For a contemporary home full of solid colors, clean lines and bright light, a Christmas tree decorated in a modern black and white aesthetic will fit in perfectly. The contrasting colors look great as solid ornaments, patterned ornaments and patterned ribbons. Simply purchase all solid black and all solid white ornaments. Add your own personality with a paint pen and some fun ribbon.
Pick up a few black paint pens at your local craft store. Draw geometric designs onto solid white ornaments. Try polka dots, stripes and even hearts. This is a great project to get the kids involved too. They’ll love to see their creations hang on the tree. Black and white ribbon is an easy way to add some personality and texture to the tree. Instead of wrapping it our the tree in a traditional manner, cut small sections of the ribbon and drape it over single branches here and there.
