It is that time of the year again. As the winter approaches, Christmas preparations also pick up momentum. Decorating the Christmas tree is one of the crucial parts of the Christmas celebration. For many, this can be one of the best childhood memories they cherish for the rest of their life. 

However, people may sometimes struggle to come up with new ideas to decorate their Christmas trees. So, here are some DIY Xmas tree ideas you can try this Christmas.


  • Souvenir

Are you a souvenir lover? Do you like to collect souvenirs from all the places you explore? If yes, it’s time to use them in your Christmas tree. 

Cover your Christmas tree with little inexpensive souvenirs to remind you of a year well spent. Gift some of them to your guests or entertain them with fascinating stories about how and when you procured them.  


  • Tasty Treats

One of the best yet simple Christmas tree decorating ideas is to hide little chocolates or wrapped sweets on the Christmas tree branches. If you’ve kids in your house or expecting them on December 25th, consider this idea to keep them busy. 

You can include two to five different varieties of eatables to spice up your Christmas tree and fire up the little one’s “search operations”. 

  • Pictures

Use this year’s Christmas celebration to revive old and happy memories. Take out the old family photographs, photos from your family trips or celebrations, etc., and hang them all over the Christmas tree. You can also honour the happy memories of loved ones who are no longer around. 

Alternatively, you can start a tradition of taking family photographs with the Christmas tree every year and adding them to the tree. 


  • Traditional

The traditional Christmas tree decoration ideas comprising round ornaments in vibrant colours and lighting arrangements can never go out of fashion. Place the bright gold star on the top of the Christmas tree to complete the traditional look, and you’re ready for the season. 

You can also give an ethnic twist to your traditional Christmas tree by hanging Indian-ethenic ornaments. Rajasthani trinkets, colourful glass Bangles, or imitation jewellery can make your tree stand out, oozing positive energy all around the place. 


  • Bookmarks

If you're an avid reader and a regular book buyer, you may have accumulated countless bookmarks. These bookmarks can become one of the unique Christmas tree ideas that everyone would love. 

Design these bookmarks in various shapes and sizes, like stars, snowflakes, sleighs, or Santa Claus. Now, create different chains containing five to six shapes using thin ropes and wrap them around the Christmas tree. You can further improvise by using old magazine papers to add more shapes to the bookmark chain. 


  • Antiques

Many families can have a great collection of rare antique pieces. For instance, you may possess an old pocket watch of your great-grandfather or a centuries-old candle holder. You can use all these antique items in your decoration and give a vintage look to your Christmas tree.

Apart from the joy and celebrations, decorating for the Christmas tree can be a great way to spend some quality time together with your family and strengthen the bond between family members. So, take this opportunity to teach the next generation the importance of family in a fun-filled way. 

Merry Christmas!
