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?
“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” – Lord Byron
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.
Here is The Most Amazing Nautical Christmas Tree:
1) The 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.
2) The tree topper.
The steering wheel of a boat is the perfect topper for your tree. I love that fun items like netting and a metal crab were added to draw attention to the top of the tree.
Real vintage buoys were used which gave a more rustic look to the tree.
4) Shell 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.
5) 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) Fishing nets.
Using fishing nets to tuck among the branches is a fun way to add texture to your tree.
Adding a colorful oar to your tree is easy when you angle it, so only the top and bottom peek out.
8) Driftwood & Rope.
Adding pieces of driftwood and rope to the base adds time-worn character to your display.
