First off, I am excited to announce that I am the newest brand ambassador for Treetopia! This holiday season I will be sharing my love of colorful and traditional Christmas trees with you all. But first, lets talk fall trees!
I love Christmas, and I may have more trees than I have rooms to put them in, but until Treetopia asked me to decorate an orange Christmas tree for fall, I had never even considered putting up a tree other than during the holidays. But after a little creative thinking about how to decorate the tree, I came up with the perfect idea, colorful fall leaves! I was a little sceptical at first that my idea would turn out, but I surpased my wildest hopes and dreams and created the most gorgeous fall tree. Hopefully after you see how to decorate an orange tree for fall, you will feel the need to run out and scoop up an orange Christmas tree of your own to decorate this fall.
How to Decorate an Orange Tree for Fall
For this fall tree, I started with the orange Christmas tree and layered in faux flower stems in light pink, peach, orange, and yellow. Then I added a few large faux magnolia flowers and matte pink ornaments. The final touch and the piece that really made this falling leaves fall tree are the folded cardstock leaves. To make this I cut 12″ by 12″ pieces of card stock into two triangles and then accordian folded the triangle in 1/2″ folds starting from the long end and working towards the tip. Once complete, fold the two ends towards each other to create the leaf shape. Then tape the fold together to make the leaf shape.
I made around 24 of these leaves and tucked them into the tree to create a rainbow of fall color changing leaves in my orange fall tree.
