How to Decorate Black Trees for the Holidays & Beyond

Decorating Black Trees

If you want a unique centerpiece for your home, then a black artificial tree is the way to go. It’s a lot like the little black dress because it’s so versatile. Black trees go with practically any decorating theme you have in mind. These decorating ideas will show you why and how you can take your black Christmas tree from one occasion to the next.

Light, Matte, & Shine

Christmas tree ornaments in white or pastel colors are a striking contrast to black tree branches. This effect is even more dramatic when you combine them with solid-colored ornament sets in matte and shiny finishes. Stick to a color scheme that consists of one to three colors, and don’t be afraid to use metallics. A great example of this is from Reichel Breussard of Copy Cat Chic. She used our black tree for this class act.

This tree decorating idea is also perfect for your New Year’s bash. Add in some pastel floral picks (Don’t skimp!) and go easy on the shine to welcome spring.

Patterns & Bows

Try something a little different. Go ahead and use bows and ornaments made of fabric in bright patterns. These will really stand out on a black tree. It’s also a chance to unleash your inner DIY superstar.

Treetopia brand ambassador Jen Perkins styled our Tuxedo Black Christmas Tree. It’s just bursting with plaid perfection.

If you’re into fashion, think of a black tree as your trend or mood board that reflects all the latest colors, fabrics, and patterns as they change all year round. Style trends may come and go, but your tree is here to stay!

Go, Team!

Here’s a decorating idea for all you fanboys and girls out there. Use our Pitch Black Pine as your shrine to your sports team during the season. Decorate it with memorabilia, DIY ornaments, and streamers. The blacker the tree, the more your team’s colors pop. Jen Perkins shows us how with these Super Bowl-themed trees. We’re rooting for you!

Not into sports? Make our tree your homage to your pop culture obsession just like our Star Wars-inspired theme. May the 4th be with you!

Colorful Calaveras

Halloween is just around the corner, and this decorating idea is a certified treat!

Skulls are everywhere from costumes to home décor to trees during this spooky holiday. Here’s a craft project from Cassie Stephens on how to create your own creepy skull ornaments!

Similar to Halloween is Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). No, they’re not one and the same. Dia de los Muertos actually lasts for 3 days. It’s when the spirits of ancestors are believed to come back for a visit. They are welcomed with festivals, performances, favorite food, and of course, skulls or calaveras as they are known in Mexico.

Now, these aren’t morbid like the skulls in horror books and movies. Instead, they are full of colorful detail to show how Mexicans celebrate their loved ones who have passed on. Our Stiletto Black Pencil Tree decorated by Lia Griffith is a creative wonder. We love how skilled she is at the fine art of paper cutting.
