How to decorate a thin christmas tree


How to Decorate Thin Christmas Trees

A slim artificial Christmas tree is the best choice for small and narrow spaces or as a second tree in your home. With its slender profile, you can achieve a beautiful holiday look while taking up less floor area.

In this video, Courtney of French Country Cottage shows three elegant looks for slim Christmas trees to help get you started:

Courtney Allison: Hi, I’m Courtney from Balsam Hill. Today we’re going to talk about how to decorate slim Christmas trees. Slim Christmas trees are also called pencil Christmas trees and narrow Christmas trees because of their narrow shape.

Unlike a traditional Christmas tree which is a little chubbier on the bottom and gets narrow as it goes up, a slim Christmas tree is going to have a similar build from top to bottom. The size and shape makes these trees perfect for smaller homes and for smaller places like bedrooms and the end of the hallway to add a little Christmas magic all through the house.

Since you don’t have as much space to decorate here, this gives you an opportunity to bring out those beautiful heirloom ornaments or the ones you’ve been collecting all the years, maybe grandmother’s treasured childhood ornaments that she gave to you. When you put them on a tree like this it’s going to give them a really prominent position.

Something else that I’m asked all the time is, if you have a smaller tree like this can you still have all of that magic and beauty that a regular-sized Christmas tree brings? The answer is yes. This is the cathedral fur from Balsam Hill and it’s covered in these beautiful fairy lights. As you can see it’s absolutely glowing. You’re going to have all of that same beautiful look for your Christmas tree just in a smaller size.

Today we’re going to talk about three unique looks for this Christmas tree to show you just how versatile it is. Our first look is layers of beautiful blue. From frosty blue to icy blues to navy blues, we’re going to layer those blues on the tree and then bring in a bit of copper for a little bit of a glam element that’s going to add a beautiful elegant look.

Our second look is a traditional red and white with a Scandinavian theme. We’ve got some beautiful fairies and some Scandinavian-themed ornaments that have a childhood feel that are really going to make it feel like a traditional classic Christmas look. We’ve also got a little bit of a vintage inspired glass garland that I think adds a very special touch.

The third look is this one right here that’s a more neutral, but using blush as a neutral base. We’ve got beautiful tones of pink, a little bit of gold and also whites on this tree that really make it feel very elegant and traditional, but also very neutral. So it’s going to fit into any room of your home.

Then we’re going to do three simple DIY ornaments that you can do right at home with your own family to create a special ornament for your own tree this holiday season. Let’s get started.

For our blue tree we used 24 icy metallic plume picks, 48 blue ornaments in several shades, 8 copper color ornaments, 6 copper, gold and bronze egg ornaments, 24 icicle ornaments, 24 white ornaments, blue and gold glitter ribbon and a snowflake tree topper.

For our non-traditional look using layers of blue, I’m starting with this beautiful crystal covered picks. I love that these picks add another layer of shimmer and elegance to the tree and that they reflect the twinkle lights beautifully.

Up next we’re going to bring in shades of blue, white and copper ornaments to create a look that is elegant and welcoming and beautifully unique. A tip when using ribbon on a slim tree. Some of your ribbon is going to feel a little bit too large to use at the top of your slim tree which is a little bit more narrow than the regular-sized tree.

A tip is to actually take your ribbon and just cut it in half or fold it in half and create a smaller version of your ribbon and tuck these smaller ribbons up top in the smaller areas. Use your regular size ribbon down below. This will tie your whole tree together and make it feel very designed and elegant without overwhelming the top of your tree.

Slim trees also have more space underneath than a traditional tree and it’s a perfect place to add another layer of magic with pretty packages for a designer look.

To make our felt ball wreath you need 9 to 12 felt balls, a hot glue gun with glue, jute string, a needle and thread, ribbon and scissors. I’m going make a cute little wreath using these felt balls. What you need to do is start with your needle and thread and then simply start stringing your felt balls along to create a wreath.

You can make this as large or as small as you’d like. We’re going to do a small one for this demonstration, but you can always keep going, adding more of the felt balls to make the size that you’d like. When you’ve decided you’re done, simply tie the two ends together by putting your string through there and then creating a little bit of a neat knot.

Then you can simply cut the rest of your thread to loosen it. I like to leave a little space right here to be able to put the tie on. For this one we’re going to use jute, but you can use a wire if you’d like. Simply take your jute and string it through here. Then tie your loop to create the hanger. Once that’s tied you can clip the ends off or adjust it if you need it to be a different size.

Up next we’re going to add a cute little bow embellishment. For the bow we just want to take our hot glue and put it right onto the center of this already made bow. Then place the bow right where the jute is. Press it and hold it until it secures and there you have a charming little wreath for your Christmas tree.

For our red tree we used 12 red berry picks, 50 Nordic-themed ornaments, 15 porcelain star ornaments, 20 red ornaments, 20 white ornaments, 3 strands of red and green vintage-style glass garlands, a beaded tree topper and red striped ribbon. This tree has a more traditional color palette using reds and whites.

We’re starting with red berry picks which I love to use to add another layer of warmth to the tree. Then we’re going to bring in our ornaments in various shades of red, white and our Scandinavian-themed ornaments to create a charming look. I also love to use a vintage-inspired glass garland on this tree which I feel is a perfect finishing touch.

I wanted to share a quick tip about using those longer ornaments like this on your tree. When you’re decorating your tree with different size ornaments take the larger ornaments and set them deeper into the branches inside to add some depth and some layers of the ornaments.

Then you want to take your longer ornaments like this and you’re going to hang them on the outer branches so that they can dangle down. This creates a nice layered effect and also shows that there’s much more going on with the tree than just ornaments on the outside or just on the inside. It’s beautiful layers that really let your tree stand out.

What I love about this tree is that it feels very warm with old-fashioned Christmas charm and tradition. It makes me think of memories of Christmas past and of all the beauty and magic the Christmas season brings.

For our small animal ornament, you need a small bottlebrush animal, a 4 to 6 inch gold embroidery hoop, jute string, scissors and a hot glue gun and glue sticks. To make our cute little animal ornaments we’re going to take an ornament that we already have or if you don’t you can add a string to an existing little animal. These are like little bottlebrush animals, so I just have them ready to go. You want to use an embroidery hoop in a small size and some optional greens if you want to add those as well.

To get started, you want to take your glue and put it onto your embroidery hoop. Then you want to take your little animal and somehow attach it, however it works best. You can always add a little bit of extra glue if you need to to make sure that it stays. Then give it a second to dry and there you go.

For the hoop, I’m taking just this already there wire and just tying it right above the rabbit. I’m going to add a tiny bit more with the hot glue gun and just add a little glue to secure it. Then we’re going to be done with that.

If you want to add the embellishment, I’ve got some dried leaves here. You can use whatever you’d like. You want to take your embellishment and go down here so it looks like they’re sitting in the forest. Just add a bit of glue to your hoop and then you can put your greenery right on there and give it a second to hold before pulling it away. Then if you want to do more on this side you simply just take and repeat on the other side.

If you have too much and you feel like you want to cut it off, like there’s this little piece of branch here, so I’m just going to cut that off. Otherwise, that’s it. There’s your cute little animal woodland-inspired ornament that is perfect for hanging on the tree and enjoying this holiday season.

For our blush tree we used 24 gold pip berry picks, 60 rose and blush color ornaments, 12 gold ornaments, 10 burgundy ornaments, 30 vintage blush ornaments, 10 vintage pearl ornaments, gold glitter ribbon and a rose gold metallic tree topper.

Our non-traditional neutral tree starts with these beautiful gold berries. I love the elegant look they bring and also that they add that extra layer of glimmer. Up next we’re bringing in our various shades of blush, pink, white and gold ornaments along with a few vintage bobbles to create a warm and elegant neutral look.

I love the way that this tree, even though it has a little bit of color, it’s neutral enough that it can fit into any room in your room and look absolutely beautiful.

A tip for using picks on your slim tree is to actually take that full pick and just break it up into smaller sections. Use these smaller sections in places like the top of the tree to add that beautiful touch without overwhelming it.

I love using beautiful shades of those softer colors for a neutral look for Christmas. The rosy tones of the blush on this tree really warm up the look and make the tree feel very elegant. I also love that using the neutral color palette for Christmas trees can work perfectly to create a beautiful and welcoming look in any room.

For our vintage-inspired bottlebrush tree ornament, you need a one and a half inch to 3-inch bottlebrush tree, a 20-millimeter wood bead, or small feather tree glass ornament, hot glue gun and glue sticks and jute string.

For our next ornament, we’ve got simple, little, cute little Christmas trees that are bottlebrush trees, that are in a mini size like you would have maybe in a dollhouse. Then, we’ve got two options for creating the base of the ornament. We’ve got our wood beads that we’re using, and also, these little, tiny, mini feather tree ornaments that you can use if you’d like.

What you want to do is you want to take the ornament cap off, if using this ornament. Then, add a little bit of hot glue, and then, just take your tree, press it on there, and let it dry. As an alternative, you can also take a bead and simply put the glue right onto the bead, and then, press your tree onto it.

To add the string, I’ve got two options here. You can either use a jute or a wire or you can use something like this, which is a little gold string that’s just from another ornament. If you’re using something like this, you simply just take it and tie it right onto the top of your tree. Just loop it into the bristles so that it’s hidden, and you can pull it through so you can see that it’s hidden there, and then, you can tie it.

Once you’ve tied it, tie the top to create the loop. You can cut off any excess if you’d like. There you have a sweet, charming, vintage-inspired Christmas tree ornament. I hope that this inspires your Christmas decorating this holiday season. For more Christmas decorating tips and tricks, please visit the Balsam Hill blog.

There’s something about a Charlie Brown tree that just makes me happy! I don’t love clutter and the holidays are definitely the time when our house feels the most full. Keeping the Christmas décor simple makes me feel less stressed and helps me to actually enjoy the season. Here are my best tips on how to decorate a sparse Christmas tree, and bonus… it only costs a few dollars!

This tree was real (from our yard), but sparse Christmas trees are definitely trending this year and there are some really pretty faux ones too!

Where to find sparse Christmas trees

There are so many realistic faux Christmas trees to choose from, these are some of my favourite sparse trees! They look minimal and clean and are simple to decorate.

How to add lights to a sparse Christmas tree

Most faux trees will come already lit ( I prefer this way, it’s just so much easier to deal with). But if your tree is real or unlit, I like to add twinkle lights or fairy lights instead of more traditional Christmas lights (that usually come on a thicker green cord). It gives a lighter more twinkly look to the tree.

Tip: Find twinkle lights that plugin rather than the battery-operated ones. You will go through A LOT of batteries over the course of a season and it’s a pain to keep changing them. The plugin twinkle light strings are also much brighter than the battery-operated ones.

How to choose decorations for sparse Christmas trees

When you are decorating a sparse tree, you don’t want the ornaments to overwhelm it! Minimal is best. Think of a Scandinavian style Christmas theme with lots of natural elements, neutrals and rustic touches. You also want the ornaments to be lightweight as the branches can be less sturdy than those of a more full tree.

For this tree, I chose vintage brass bells, dried orange slices, wooden cutouts and neutral round glass ornaments to create an understated but festive look.

VINTAGE BELLS

Vintage brass bells add beautiful sparkle to your tree and they are light enough not to weight down the thinner branches.

DRIED ORANGE SLICES

It’s easy to dry orange slices to make garland or hang individual slices on the tree. They act as beautiful, natural ornaments and they smell delicious.

WOODEN CUTOUTS

Simple cutout wooden shapes make a nice contrast to the sparkle of the twinkle lights and the brass bells.

NEUTRAL ROUND ORNAMENTS

I added a few more traditional ornaments to balance the shapes of the bells and wooden cutouts.

I couldn’t find the colours of ornaments that I wanted (white, matte black and muted green) so I took some dollar store ornaments that I already owned and spray painted them to get the desired effect!

I simply taped the tops and spray-painted them outside. It was cold that day!

I love how they turned out!

How to decorate the base of a sparse Christmas tree

I like to keep decorations and gifts at the base of a sparse tree minimal as well! It looks more balanced than a heavy tree collar or a ton of wrapped gifts! (And we traditionally only bring out the presents on Christmas Eve anyway!)

To keep this tree looking natural and Nordic, I found a large white plant pot that would hold the tree stand and then covered the base of the tree with dried moss. It almost looks like it’s still at home out in the forest!

A striped blanket adds some softness, and small gifts wrapped in neutral paper and corralled in baskets keep the base from feeling cluttered.

It all depends on your preferences and imagination. There are no clear rules - make the Christmas tree colorful or more concise by choosing one or more primary colors.

The traditional holiday color is red. It pairs perfectly with green, gold and white. You won't go wrong with these shades.

How to decorate a Christmas tree for the New Year 2022

Published:

How to decorate a Christmas tree for the New Year: Pexels

The tradition of putting up a Christmas tree on Christmas and New Year's Eve originated in Germany in the Middle Ages. The ritual tree was decorated with apples or other fruits and sweets. In the modern world, thanks to technology and a wide choice of decor, Christmas trees are real works of art.

General rules and scale in decorating a Christmas tree 2022

Decorating a Christmas tree is an art that has its own rules and trends. To prevent the New Year tree from becoming the epitome of philistinism and vulgarity, it is important to approach the creative process with inspiration and create a plan for decorating the main symbol of the New Year.

How to decorate the Christmas tree for the New Year 2022? Decide in what style the Christmas tree will be decorated, and choose which decor elements should prevail - bows, natural materials, luminous garlands, all kinds of toys. Here are some options for decorating the Christmas tree with toys in the year of the Black Water Tiger:

  • Christmas balls of the same color and the same size. This decor looks stylish, concise and neat. The option is suitable for a small Christmas tree.
  • Different decorations in the same color. Decor in monochrome, but with different decorations looks elegant and original. Balls, bells, bows, stars, deer in gold tones are an excellent choice that the owner of the year, the Tiger, will like.
  • Identical toys in different colors. In such a combination, balls, bows or bells would be appropriate. This Christmas tree decor is a perfectionist's dream!
  • Various toys and colours. It looks cute and soulful. Try not to use more than five colors.
  • Homemade jewelry. They can be made from any improvised means - paper and cardboard, PVC, natural materials. Elena Dobrova in the book "Snowflakes" suggests decorating the Christmas tree with sparkling or voluminous paper snowflakes.

Today there are many ways to hang decorations on a Christmas tree. Here are the 3 most popular techniques:

  1. Ring method. Hang decorations in a circle: large Christmas toys at the bottom, and small ones closer to the top. Garlands and a brilliant rain fasten on the branches of the Christmas tree in a circle.
  2. Spiral version. Start by hanging the garland in a spiral from top to bottom. Of the huge variety of types of garlands, Cosmopolitan magazine suggests choosing a garland-thread for decorating a Christmas tree, which is very convenient to place on a tree in any way. Fill empty spaces with toys and other decor.
  3. Vertical type. Hang the garland from top to bottom in clear lines. Fill in the gaps with bows, balloons or other toys.

In order to earn the favor of the patron of the year and bring good luck, love and prosperity to the house, it is important to appease the Tiger. Therefore, decorate the Christmas tree in colors that are pleasant to him.

What colors to decorate the Christmas tree for the New Year 2022? According to the eastern calendar, the year of the Blue or Black Water Tiger is coming. Here are the colors you can use:

  • champagne, gold, yellow or brown;
  • turquoise, blue, blue, green;
  • black, white and silver.

The tiger does not like too bright and defiant colors, so you should give up red. As for combinations of tones, the most successful are:

  • champagne, gold and green;
  • ivory green and light grey;
  • brown, beige and yellow;
  • blue, silver and turquoise.

The monochrome design of the Christmas tree and the general decor of the room in the Water Tiger's favorite color scheme does not lose ground.

Trends and styles of decorating the Christmas tree 2022

Interior design in a certain stylistic direction is considered a manifestation of good taste. This also applies to decorating the main attribute of the New Year - the evergreen beauty of the Christmas tree.

In what style to decorate the Christmas tree for the New Year 2022? Choose one of the most trendy stylistic directions:

  • Ecostyle. Laconic style with an emphasis on naturalness. Any objects of natural origin will become decorations on the Christmas tree - cones, acorns, oranges or tangerines, cinnamon sticks, coffee grains. A garland of acorns and chestnuts looks great. Cone toys can be covered with gold or silver paint, sprinkled with glitter, or left as is. So that they do not lose their shape, the author of the book "Crafts for Boys" Svetlana Rashchupkina recommends collecting cones in the rainy season or just on wet soil.

  • Glamor. The main slogans of the style are luxury, brilliance, radiance, which the Water Tiger likes. Adherents of luxury are advised to decorate the Christmas tree with golden sparkling balls, many garlands, lush bows and candles.
  • Scandinavian style. The main features of the Scandinavian style are simplicity, practicality, clear lines and restrained elegance. All shades of white are used in this decor. They symbolize the harsh northern winter with its endless snow-white covers. For decor, use a minimum of elements: toys made of natural materials in silver, white and blue, plain white lanterns, reindeer figurines. Scandinavian style does not tolerate excessive thoughtfulness and stiffness.

  • Shabby chic. The style originated in England and became the embodiment of the traditions of the prudish inhabitants of Foggy Albion. Its main attributes are beautiful things with history, lace, bows, vintage jewelry. To make vintage lace bows, place the fabric in a weak tea solution, dry it, tie a beautiful bow, add a thin string of beads - the original decoration is ready. When decorating a shabby chic Christmas tree, use beads and sophisticated pendants in the form of hearts, stars, flowers.
  • Retro style. The main focus is nostalgia for the festive atmosphere of the 1980s-1990s. Look in the closets for Christmas decorations from your childhood - colored glass balls, cones, clocks that show five minutes to midnight, figures of bears, deer. Show the children how the holidays were when no one knew about Santa Claus. An excellent addition to the design will be the figures of Santa Claus and the Snow Maiden, which are placed under the Christmas tree. The author of the book "Paper Crafts" Lyubov Churina suggests making them from cardboard, paper, papier-mâché.
