    We've been spray painting, my 'color' is teal for this season and if it's not tied down (some that have been) it's probably been spray painted.

  2. Soto says:

    Eclectic way. Vintage – Modern – Rustic look. There are ornaments from my childhood, my parents childhood and brand new ornaments chosen by my son.
    In that way we have OOAK family Christmas tree.

  3. Lori says:

    Our tree is a mix of old and new — ornaments from my husband's childhood as well as annual ornaments that we've been collecting since we started dating.

  4. Lori says:

    We decorate the tree at my parents' house (where I spend Christmas) with ornaments collected over multiple lifetimes, including a Santa my grandfather made when my dad was just a kid.

  5. Judy says:

    The grandkids decorate my tree using handmade and family collectable ornaments, gathered through the years.

  6. Debbie says:

    With the same ornaments since 1985.

  7. Rachel says:

    When we got married, we bought "matchy" ornaments, thinking a catalog tree would be best, but now I'm looking forward to the day when our tree will be covered with handcrafted ornaments made by us and our children.

  8. lindseykovener says:

    We add white lights, red, green, and gold ornaments, a few pinecones, and a burlap tree skirt.

  9. Val says:

    With ornaments made by my children when they were children…they are adults now…some with children of their own….wonderful memories!

  10. Susan says:

    Mostly ornaments made by our kids through the years, and many ornaments that my sister made for us after we lost everything in a hurricane, but this year I will have to pick through and only hang the non-breakable ones because we have two new kittens ;)
