Because nothing says "Merry Christmas" better than those red-and-white stripes!
Red and white just says "Merry Christmas!" in a big way. And while you've already decorated your door with a DIY wreath idea, created some fun winter crafts with the kids (maybe even candy cane reindeer!), and picked out the secret Santa gifts for everyone on your list, now it's time to dress your tree in red and white splendor. Candy cane trees are the perfect cheery addition to celebrate the season. The theme can be interpreted a lot of different ways. You can decorate with red and white ornaments only, add red ornaments to a white flocked tree for a dash of drama (need to know how to flock a Christmas tree? We've got you covered), or actually make tiny trees out of candy canes and other inexpensive craft items such as buttons. It's your tree! Decorate it your way. The great thing is red and white can look traditional, country chic, or lend a more modern edginess, depending on how you style it. Read on to get some great ideas for how to make a candy cane tree stand out in your seasonal decor. This year, make it all about the red and white!
