Icicles vs. Baubles: The Best Ornaments for Your Type of Christmas Tree
Although icicles and baubles can be combined when decorating a Christmas tree, each ornament is appropriate for certain types of trees for various reasons.
Baubles come in many different sizes and can have varied effects, depending on how you use them and take advantage of multiple values of a hue. There are also elongated baubles; they adorn your tree much in the same way an icicle ornament does.
Upside Down Tree
Icicles allow for a more organized look in an upside down Christmas tree because of their vertical direction. Tapering downward, these ornaments also direct the eyes to the focal point, which in this case is a majestic white peacock. With the various ornaments, the icicles and baubles create interest because they dangle and aren’t so close to the foliage. That allows a signature piece that you love to be admired uninterrupted, allowing the mixture of shapes to enrich this unique tree.
In tabletop trees, icicles make for an eye-catching detail. Likewise, they create dimension that lengthens the appearance of a small tree.
The symmetry of the décor and elegance of the ornaments are inspiring. There is right proportion in every way – from the tree to the varied lengths of the icicles and conical ornaments. Notice that different colors were used, yet the tree still looks timeless.
Pre-Lit Christmas Tree
Sparkly crystal icicles make wonderful ornaments for pre-lit Christmas trees. Acting as prism, the crystal ornaments refract the glow coming from the Christmas lights, creating a gorgeous array of colors. They can be used in a monochromatic way with silver or white ornaments, or both. Likewise, they look elegant with ornaments of varied colors. In either case, they add depth, richness, as well as stunning glimmer.
Large gold metallic baubles bring the sparkle of the season on a tree adorned with natural elements. Their elegant sheen and spherical shape brighten the tree in a simple way while providing a nice contrast to the different textures of the pine cones, feathers, poinsettias, and snowflakes. And because they are the only ones that reflect the lighting, they serve as a focal point to rest your eyes before continuing to peruse the other interesting ornaments.
Clear and frosted glass baubles add visual interest to a skinny tree without being overpowering. The glass balls in this tree feature different textures that create volume and depth, but still keep the décor sleek and minimalist. Paired with a frosty white tree, their beautiful crystal look makes for an elegant winter theme. The baubles actually widen and give a sense of breadth, so that even in the narrowness of the tree, it has all the aura of celebration as a larger tree.
Decorate with levels of color to bring a new look and add charm and visual interest to a full tree. Here, vibrant baubles add drama to the already magnificent foliage. Different sizes of Christmas balls in two colors successfully counter each other while uniting with the red and blue theme of the gift wrap. The varying sizes of the baubles create depth and dimension, inviting you to discover all that is on the décor
Color-coordinated baubles improve the structure and enhance the aesthetic appeal of a DIY tree. Dressed with the right ornaments, a bunch of white twigs converts to a Christmas tree that looks lovely in just about any small spot of the house. Atypical in essence, these can be left up year round, and changed for different seasons. The plaid and wreath baubles, as well as the frosted and clear glass in this non-conventional tree bring Christmas season to the forefront.
Icicles and baubles add a sprinkle of style and sparkle to your Christmas celebrations. May this post serve as your inspiration in decorating your Christmas tree this holiday season.by
