Throw it back to the atomic age, a period between the 1940s and 1960s when design was frequently inspired by the shocking technological progress of the time. People of this era were intrigued by space and atomic science, which was often mirrored in interior style. And how cute is that DIY no-sew tree skirt?

One easy way to create a more traditional, old fashioned Christmas tree is to add an abundance of loose tinsel to your design. Not only does that create a beautiful tinsel, it also transports you back to the holiday seasons of yesteryear — just don’t do this one if you have pets, as the tinsel can harm them if ingested.

6 – Rainbow Ombre Christmas Tree

A woodland Christmas decor theme is especially cute if your home happens to have a cabin feel to it. Your woodland tree should include furry and feathered critters of the forest (especially owls), as well as other motifs like snowflakes, antlers, branches and acorns.
