Are you tired of big, gaudy, over-the-top Christmas trees? Do you want something different this year? Making Christmas truly your own. Well, you’re not alone. Many people yearn for some variety.
So, they got their creative juices flowing and came up with some great alternatives. Goodbye, boring old fir tree!
If you’re looking for something special this year, you’ve come to the right place. No matter if you like colors or prefer a more minimalist style, there’s something for everyone.
Here’s our pick of top 5 Christmas tree trends in 2019, and we absolutely love each one of them.
1. Minimalist Tree
Who says Christmas trees need to be sparkly and outrageous? This year, give your eyes a much-needed rest with a minimalist Christmas tree.
Use steel, wood, or other material to build a simple, triangle-shaped structure. It should resemble and serve as a Christmas tree.
To go even more minimalist, replace the Christmas tree with a totally abstract object. Kanye and Kim chose white cotton structures to hint at winter, snow and holidays.
2. Sunflower Tree
Sunflowers may not be the first thing to come to mind when thinking about Christmas. Still, sunflower Christmas trees are the newest trend taking over social media. You can use them as an awesome motif for gold trees, or simply add them for a pop of color.
Use either real or artificial sunflowers and wrap the stems around the branches. You can also simply put them on your regular Christmas tree as an accessory to brighten it up.
3. Cartoon tree
If you’re a cartoon fan or have children, this one is for you! You can easily make this a family project. Use your standard Christmas tree, decorate it in the colors of our favorite cartoon and print out pictures of your favorite characters. Glue them to a piece of cardboard from the both sides, thread them and decorate your tree with them.
This will not only make it more memorable for your children but will help them learn new skills and will provide them with an opportunity to be included in the family’s decision making!
4. Black Tree
Another take on minimalist Christmas tree is making it all black. The best part of it is that you don’t have to buy a whole new tree. Just spray paint the one you already have! It can be a part of a fun Christmas DIY activity for the whole family.
If you’re having doubts about a black Christmas tree, don’t worry, because it’s a huge trend this year. People love how the black background makes their ornaments stand out. For best contrast, choose lighter decorations.
5. Rainbow Tree
Ok, maybe you’re still feeling like you’d be an odd one out if you opted for an all-black Christmas tree. Other people do, too. That’s why another popular trend for this year is getting colorfully wild. Spray paint your tree with rainbow colors - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
This tree will give you that special holiday vibe, but can also serve as a decoration for the LGBT pride month or birthdays. Another bonus? Since the colors make your tree pop all by itself, you don’t have to spend a ton of money on extra ornaments.
