Chinoiserie Chic Christmas - The Christmas Tree


This series will include lots of examples of Chinoiserie Christmas trees. Here, from Martha Stewart Living, is a wonderful alternative to a traditional tree. Take an artificial bonsai, easily found online in all different shapes and sizes starting at around $40. Spray paint it with gold paint and dust it with gold glitter. Decorate with Chinoiserie ornaments of your choice - here they used lanterns and birds.
