How to decorate a black white and silver christmas tree

Here are all the steps you need to do to recreate the tree.

Add ribbon

Start by wrapping the ribbon around the tree.

To make it look more natural, wind it in and out of the branches.

And try not to have the ribbon going straight across.

To make the ribbon, I layered two of them. And stapled them together about every 6 inches to keep them from separating.

The one at the back is a 4-inch wide black and white striped ribbon.

The one at the front is a 2.5-inch wide black velvet one that says Merry Christmas in silver.

Hang ball ornaments

Then add a bunch of large black, white and silver ball ornaments.

I like my trees to look full so I add a lot of them. But you can put on fewer if that’s not your style.

Add special ornaments

I always like to add some ornaments that aren’t balls.

The different shapes and textures add interest to the tree.

In this case, I added black and white mini-wreaths and some silver wire ornaments.

Hang finial ornaments

Next hang the long ornaments.

These add a vertical element to the tree that directs your eye up and down the tree.

Add bows and tassels

Now we’ll add some bows and tassels.

In this case, the bows are actually wire ornaments, along with some black tassels.

Put up black poinsettias

Velvet poinsettias help to soften the look of the tree.

Tuck some of them in behind the ornaments and leave some in front.

Put up the tree topper

Tree topper made with ribbons and bows in black, white and silver.

For the tree topper, I made a large bow out of the same ribbon as is on the tree.

I cut the tails off at about 2 feet.

And removed the staples in those tails, so that there are 4 ribbons trailing down the tree.

To give the top of the tree some more definition, add some white picks behind the bow.

Finish with a tree skirt

For the tree skirt, I used a black and white pin stripe with a black velvet edge.

It’s the perfect complement to the tree decor.

The finished tree

The finished tree goes perfectly with the rest of the black and white Christmas decor in the room.

Wrapping the presents in coordinating paper makes the whole thing look cohesive.

If you have any ribbon left over from decorating the tree, you can use it on your presents to continue the theme.
