Classic Red Green Christmas Tree Inspiration

SHARE

Do you love red and green for Christmas? We do! This classic red and green Christmas tree will give you some fresh ideas for the upcoming season. It will be here soon!

Christmas Tree

This is a large tree at about 12′ in ht. The bottom of this tree is about 7′ in width. It’s not your typical living area Christmas tree, but if you have one this size, you know it takes a tall ladder to decorate. Be safe!

Large wooden signs make quite a statement on this red and green Christmas tree. Below we will list some of the items used on the tree.

Rachel and Carrie decorated the tree for the Trendy Tree retail store. So, if you’re in the area, stop by and visit. We’re located on Marion St, right off the square in Pontotoc, MS.

Tips on Hanging Ornaments

Different textures and sizes of ornaments were placed on the red green tree. Place the larger ornaments toward the median of the tree and smaller ones further out. Ornaments should be hanging freely and not resting on branches.

Tips on Sprays and Pick

Picks and sprays were added to the red and green Christmas tree after they  had been “fluffed” out. Rarely is there ever a case that a spray can be removed from a box and placed on a tree without spreading the leaves, bending here and there. Giving it a more natural shape for instance.

Usually the sprays can just be slid along the limbs of the tree. You can always bend a tree twig around them if needed, but remember, you have to take this tree down too!

Signs

Tips on Placing Signs

Remember that ours was a very large tree and could handle big signs fairly easily. Always secure signs well and never just nestle in the tree. If you purchase a sign that is too large once you start to decorate, you can always for instance incorporate it into other decorations in the room. You can use easels to place signs on hearths, mantels or tabletops. You can use them for door hangers by just adding a pretty bow.

Garland

G3521966 RAZ Red Flocked Garland

G3706914 RAZ Pine Garland with Red Balls

Tips of Placing Garland

It’s always difficult to know how much garland you need for a tree. It all depends on the size of the tree. But a good place to start is 9′ of garland for every foot of Christmas tree. That particular calculation would have been way off for this red green Christmas tree since it’s wide. Always buy more than you think you will need. You can always use it in other places throughout the house.

Ribbon is a good alternative to garland and much less expensive.

Summary

We have more trees to show you and some of them will go into detail more about how to add ribbon to your tree. The red green Christmas tree wasn’t quite finished when the video was made but you can get the gist of the style of decorating that was used. Combine classic green colors of lime and emerald and shades of red. The classic red green Christmas tree lends itself well to old fashioned Christmas decorations that are sure to please.

    Good morning!
    I just discovered your website, and I’m beyond excited!!! I wish you had a store in Houston or were going to be at The Nutcracker Market! Do you have any videos on how to make your pretty tree tops? Are you using sprays, and if you are, how do you fasten them?
    Thanks!

      So glad you found us! We just opened our store in Pontotoc, MS and we will be doing Celebration Village in Tupelo, MS in October. We have many more videos and tutorials to get out which will include some tree toppers. On the sprays, the longer sprays are usually just slid in along branches, they don’t usually require any securing. But a shorter one perhaps is just secured by twisting the tree branches over it. On a live tree…it’s a little more difficult but you can use a bit of green floral wire if needed since it won’t show.
