But when it comes to actually decorating the tree, you’ll always be wondering where to start. So in case you’re still stuck there, here are some DIY ideas to decorate your family Christmas tree!
If you want to do something different this year, try decorating your Christmas tree with faux flowers in various sizes. Create a soft yet dramatic entrance by decking up your tree with a mix of white and cream faux flowers like magnolias, roses, orchids, and lilies clipped to the boughs. Throw a white fabric around the base of the tree to hide the trunk and keep it in sync with the decorations.
Think of a theme and sort your decorative items accordingly. For instance if you’ve picked a colour theme, use a particular colour to deck up your Christmas tree. But remember less is more, so don’t go overboard with a single colour, else your tree won’t look like a tree.

Mix and Match:
Examine your collection of your decorative items closely. You’ll always have lots of things that don’t really go well together. Pick the best ones and mix and match to make your tree look eye-catching.
If you have pets or toddlers then you might want to make your tree baby or pet safe. Consider investing in a table-top tree that’s away from your little one. Don’t worry about making it look pretty, because table-top trees look just as good as their seven-foot siblings.
Standing tall and fruity:
Extend an invitation to the Sugar Plum Fairy with a faux white tree adorned fruit shaped ornaments. It’s jazzy spirit and bright jewel tones popping against the frosty backdrop, can shake up tradition and breathe new life into your more conventional holiday decor elements.
