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!
