A patriotic themed Christmas tree is very nice way to celebrate Christmas to show that we are proud to be Americans. It also shows that we salute and honor those who serve our country to protect the freedom we all enjoy. This is also a great way to show and teach children patriotism.
Having a patriotic theme Christmas tree to easy make and accomplish because there is no guessing on what the base color to work with should be. Red, white and blue. Things cant get any easier than that.
Thanks to the elections last year, Treetopia is able to offer the Stephen J. Colbert National Treasure Tree for $299. You don’t even need to decorate if you do so choose. Just add a few lights and you’re done.
I prefer using a white Chritmas tree for this project. Table tops white trees may cost $39. Or if you opt for the floor standing trees, a 4′ or higher, expect to pay close to $119 to 399.
If you opt for the table top, you may decorate the mini white tree with very small blue and red balls. Ass a small bow ribbon (patriotic theme preferably) and your done! Simple yet classy!
Now, if you are really going all out on the patriotic theme, you might want to invest on a wide and bushy spruce. You may actually use both the red and blue lights. Use different red and blue shaped simple ornaments. Put the bigger one on the back and smaller ones up closer. This will give your tree a nice glow especially when the light are reflected. If you choose, using a patriot theme ribbon. Make little bows and scatter them around. For the top, make a huge dark blue bow and secure. Use the remaining ribbon to add a “flowing” look. Plug, stand back and enjoy.
Of course you may use other patriotic and Americana decors and ornaments if you shoose to. There are a few store that caters to patriotic/Americana collectibles and decors. To name a few:
- Flag and Banner – Flag and banner offers an array of patriotic themed decors and ornaments. From the basic patriotic ball to the cute “freedom fries” to the adorable “pa-tree-otism” to the dainty “lady liberty” glass ornament, you will be able to find something that will not only look great on your tree, but also can be passed. Most glass ornaments from this store are made in Inge-glas workshops in Germany. The place where heirloom quality glass ornaments are usually from.
- Arkansas Flag and Banner – Arkansas Flag and Banner has a storefront in Amazon. Their ornaments start as low as $3.22 Check out their Americana rooster ornament. They also have cute Uncle Sam nut cracker for $26. 71. What’s the holidays without a nutcracker right?
