Creative Black Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas
A black Christmas tree is an excellent choice for anyone looking to bring a little fun into the holiday season. It’s a classic symbol of Christmas and of the holiday season in general. It’s perfect for a bachelor party or a holiday at someone’s house where decorating is usually not encouraged.
It’s a popular choice because it’s so versatile and can be used for just about any holiday, from the traditional Xmas tree to a holiday-themed Christmas card. Here are some tips to make your holiday decorating fun.
Decorating a black Christmas tree is fairly simple if you have your basic tools handy. You’ll need a sheet of cardboard and, if you’re going with a white Christmas tree, glitter on top of that. If you have long pieces of string, use them to make your tree appear more like a real one. String the glitter onto the cardboard and then attach it to the branches of the tree. This way, your tree will have a realistic effect – even if it’s just partially covered in glitter.
One thing to keep in mind when decorating your black Christmas trees is that they don’t exactly match every style of gift you get. So while you might want to use the typical red and green colors for a male or female Christmas present, that doesn’t mean you can’t find black presents that come in other colors, such as gold or silver. In fact, this is a great time to add a bit of variety to your collection of gifts.
After all, the classic gift of black is both elegant and masculine, so you can use it with other gifts to really pull the look together. You might even decide to give black Christmas trees to those who’ve been left out of the traditional style this year, such as senior citizens or those with disabilities.
Along with decorating your tree in all black, you also need to do some other decorations. Some fun things to do are hanging bells (to mark the season), using old Christmas cards to make an interesting collage, and painting everything black. Of course, you could skip all of the above and go with some simple, elegant black tablecloths and curtains instead. Just make sure you keep the theme in mind when you’re choosing your other decorations.
For a more unique approach to decorating your tree, why not turn it into a haunted house? Instead of using black and white lights, use orange and black electrical tape to outline each frame on your tree. You’ll also be able to decorate each room with either black or orange rugs, so there’s definitely something to spooky black and white with.
You’ll also want to add some extra touches to make your tree a truly special place to hang out. Decorate the tree in black and wrap a large Christmas bow around it, just like you did when you were young. Then, you’ll want to add some garland to the branches to make them look extra festive.
A fun project that you can do while sitting around the tree is to make snowmen! You’ll need black construction paper, construction scissors, glitter, a glue gun, and a variety of little glass ornaments that are black in color.
To make the snowmen, simply trace the shape of a snowman on the black paper, cut out a hole in the bottom part, and poke four or five holes in the top for his feet. Next, glue each ornament to the branches of the tree, and you’ll have a cute little snowman to put on your tree.
And if you’re feeling creative, why not make a Santa Clause out of black felt. After all, you don’t have to be very artistic to make something special. Cut strips of black fabric to the same size as the bottom of your Santa’s paws, and poke two holes for his toes. Cut black felt into different shapes, and you’ll have a cute little Santa to bring into the house on Christmas morning.
