Black, White And Gold Christmas Tree

This black, white and gold Christmas tree is decorated with feather boas, ribbons, and lots of black, white and gold ornaments. An elegant and glamorous way to deck the halls for the holiday.

A stunning Christmas tree decorated with elegant gold, black and white ornaments.

I love decorating with black and white.

So it was only a matter of time until I decided to do a black and white theme for Christmas.

But I like this color combination so much that I got a little carried away. And decorated 5 trees.

This black, white and gold Christmas tree was one of them. (You can find links to the rest of them at the bottom of the page if you’re interested).

In this case, I used feather boas, ribbons and lots of black, white and gold ornaments to decorate a black Christmas tree.

The black and white is very dramatic. And the gold adds some warmth that keeps it from feeling too cold.

I think this one might be my favorite of them all!

How to decorate a black, white and gold Christmas tree

Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to put the tree together.

1 | Wrap feather boas

One of my favorite ways to add interest to any Christmas tree is to add feather boas.

They add texture and a snow-like look to the branches.

For this tree, I used black and white boas to go with the color scheme.

2 | Put ribbon down the tree

Since the boas are going around the tree, I decided to add the ribbon vertically.

To create this ribbon, I stapled 2½” music not ribbon onto 4″ black velvet ribbon.

Then weave the ribbon in and out of the tree going down the length of it.

If the ribbon won’t stay where you want it and you are using an artificial tree, you can wrap a branch around it to keep it in place.

3 | Drape white garland

Then I added a white faux pearl garland to contrast with the black Christmas tree.

The style adds to the elegance of the tree theme.

4 | Hang large black, white and gold ornaments

Now it’s time to start adding ornaments.

I always start with the larger, 4-inch balls.

For this tree, I used black and white striped balls, as well as plain black, white and gold ornaments.

6 | Add long ornaments

Then I added long ornaments in black and white and gold.

These add another vertical element to the tree.

7 | Put up special ornaments

Next, I hung up some gold chandelier, gold drop and black pin wheel ornaments.

These kinds of ornaments add different lines to the tree that create some extra interest.

8 | Hang small ornaments

To fill in any gaps, add some small black, white and gold ornaments.

Since I like a full tree, I use a lot of them. But you can vary how many you put on depending on what you like.

9 | Add tassels

The last type of ornament are some white tassels.

They are like earrings. The final finishing accessory.

10 | Put up the tree topper

For the tree topper, I made a large bow from the same ribbon that I had used on the tree.

I left the tails about 2 feet long. Then I removed the staples from them and spread them out around the tree.

Then I added some gold picks at the back to make the topper stand out.

11 | Lay down the tree skirt

The final step is to add the tree skirt.

I used a black velvet one that has a wide white edge. It’s an elegant way to finish the tree.

In retrospect, it would be easier to put the tree skirt down first because then you don’t have to work around the ornaments.

To continue the theme, I wrapped the presents under the tree in black, white and gold paper and ribbon.

With the lights turned on, the gold reflects the light which makes the rest of the tree glow.

I love how it looks in my living room!
