    Tired of the same old Christmas tree you’ve had year after year?

    Bored with the hodge-podge of homemade ornaments, flashing lights, and freebie bulbs you’ve gotten from holiday parties?

    Try changing it up this season. With the number of crafters and bloggers active on the web, there’s no shortage of stunning Christmas tree inspo out there.

    Need help getting started? Here are 11 of the most creative-themed Christmas trees we could find:

    Dress your tree like old Saint Nick himself.

    Choose themed ornaments like hats, stockings, sleighs, belts, and more, and swap out the traditional star for a Santa hat on top.

    Try to keep it to a red, white, and gold theme, just like Santa’s outfits.

    2. Save space with a flat Christmas tree.

    All you need are a couple of ornaments and a star for the top, and you’ve got a festive addition that doesn’t take up much real estate.

    3. Go sweet with a Candyland Christmas tree.

    If you have kiddos in the house, this is a fun-themed Christmas tree to take stock of.

    Made completely with lollipops, gingerbread houses, swirly sticks, and other sweet treats, it’s as tasty as it is festive.

    You could even change up the candies to achieve a certain color scheme. (Just be sure to keep John and Jane away from this Candyland Christmas tree until the holidays are through!)

    4. Minimize costs with this grid-like tree.

    5. Go fun and floral for a feminine touch.

    Here’s another great theme decorated Christmas tree for the kids, this time Grinch-themed.

    The majority of the tree is just green and red bulbs and some white ribbon, but you’ll also need a Grinch topper and arms to finish off the look. Try ordering a Grinch stuffed animal on Amazon and then separating the pieces.

    You could also use a wood set like these.

    10. Read into it with this Christmas book tree.

    Line the stacks with a few twinkly lights strings, and pop a star on top for the true Christmas tree look. You could even choose books of a certain color to create patterns or shapes.

    11. Go masculine with this painted tire tree.
