Traditional holiday symbols get a glossy makeover with simple shapes and loads of bright red and white.
BASE A medium-size woven basket (etuhome .com) provides a tidier footing than a tree skirt.
ORNAMENTS Dress branches with large red Gobstopper-like globes mixed with favorite holiday images. For an extra-sweet touch, suspend candy canes from the frosted boughs.
GARLAND First hang the strands of lights, and then dangle a garland made from felt balls along the branches.
TOPPER Try a homespun take on stars with a large matte wooden version.
DETAILS Stick to solid wrapping papers except for one standout polkadot pattern.
