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.
