How to Create a Pinterest-Worthy Christmas Tree

It's December which means it's officially okay to talk about Christmas all the time now! haha. One of my favorite ways to kickstart the holiday season is to decorate my Christmas tree and this year I decided to get more creative and aim for something Pinterest-worthy and unique. Here are some of my best tips for making your tree stand out:

The first step to creating a beautiful Christmas tree is to really think about what kind of theme you're going for. Traditional? Tropical? Black and white? This year, I decided to go with a feminine theme which means tons of bow, roses, and glittery things. There's so many possibilities and tons of inspiration online such as this Breakfast at Tiffany's inspired tree which I plan to recreate next year! Once you have a theme, everything else gets easier since you'll know what kind of ornaments and decor to buy.

Last year, I didn't have any ideas on what kind of colors to work with for my tree so I just bought random ornaments and placed them on the tree and that was that. While the tree looked pretty, there was nothing really special about it since everything was so random. When you stick to a color palette, the tree looks so much more organized and makes it look as if you put in a lot of effort to it. I recommend sticking to four colors or less or else it starts to look messy. I used white, blush pink, gold, and silver.

An easy way to make your tree stand out is to make your own ornaments! Not only is it so much more affordable than buying fancy ornaments but if you can't find anything that will go with your theme then creating them yourself will be so much easier. In my tree, I actually bought some fake roses and white glitter branches placed them all around the tree as well as the big huge bow on top which gave it a unique touch and was a lot cheaper than buying them pre-made.

For some reason, I never found a beautiful star to place on top of my tree so I started looking for other alternatives. Since I was going for a feminine theme, placing a bow on top only seemed natural. I bought some striped ribbon which has built-in wire in order to help give it shape and make it more 3-D and simply tied it a few times in order to make a gigantic bow. It worked perfectly and stood out since it's the only patterned item on my tree. Other ideas that would work instead of a star are feathers, a Santa hat (so cute!), and I've even seen someone place a plastic glitter deer figurine on top!

I hope you gals enjoyed this post! Any other ideas for creating the perfect Christmas tree? I'd love to know!
