Contemporary Christmas Trees
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
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.
