4 Christmas tree designs using one tree. Plus best gift ideas for the whole family with limited deals and discounts.

If there’s one constant decoration in every home at Christmastime, it is definitely the Christmas tree. I remember spending most of my Christmas shopping budget on ornaments and lights every year. With all the ideas and themes that I have on my mind and all the new designs coming out every year, you are bound to come home with big bags of assorted Christmas items each time you go to the mall. Though as the years go by and as life gets more expensive, I realized that it’s time to be practical and save a lot by reusing and redesigning instead. So after collecting a good number of items, I started looking up for themes where I can incorporate my old ornaments.

Sharing with you a convenient and safe way of shopping this Christmas. Take advantage of the limited deals that you’ll find here for decorations and gifts in the comforts of your home. (Canada Amazon links)

1 Christmas Tree, 4 Unique Designs

Tree number 1: Nanay’s Poinsettia Tree

This was my first recycled version of our old tree with the theme “poinsettia”. My mother’s favorite design for Christmas, being a flower and garden enthusiast. She loves flowers of all kinds and prefers the classic Christmas colors of red and gold, mainly to invite good luck to our home. I bought these artificial poinsettias at the mall and bazaars at a cheap price then mixed with the capiz -made parols (star) and angels for that sparkly and glamorous appeal.

Tree number 2: Tree of Life

The next year, I changed the color theme to hues of blue, green and yellow with sparkling leaf ornaments that were sold in bunches that I used separately to be able to distribute all over the tree. I also used inexpensive items like plastic pears, balls and 4 rolls of ribbons to make a large bow tree topper and then made the rest of it flow down the tree.

1 Christmas Tree, 4 Unique Designs

Tree number 3: Color- full Tree

As you can see here, I re-used all the previously bought items and just added a new color of poinsettias (green and white). My idea is to create a very colorful and joyful Christmas tree using my old red poinsettias and sparkly leaves. I was able to save a lot that year because I only spent about P100 for the 5 bunches of poinsettias bought from the sidewalk vendor.

Tree number 4: Tree-full of Stuffies

Now this was my favorite tree of all. Because this time, I used my son’s collection of stuffed toys to create a fun and unique design. Thankfully he was happy about the idea and gladly helped me hang some stuffies on the tree. Some of the stuffies were heavy so what we did is to tie them up on the main branches using colorful ribbons to serve as part of the decoration. I did not spend anything for the tree that year but I believe that it’s the most meaningful and unique of all the trees that I ever designed so far.

So next time you think of a theme or design, look around at home to make use of nice items in the house that can showcase your travel souvenirs for example, or your children’s lego creations and small toy collection as ornaments. Just hang them using glittery and colorful ribbons for more Christmasy vibe. You may also use old Christmas cards or postcards to hang or have a fun time making art works at home by cutting out glittery stars or hearts with your kids for that personalized touch. I’m sure they’d be very happy to hang their masterpieces on your tree after.

Have you ever wondered where Christmas trees began?

Did You Know That... The history of Christmas trees goes back to the symbolic use of evergreens in ancient Egypt and Rome and continues with the German tradition of candle lit Christmas trees first brought to America in the 1800s. Discover the history of the Christmas tree, from the earliest winter solstice celebrations to Queen Victoria’s decorating habits and the annual lighting of the Rockefeller Center tree in New York City.

How Did Christmas Trees Start?

Long before the advent of Christianity, plants and trees that remain green all year had a special meaning for people in the winter. Just as people today decorate their homes during the festive season with pine, spruce, and fir trees, ancient peoples hung evergreen boughs over their doors and windows. In many countries it was believed that evergreens would keep away witches, ghosts, evil spirits, and illness.


I hope that you were able to get some ideas to use on your next Christmas tree project. Enjoy decorating and happy saving!!

Continue the bonding time at home this Covid-19 pandemic and have fun decorating with the whole family.
