Ceramic Christmas trees make your home glow
In the 1960s and 1970s when making ceramics was still a popular past time, ceramic Christmas trees were a common gift during the holiday season. Like Christmas cards or holiday sweaters, they are relevant and put out on display during the wintertime and a great way to add a little bit more Christmas cheer to your life. If you have never seen a ceramic Christmas tree before, they are miniature Christmas trees between 10 to 20 inches or so. They are symmetrically adorned with light bulbs that are the size of the standard-sized Christmas trees. Because of the miniature nature of the ceramic Christmas tree, it can easily be placed in almost any nook and cranny of the house. Truly, a versatile solution to spreading a little bit of Christmas cheer about your home.
The majority of designs you’ll find for ceramic Christmas trees will fall under one of two styles. The first is the all white tree. The all white ceramic tree often features a single color for the bulbs that adorn it and has a more elegant appearance. The other common design is a bit more festive and cheerful. The ceramic portion of the tree is painted with green strokes that mimic pine needles and snow, and the light bulbs on the green ceramic Christmas tree are multicolored like you would find on a regular Christmas tree. Both styles feature a traditional holiday star at the top of the tree. Of course, these two styles are hardly exclusive. You can easily find white ceramic Christmas trees with multicolored lights and green ceramic Christmas trees with single colored lights. If you want to customize the light scheme of your tree, you can even replace the ceramic Christmas tree lights yourself.
If you’re tired of sending just a holiday card to your family and friends this season, consider sending them an early Christmas gift to remind them that they’re on your mind this Christmas. Ceramic Christmas trees are delicate and elegant holiday decoration that can be used every year in the winter. They make excellent seasonal mantelpieces and centerpieces.
For those that want to splurge, you can even find ceramic Christmas trees with music boxes built into the base of the tree. Your ceramic Christmas tree can belt out classic songs such as: Ode to Joy, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Jingle Bells, Green Sleeves, Silent Night, or Jingle Bell Rock. Christmas decorations give off light, gingerbread men fill the house with Christmas smells, and your ceramic Christmas tree can emit music so that holiday cheer permeates your home in every conceivable way.
Add a new tradition to your house this holiday season. When you’re lugging out the old box of Christmas lights and tree decorations, pull out the ceramic Christmas tree. Try placing it in a room where the glow of the main tree doesn’t reach. Bedrooms, libraries, and dens are great locations for a ceramic Christmas tree in your home.
