5 Disney-Themed Christmas Tree Ideas

While Disney’s Storybook Advent calendars are a great way to count down to December 25, there’s nothing like waking up on Christmas morning to a tree that’s merry, bright and full of your favorite Disney buddies. Here are some of our favorites to get you started on your very own Disney-themed Christmas tree.

1. Under the Sea Tree

Let’s start off with a classic, because Disney’s The Little Mermaid makes for a dazzling holiday tree. Beach vibes in December? Yes, please. This tree from Instagram user @brenandybsb_1d is decked out with ornaments of Ariel and her friends, with bonus points for the Disney hat on the top!

2. Frozen Christmas Tree

Frozen is the perfect Disney movie for the holidays—and it makes for a beautiful tree, too! In the Tiktok below, @snugzmeow shows us step-by-step how to decorate a Frozen-themed Christmas tree. Even if you don’t have a ton of Frozen ornaments, you can’t go wrong with blue ribbon and silver decorations.

3. 101 Dalmatians

Nothing cruel about this 101 Dalmatians-themed Christmas tree, even if Cruella De Vil is replacing the star on top. Tiktok user @ryn_brannock stuck with the red and white color palette used in the movie, and it works oh-so-well for the holidays. Cute ornaments of our favorite pups decorate the branches, but with a retro twist—they’re the McDonald’s toys from the 90s!

4. Cinderella’s Gown

This one is for our alternative tree lovers. If you thought about setting up a pink Christmas tree this year, consider this replica of Cinderella’s dress to decorate your living room. We can’t get over this creative display from @princessamanda97, which features a Disney spin on the traditional Christmas tree. Instead of a tree trunk, Amanda secured pine branches to the skirt of a sewing mannequin and decorated it with adorable mice, spools of thread and glittery heel ornaments.

5. The Happiest Tree on Earth

Can’t decide on just one of your favorite Disney stories? No one is stopping you from including bits and pieces from all of them! Disneyland is known as “the happiest place on earth,” and your Christmas tree can channel the same energy. Take notes from Tiktok user @followmetothecastle, because we love Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat topping the tree!
