Festive and completely unique, this magical

A simple tree can look super elevated, plus the presents underneath will really pop. Here a
wooden bead garland and DIY clay ornaments
(both with tutorials on The Merrythought) add rustic elegance to the Christmas decor.
Christmas, but make it rainbow. The white tree as a base really lets the ornaments shine. Plus, in an amazing twist, the colorful balls are actually plastic and filled with toys (sort of like an Easter egg).
If you’re dreaming of a white Christmas, opt for a bright white tree that looks like it’s covered with powdery snow. Everything here looks chic and clean and I love how even the house plants gets to have its moment with twinkly lights.
Almost Makes Perfect
A funky Charlie Brown tree can be totally chic and unique if you nail the decor. Here a skinny Christmas tree looks large and elegant thanks to sparkly, vintage-inspired ornaments, a sunburst tree topper, and draped strands of beads.
Add a little Christmas cheer to the kitchen with a potted tree (bonus points if you plant it when you’re done). Setting it on a table or stool adds height and bows are an easy way to add some flair without hanging a ton of ornaments.
Move over red and green, it’s time for pink to shine. The bubble gum pink tree is joyful and festive, and the tutorial on Studio DIY shows how to make these fun
that add some extra sweetness to an already fun look.
Minimal can be anything but boring as this stunning Scandinavian-inspired Christmas tree shows. It’s hard to believe that this is a faux tree which comes pre-lit, and the garland and uncluttered ornaments look elegant and understated.
Homey Oh My
Who says flowers are just for spring? This amazing tree from the
Design Love Fest
blog is dreamy and super unique. Plus it uses silk flowers so it’ll last all season.
If your kid is wild about Christmas, get them a mini tree of their own. Variations on the same ornament (in the case a nutcracker) make the tree look cohesive and pretty, and a rainbow garland with pops of sparkly branches adds so much festive cheer.
If you’re lucky enough to have a big coniferous tree in the yard (or you’re willing to bring a faux one outside, as is the case here) decorate it with handmade garlands and sparkly tinsel for a total wow-factor your neighbors will love.
Traditional meets funky in this stunning tree from
Sugar & Cloth
. The ornaments are actually a DIY project and they’re spray-painted to have a vintage feel. Plus, the DIY tassel tree topper is a boho dream.

Even the teeniest of trees can add a huge amount of warmth and brightness to your space. Here, oversized garlands and a decorated holiday wreath are offset by a tiny lit tree that looks extra elegant thanks to the shiny pot it’s placed in.
