For most countries, Christmas comes with cold weather, so, by default, the prevailing theme for Christmas is winter. This is why you’ll often come across flocked Christmas tree ideas – an imitation of snow on Christmas trees. But what if you decorated your Christmas tree with summer-themed decorations instead of following the usual Christmas decoration? Here are our favorites this holiday season:
1. Bring the Beach to Your Tree
You do not have to think too hard to replicate this decoration. For the most part, all you have to do is replace the usual Christmas decorations on your tree with summer-themed equivalents.
In place of using the usual green Christmas tree, you should use a pale cream, caramel, or golden tree – something reminiscent of beach sand. Next, instead of using regular star ornaments, use a starfish ornament like the one in the picture.
Apart from the starfish ornaments, you can put up other fun ornaments that readily evoke memories of the beach.
2. Make a Coastal Christmas Tree With Driftwood
One of the most exciting activities of summer is spending time at the beach. So, it is no surprise that many of the summer-themed Christmas tree ideas in this article – like this one – are related to the beach. But then, this particular idea – making a driftwood Christmas tree – can move from just another summer idea to a super fun idea.
You and your family can spend time collecting materials for the driftwood tree together. Beyond that, you could spend time creating multiple driftwood Christmas trees and decorating your house with them. Doing all of these together adds some sentimental value to your Christmas tree. But more importantly, you have another lovely holiday memory to cherish.
3. Top the Tree With a Hat
If you are looking to give your coastal Christmas tree some life or personality, you might enjoy replicating this decor. The design might seem basic at first. But then, a tree wearing a hat is a pretty amusing gag.
As you may have noticed yourself, the hat is not the only element in this Christmas tree decoration reminiscent of summer. The hanging fish are also suggestive of summer since anyone hardly goes fishing when it’s winter. But you do not have to hang fish on your own tree; you can use sea glass, sea shells, or any other beach ornament.
4. Regular Christmas Tree Design With Some Elements of Summer
If you want a summer Christmas tree but do not want something too different from the usual tree decorations, here’s an inspiration for you.
This design uses the common type of Christmas green tree with some silver, gold, and blue baubles decoration. Then it brings in some hint of summer using sea shells and starfish ornaments. While this inspiration is gorgeous, if we were to modify it, we will use a more restricted color scheme. We will use azure blue baubles alongside white sea shells and light blue starfish ornaments.
5. Berry Christmas Tree Summer-Themed Idea
This inspiration is one perfect Summer-Themed Christmas Tree Ideas for your dining table. From the picture, you can readily tell how much of a cute idea it is.
Besides being cute, if you are not so skilled at combining different colors and would rather stick with the usual red and green, this should work for you.
6. Summer Christmas In a Jar
This coastal Christmas decoration does not directly involve Christmas trees. However, it was too enchanting for us to leave out of the list.
The process of putting this together might be somewhat simple, but the outcome is nothing short of elegant. The sea shells, sea glass, silver balls, and the mason jar reflect and refract the warm Christmas lights, taking them from bright to glistening. You can have 1-4 jars like this at the base of your tree to complete your summer-themed Christmas tree.
7. Sandman by the Tree
This holiday decoration does not directly involve adorning a summer Christmas tree. But it is very creative and distinctive, so we knew we had to show it to you. Here we have the summer equivalent of a snowman – a sandman or a sand snowman.
This would fit perfectly at the base of a summer themed Christmas tree ideas on a beach house. But even if you are not in a beach house, it will work with your tree just as well.
8. Make Ice Cream Grow on a Christmas Tree
You can bring back the coolness and refreshment of summer if you decorate your Christmas tree with ice cream cutouts. Of course, the pieces of ice cream will not be in people’s mouths. But they would be hanging from a tree before their eyes, and people can work the rest out with their imagination.
If we were to modify this summer-themed Christmas tree idea, we will use a grey or black Christmas tree instead of a pink one. We will also exclude the bigger baubles and make the smaller baubles white.
9. Sunflower Summer Christmas Tree
Sunflowers symbolize summer in many ways. For one, their bright petals resonate the brightness of the sun on a typical summer afternoon. Then again, their form naturally infuses the atmosphere with cheer.
Using golden Christmas ornaments and a brownish ribbon alongside the sunflowers is just perfect. Those 2 colors blend well with the yellow petals of the sunflower.
10. Bloomy Summer-Themed Christmas Tree Idea
If you are big on decorating your coastal Christmas tree with flowers, here is another option to try out. In place of sunflower, this decor uses various flowers of different colors.
One would think having multiple colors will make the decoration excessively loud, but the tones are actually well-balanced. This may be, in part, due to to the spiral arrangement of the flowers.
11. A Baller’s Summer Christmas Tree
How about you turn a regular Christmas tree into a coastal summer-themed Christmas tree idea by using Styrofoam volleyballs as ornaments? Since volleyball season starts in summer, using volleyball as ornaments on Christmas trees should do a sufficient job bringing the summer cheer into the Christmas holidays.
12. Summer and Christmas Fusion
Still, on flower decorations for Christmas trees, this inspiration mixes ample amounts of summer-themed ornaments and regular Christmas tree ornaments. On this tree, you will have flowers, starfish, and pine cones to remind you of summertime at the beach. On the same Christmas tree, you will also have baubles, paper ring chains, and Christmas lights to balance the summer feel.
