Christmas Tree Decorating Themes
Christmas ornaments and lights add beauty to our Christmas tree.

This would give you great ideas which would give you scope to innovate.
Put a couple of snowmen as Christmas tree decorations. Keeping in spirit with the theme, use crystal clear snowflake ornaments. You could also add miniature wooden sleds. Add white glass balls to complete the effect. You would definitely require a tree skirt to keep all those Christmas gifts, won't you? Go for the pure white one for the snowy effect.
Does the winter and 'snow' on your Christmas tree remind you of Happy Feet? Add a couple of penguin ornaments riding on snowflakes! You could either use Christmas ornaments or cut pictures of penguins and the snowman.
Alternatively, you can cut angel shapes from paper and color them accordingly. Do not forget to hang magic wands. Let them work as you make your wish every night. Let the angels peep at you from the heavens by hanging stars on your tree. This effect can be provided using twinkling white lights.
Another option is to buy small, round or oval flat pieces of wood. Stick pictures of family members on each side and hang these pieces using ribbons. You can use small and light picture frames or insert photos shrunk in clear balls that can be opened.
Are you good with working on computers? Decorate your Christmas tree with CDs, floppy disks with Christmas poems, photos of family, and friends with words of greetings on them.
If you can use computers and music, then why not your favorite sport? If it is baseball that you love, hang miniature baseball bats, gloves and balls on your tree. Your Christmas tree decorations can also include pictures of your favorite baseball star.
These were just a few of the most feasible and interesting Christmas tree themes, that can be managed within a short deadline.
