Decorating a Black Christmas Tree

Posted by Treetopia in Artificial Christmas Trees | Decorating Tips

A black Christmas tree is a great choice if you’re looking for a holiday design with unique charm and personality. Viewed as a modern and stylish alternative, black Christmas trees are becoming quite popular as a holiday centerpiece as the dark hue makes a perfect backdrop for shimmering ornaments. Its versatility is an even more enticing option—it never goes out of style and can be easily redecorated as a year-round, interesting home décor. Here are some decorating ideas you can try:

Tuxedo Drama

Establish a minimalist yet classy look by adding clear lights and white ornaments. Twine silky ribbons as garlands and hang white Christmas balls of varying sizes for an elegant black-and-white look. If you want more style, look for white Christmas ornaments with simple black detail.

Starry Night

Recreate the beauty of a dark, starry sky on your tree for a dramatic look perfect for cozy holiday get-togethers. String clear lights on the tree and hang dark blue and silver Christmas balls and tinsel garlands. Complete the look with different star and moon-shaped ornaments as well as those with glitters or sequins.

Crystal Luxury

Black represents lavish style and a top choice for fine dining events and grand night balls. Exude rich taste in your holiday design by decorating your black tree with crystal or glass ornaments. If you have the budget, hang Swarovski crystals or glass ornaments. You can also make your own, like angels, stars, and snowflakes. If you want to add more fun, go for reindeer, snowman, and stocking designs. Add shimmer with clear lights and pearl or crystal bead garlands.

Royal Purple

Make Victorian style your inspiration and evoke a royal atmosphere with a purple theme. Hang white or glass Christmas balls trimmed with purple lace or satin and dot the tree with some purple flowers. Twine purple garlands and silver bead garlands around the tree. Silky or velvety purple tassels give a rich look. For a more Victorian feel, make purple and silver cornucopias with silky ribbons and fill with nuts or treats.

Halloween Christmas

Stringing orange lights around a black tree gives a captivating appeal that is perfect for Halloween lovers. Blend Halloween festivity with Christmas by adding pumpkin or bat ornaments together with orange Christmas balls and tinsel garlands.

Traditional Trendy

Gold and silver are timeless holiday colors that fit very well with black trees, too. Gold and silver ornaments and garlands make the tree stand out all the more. With a black tree, you can never hang too many glittery Christmas balls! Tie large bows of gold and silver ribbons for a breathtaking design.

If you long to feature a vintage-themed tree, hang fun tin ornaments like Santa and reindeer designs. You can also create an old-fashioned look by making paper ornaments like peace cranes and garlands. You won’t go wrong with daring colors like pink or bright blue if you want to veer away from tradition.

Make a statement this holiday season with a stunning black Christmas tree to complete your holiday design.
