The New Christmas Tree inspires readers to turn a holiday standby into a stunning design statement—whether they're looking to add something new to their traditional Christmas decor or create a unique holiday tradition all their own. A closer look at each one-of-a-kind tree reveals the real heart of these designs—beautifully handcrafted ornaments, garlands, and more, from felted bumblebees to delicate paper flowers. Some use traditional Christmas materials in novel ways, while others employ flea-market finds, household objects—even foodstuffs!—to create something entirely unexpected. Each chapter takes readers through the process of constructing a well-balanced tree that is rich in texture and dimension from topper to tree stand—selecting the appropriate lights, making and assembling the decorations, and adding the finishing touches that pull the look together. Also included are information on the fundamentals of tree selection, installation, and design; basic crafting techniques; sources for products, tools, and equipment; and care guidelines.
