Quirky Christmas Décor

We’ve searched the World Wide Web for one-of-a-kind Christmas ornaments that add more fun and excitement to the Yuletide season


We’ve heard it countless times – we have the longest Christmas season in the world. As early as September, we’re already bringing out the Christmas tree that will be adorned with red poinsettias and dazzling balls in silver and gold. When you step out of the house, Christmas lights will greet you and the usual decor or stars and parols line our main thoroughfares.

Through the years, we can’t help but be more creative when it comes to Christmas decorating. Some craft unique trees while others recycle items found at home to make their space unique. If you’re still looking for the right dose of inspiration to make this year’s celebration a cut above the rest, we found a couple of quirky trees and décor that may just spark your creativity. Remember, involving the whole family when it comes to decorating is still the best way to go!

Kurt Adler Upside Down Christmas Tree

Got lots of gifts? This upside down Christmas tree will be perfect! This Christmas tree was introduced a few years back to address the concerns of less-spacious areas. Imagine, instead of the wide base taking up the space, only the tip of the tree will take up precious floor area. You don’t just get more space for gifts, decorating will be so much fun – upside down.
