The Most Amazing Nautical Christmas Tree is a fun way to bring seaside elements indoors. Why stick to the tradition of a green and red themed tree when you can do something a little bit different?
I found this designer decorated tree while attending the Festival of Trees in Burlington, Washington.
It’s so fun to see the variety of holiday themes during this time of year. I wanted to make sure my readers got a glimpse of some of these treasures too.
“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where no one intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.”Lord Byron

Here’s the Amazing Nautical Christmas Tree:
1. Nautical Christmas Tree
From the top of the tree to the bottom, every element of this tree is nautical.
A lot of time and effort went into locating the perfect ingredients to make this tree a work of art. They started with a flocked tree, reflecting the ocean foam occurred when waves crash ashore.
I think using a white tree was wise because all the nautical Christmas tree ornaments popped.
Mixing vintage nautical ornaments and new Christmas tree decorations would be the perfect combination.
2. Nautical Christmas Themed Tree Topper
The steering wheel of a boat is the perfect idea for topping a nautical Christmas tree. I love that fun items like netting and a metal crab were added to draw attention to the top of the tree.
3. Christmas Tree Nautical Buoys
Real vintage buoys were used which gave a more rustic look to the tree.
4. Christmas Tree Lanterns
This idea is simply brilliant. The designers took lanterns and added large shells to them.
Behind the shells, they added the lights already encircling the tree to make the shells shine brightly from the lanterns.
Dotting nautical lanterns throughout your home with lighted shells would add to the fun.
5. Christmas Tree Glass Fishing Floats
These gorgeous reproduction glass fishing floats were once used by fishermen all over the world to keep their fishing nets, longlines or droplines afloat.
6. Nautical Christmas Fishing Nets
Using fishing nets to tuck among the branches is a fun way to add texture to your tree.
7. Nautical Themed Oars
Adding a colorful oar to your tree is easy when you angle it, so only the top and bottom peek out.
8. Nautical Themed Christmas Tree Rope and Driftwood
Adding pieces of driftwood and rope to the base adds time-worn character to your display.
Here are some ideas I found on Amazon so you can recreate the look of the Nautical Christmas Tree:

Maine Lobster Trap Buoy
Aren’t these nautical lobster trap buoys adorable? They come in a variety of different colors.
These lanterns are great for year-round decorating. You can change out the contents of the lanterns to compliment the season or holiday.
I’m pretty obsessed with shells. They add such natural beauty to a home. I think these would look gorgeous in the lanterns.
