Create a Colorful Tree

How to decorate a Christmas Tree

This is my absolute favorite way to decorate a tree – it’s elegant but still fun and colorful. I’m going to show you step-by-step how to create a colorful Christmas tree.

I share similar online sources to create the look towards the end of this post.

I began with an unlit artificial Fraser Fir from Balsam Hill. I’ve had it for several years now, and it still looks fantastic (you can see more on this tree HERE).

Create a Colorful Christmas Tree


To begin, I added clear lights to the tree.


Besides the fun color scheme, I think florals are what make this tree so much fun. I found unique faux florals stems at our local craft store (Hobby Lobby).

I cut the bunches into individual stems so I can spread them throughout the tree(s).

Besides the florals, I also added some faux fern stems. I love them because of their delicate, feather look.

I also added some candied cranberry sprays as well.

Here a looks at the tree with all the sprays.

Besides yellows and burgundys, I wanted to add some blues and found these sparkly blue floral stems.

The final floral are some eucalyptus leaves.


I lucked out with finding these candied pear ornaments, but if you don’t have my luck, you can create your own! just hot glue some string to any faux fruit.


The final touch to this colorful tree are classic bulb ornaments. I bought an. inexpensive variety pack of light pink bulbs and love all the finishes and textures.

I also added some classic deep burgundy bulbs and blue (although I forgot to take a photo of the blue) as well.

And that’s it! With some florals, faux fruit, and classic bulbs, you can create a colorful, texture-filled Christmas tree of your dreams!

Seasonal Decor

Colorful Christmas Tree

I wanted to do something a little different this year with my decor this holiday season, so I created a colorful Christmas tree! I used colors from the artwork in our family room to create a fun, festive tree.

But first, if you are visiting from Jenna Kate Design, welcome! I decorated the tree with pink, burgandy, and navy bulbs, and I added in some pear ornaments and DIY lemon ornaments.  I love the color the mini lemon tree I have in my kitchen brings to the space, and since the tree is basically in the kitchen, I decided to tie in the lemons. I also added faux greenery and some yellow floral and candied cranberry sprigs.

I absolutely love my new tree.  It is from King of Christmas, and it’s the 7.5 Foot King Fraser Fir Slim Quick-Shape Artificial Christmas Tree.

Not only is it beautiful, but it fits perfectly in my space.  Thanks to the slim shape, we still have room to walk from the family room into the kitchen.

Supplies Needed for Colorful Christmas Tree:

In my space, I have a moody dark living room and a light white kitchen nook.  I love how the colorful tree looks with both areas of our home, and I also love having a Christmas tree in our kitchen!

When selecting my decor, I tried to think more organically because of the lemons and pears which is why I went with faux greenery over my usual metallic gold accents.

I also decided to not add lights to the tree.  I’ll have a lit tree in the family room, and I felt this one was colorful enough.

 What do you think? Are you a fan of the colorful look? Please visit all of my friends below that are participating in the King Of Christmas Tree Celebration (and a special thanks to Janet of Shabyfufu for organizing this blog hop!
