During the holidays, I decorate many Christmas trees for myself and clients. Honestly, I do get bored decorating with the same or same kind of decorations year after year. Therefore, I love to challenge myself to come up with new ways to decorate a tree, at least new to me. For a few weeks, I had an idea to strand hundreds of shatterproof ball ornaments together to create an ‘ornament garland.’ Last week, I was able to decorate a pink Christmas tree using this notion and it turned out amazing.
This tree looked a little like the one from ‘Charlie Brown.’ However, with a few hundred ornaments, it became a show stopper!
Sharing our gifts and talents is one way to spread kindness, but also the holiday spirit. When my friend Dawn, who owns a salon, mentioned not feeling the holiday spirit yet, I knew that I was the one to bring it to her. So, I asked her to pick a color palette and I would do the rest. While I love my blue decorations, I was so excited that she chose silver, pewter grey and blush pink Christmas tree ornaments. It’s feminine and a little edgy!
Again, I like to think outside the box to create something unique. It makes decorating more fun. So, here are a few ideas that you can do, no matter what color you decorate with.
TIP: When hanging the garland, an extra set of hands is helpful.
FYI: Some balls may pop off from their plastic topper. Simply replace or hot glue back on, if necessary.
Here are a few pink Christmas ornaments from Decorator’s Warehouse in Arlington, Texas. If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, I encourage you to shop in the store as the selection is much wider than online. Plus, there are over 13 fully decorated Christmas trees in many different colors and styles to get inspiration from.
