It’s that time of the year again! let’s face it Christmas is when we like to show off, from cooking and hosting to gift wrapping and cocktail making, we all like to “humbly” put on the best party.
Your Christmas tree is the perfect way to showcase your sense of style to all your friends and family. Whether you have to drag your tree out of storage and dust off your baubles or visit your local farm to choose the perfect specimen…it is time to get creative. We have rounded up 5 amazing examples of what is possible with a tiny bit of imagination, some sparkly trinkets and perhaps a few cans of spray paint.
GO PASTEL for a whimsical and soft feel. We love the touches of ice blue and fairy floss pink scattered amongst the silvery snow. This frost tipped beauty by Jillian Harris looks as though it came straight out of a fairytale.
GO OMBRE for a quirky feature. A few cans of black and grey spray paint and metallic baubles have transformed this unassuming tree into a monochromatic masterpiece. Check out this link for step by step instructions.
GO NATURAL for warmth and Nostalgia. We love the touch of personalised lettering, this is the ultimate centrepiece for a family home. Designed by This Charming Life, this tree is full of surprises from pinecones to cinnamon sticks, all adding to its rustic, holiday cabin charm.
GO RAINBOW for an exciting party piece. This design is crazy and over the top, however against a sleek an minimalist backdrop, it makes a bold and beautiful statement. According to the designer Michael Wurm Jr, the tree should always tell a story – after all, it is a season of joy and celebration.
GO TRADITIONAL for understated elegance. This tree embodies sophistication and holiday glamour. Simplicity is key – don’t overdo it – except for the sparkly glitter, you can never have too much sparkle! Check out this link for some great tips for all budding Christmas tree designers.
Christmas is the perfect time to express your creative flair, so get crafty and think outside of the beautifully gift wrapped box!
