Pretty Purple

Artificial Christmas trees come in every color imaginable, even purple. Spray painting live trees vibrant colors is also an option.

Shining Silver

A rainbow of smaller tabletop trees is a great way to show some color this Christmas without the commitment of a full-sized tree.

Hot Pink

Pink trees scream holiday fun, so don’t just stop with the tree, decorate with extra funky ornaments and small toys.

Glitzy Gold

Gold trees are surprisingly versatile looking fabulous whether you prefer a "chic-mas" or "kitsch-mas".

Tangerine Tannenbaum

Orange does not scream Christmas to most people but with the right decorations, like DIY Straw and Popsicle Stick Snowflakes, it can get you feeling festive fast.

Winter White

White trees can stand almost any decorating theme and color you throw at them. Try making your own DIY Embroidery Hoop Sweater Ornaments as seen here.

Bubble Gum Pink

Colored trees are great for playing up a decorating theme like a sweet-treats tree full of ice cream ornaments.

Metallic Mix

Metallic trees in shades of silver and gold are usually an easy transition for people trying to break away from the traditional green tree.

All Colors

Sometimes a slew of colorful Christmas accessories like ornaments, tree toppers, and DIY No-Sew Felt Tree Skirts are all you need to bring some color to Christmas.

Pale Pink

Experiment with using traditional ornaments in traditional colors on a not-so-traditional tree to make a fun little holiday forest.
