the-top elegant tree. Lights are the foundation of any tree decor……don’t use them sparingly….wrap from the inside out so the whole tree glows.

An impressive garland like this is easy to create from…ribbon! This is actually three parallel ribbons that drape into a corkscrew pattern down the tree. Ribbon’s readily available and it’s easy to customize using different colors and widths, so you can create a garland that suits your tree and your taste.

Consider clustering your ornaments instead of hanging them individually around the tree. Mix sizes and shapes for more impact. Blend clusters and single ornaments until the tree is filled. Picks like this are a great way to add dimension and that extra touch of elegance to your tree….this pick paired with a beautiful bird create a repeating motif throughout the tree.

For a stunning skirt… use an extra wide ribbon and loop and wire into something unexpected. And here’s another use for those picks, Tuck them into the skirt for an airy, light, elegant effect. To top it all off, a tree topper. Again, don’t go with something expected like a star or angel…this is actually 3 tabletop trees, turned upside down and filled with an ornament assortment.

Glittery poinsettia picks create fullness –a creative crowning moment for a designer-inspired tree. Make sure to account for room height especially if you have a large topper. For more tree-topper ideas, slip silvery berry picks between the branches, or pair these burlap poinsettia picks with berry and twig picks. Gather your favorite elements and get your designer on this Christmas using these easy tips.
