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

Creating a Cozy Life Group

Since you found this post on creating a Nautical Christmas Tree, I’m guessing you like all things cozy living. I created a Facebook group called Creating a Cozy Life with over 65,000 like-minded souls.

It’s a group where we share recipes, pictures of things that leave you in awe, and ideas on how to make your life just a little bit more snug.  Join here to be part of the virtual cozy cabin.

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.

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.

Adding pieces of driftwood and rope to the base adds time-worn character to your display.
