    • Trio of Trees

      Win the award for the most creative with these three small Christmas trees. Use colorful wooden gift boxes for a jack-in-the-box element of surprise. Decorate the trees with a mixture of oversize decorative balls and smaller silver ornaments to keep the room sparkling.

    • All That Glitters

      A frosted artificial tree becomes stunning when hung with frosted drop ornaments and wrapped in a simple, wide ribbon.

    • A White Christmas

      A snow-white tree is the perfect backdrop for bright, colorful ornaments. Choose a playful theme, such as "Eye-Popping Presents" shown here, and choose simple shapes to let the colors shine.

    • Rainbow Brights

      Give your tree a rainbow effect by organizing bulbs in monochromatic sections along the tree. Here, shades of yellow, pink, and blue create the desired effect. Connect the colors by adding a tree topper and skirt that uses all the colors on the tree. Learn how to make the colorful ribbon tree skirt on the next slide.

    • Ribbon Tree Skirt

      Dress up the base of your tree with a colorful ribbon skirt. Cut varying lengths of thick, wire-edge ribbon in different colors, then attach them to the tree trunk with florist's wire.

    • All Glamour

      A lipstick-red tree is delicately balanced with a clear bead garland and drop ornaments. You could inexpensively duplicate this look by spray-painting a large branch red and hanging jewelry-inspired ornaments from it.

    • Glistening Tree

      Hang handmade ball ornaments covered in metallic or iridescent sequins or glitter designs, all in icy pastel colors, to make your tree shimmer.

    • Sweet Treat

      A small white tree decorated with glass-candy ornaments is a sweet way to celebrate the holidays. Peppermint candies in a clear class vase enhance the theme.
