Decorating a Christmas Tree is such a fun way to kick off the holiday season. The first tree I put up this year is a Festive Santa Tree in our breakfast nook. I’ve wanted a slim tree for this space for a while and was happy to have found one that’s just the right size for the space.
The tree is filled with Santa ornaments that I’ve collected over the years. I love having them all on their own tree this year.

For as long as I’ve had my own Christmas tree, I’ve always collected Santa ornaments for it. I haven’t had a tree dedicated to just those ornaments until now and I love it.
Santa Ornament Christmas Tree
I needed a tree that wasn’t too large for the space I had in mind in our breakfast nook, just off of the kitchen. I found a six foot flocked slim tree that is perfect for the space while I was browsing Christmas decorations at Walmart for only $30. I assumed it would look pretty sparse, but decided for that low price, I could take a chance.
It only took a few minutes to set it up and I was pleasantly surprised by how it looked. It wasn’t nearly as sparse as I thought it would be.
I picked up some white tinsel garland to use as filler for the tree. I cut the garland into small pieces, about 5″ long each.
After cutting the tinsel, I rolled each small piece into balls and filled in gaps on the tree.
The tree is unlit, so I added several strings of white lights. It was starting to look pretty good for a $30 tree!
This fun Ho, Ho, Ho ribbon with Santa’s belt goes perfectly with a Santa themed tree. It’s wired, so it’s easy to manipulate when placing it on the tree.
Another great find this year was this Santa Tree Topper that I found at Target. I had planned on placing a simple Santa hat on top, but when I spotted this, I knew it would be a fun addition to the tree.
After adding the tinsel filler, wired ribbon and the topper, I was getting excited over how well this was turning out. As I was adding the Santa ornaments, I realized that I had more than enough to fill any gaps that might still be showing.
One of the things I love most about tree decorating is pulling out the ornaments and taking a minute to remember where I got them. Some of them hold special meaning, some are from trips, some were gifted to me, and some of them are simple dollar store ornaments that I think are fun.
I’m not going to go through this ornament by ornament, but I thought adding some collage photos of the assortment of Santa ornaments on the tree would be fun.
Gnome ornaments are everywhere this year. I bought a few new ones to go on the tree.
It’s always fun to notice how differently Santa can look from one ornament to the next.
These are some of my oldest Santa ornaments. Each one has meaning and I can recall when I first added each one to a tree.
More of my oldest ornaments, including one made from an okra pod that a student gave me sometime in the early 90s. It’s amazing that it’s held up well this long!
Whenever we visit a new place, I love finding ornaments from the city. I especially love when I can find ones that are Santa.
More fun ornaments like the Paint Brush Santa Ornament I made this year fill the tree. We have several airplane ornaments with Santa as the pilot. My husband is an aerospace engineer, so the planes are a nod to him and his love of airplanes.
One of the first ornaments I bought when we moved to Charleston in 2004 was this sand dollar Palmetto Moon ornament with a sleeping Santa.
I couldn’t be happier with my Santa Christmas Tree. It fits the space well and adds a festive touch to the breakfast nook. I added a couple of my Santa figurines nearby. I plan on having a Santa themed table setting for the breakfast table that I’ll be sharing soon.
