Tropical Ocean Christmas Tree

Tropical Ocean Christmas Tree

I’ve been wanting to do a tropical ocean Christmas tree for quite some time, but it was REALLY hard to convince the kids to change things up. They really like the red and gold of the holiday season, but when I found coral and turquoise glitter ornaments at the 99 Cents Only Store, I took it as a sign that it was time to make my tropical ocean Christmas tree happen!

Now, I’m not one to drop a ton of cash on Christmas ornaments all at once. Instead, I like to gather special pieces over time. Since this was my first year decorating a tropical ocean themed Christmas tree, I didn’t have a ton of ornaments that fit this theme. So, in order to decorate this tree, I relied heavily on my craft stash. I used netting, raffia, shells, sea glass, and past seashell crafts to decorate the tree.

3 Simple Glitter Seashell Ornaments

For the ‘tree garland’, I embellished a plain craft netting with sea glass and shells and also wrapped the tree in raffia to give it a tropical vibe. Next, I added the coral and turquoise ornaments from the 99 and filled the tree with gold, silver, and red ornaments from my ornament collection. You may think red is an odd color with the coral and turquoise, but the red really made the tree ‘pop’ and without it, the tree didn’t look festive enough.

Finally, to fill in the spaces, I added glittered seashells, sea glass and seashell angel ornaments, mini seashell star ornaments, seahorse ornaments, a few gold fishes, and some gold poinsettias. I think the poinsettias gave the tree a tropical vibe as a lot of trees in Hawaii will have poinsettias on them.

I’m hoping to build on this tropical ocean Christmas tree over the next few years and would like to add some dark blues with more sea creature ornaments. But for now, I’m happy with the results, which remind me of being home in Hawaii.
