What is Ombré?

Ombré is a French word meaning “shaded.”

But for artistic purposes, ombré is basically the blending of one color hue to another — usually from light to dark.

Which is exactly what this pretty Christmas tree does!

Elements of an Ombré Christmas Tree

To create an ombré look on your Christmas tree, the easiest method is to keep it simple but very true to color.

I organized our tree into five distinct sections, each with a darker shade as they progressed toward the bottom of the tree.

If you have a larger or taller tree, you may want to create more sections.

Once you know how many sections you have, you know you’ll need a different shade or color for each section.

So for our five sections, the shades I used were white, pale blue, sky blue, teal, and deep aqua.

Supplies You’ll Need

This tree only has three main types of decorations: ribbon, decorative picks, and glass ball ornaments.

You can absolutely mix in other items by grouping them together in like colors and working your way down the tree in sections!

Each different section contains items within its color palette — for instance, the top section has white balls, white ribbon, and white or silver picks. While the lowest section has deep teal balls, dark blue ribbon, and dark blue sparkly decorative picks.

The glass balls were a DIY project which you can find here. I love the finished look of these!

They turned out to be very fun, modern, and colorful — and I’m just totally into it.
