    • Festive and Sedate

      Looking for a new way to decorate a Christmas tree? Here, festive shapes and a sedate, nontraditional color palette of soft green, gold, copper, and brown offer a fresh look.

    • Heart Felt

      All sorts of ornament shapes take on a new look when sewn from felt. On this version, contrasting felt stripes and festive beaded trim give an updated, sparkling style.

    • Sequins and Felt

      Brown felt turns glam with a gold mesh overlay. A stripe of ribbon was embellished with Swarovski crystals (though less expensive sequins or a glitter pen design could also be pretty).

    • Paper Shape

      This ornament has the look of hand-painted glass, yet the materials are simple and the technique easy. Flat cardboard shapes are faced with pieces of decorative paper (wrapping paper would be beautiful). A gold loop on top and a delicate string of beads at the bottom give the decoration more appeal.

    • Rickrack

      Turn inexpensive gold sewing trim into something spectacular with this idea. Pinking shears offer definition to the felt bands behind a simple row of metallic gold rickrack.

    • Vertically Inclined

      This simple shape takes on new definition with an outline of Swarovski crystals and a line of golden rickrack.

    • Tree Topper

      A traditional glass tree topper was given a new look with striped bands.

    • Tree Skirt

      This circular tree skirt was custom-sewn in brown felt with a gold mesh overlay and bouillon fringe.

    • The Finished Tree

      This beautiful Christmas tree has an upscale look on a very modest budget.
