Steampunk Christmas Tree Ornaments
A Christmas tree is the most important Christmas decoration, and it should be decorated properly to make a statement in your space. Steampunk ornaments are really special, making them can be a bit difficult but still there are lots of tutorials to try. Metal ornaments with gears, grommets and other stuff are a chic idea for a steampunk Christmas, though they are a bit too heavy. You can substitute them with leather and felt ornaments showing gears, with chains, vintage keys, gears and other stuff you like – this way the ornaments won’t be too heavy. If you don’ feel like making such difficult items, grab usual baubles and paint some gears right on them using glitter or go to the shop and buy ready steampunk ornaments.
Steampunk Christmas Tree Toppers
A Christmas tree topper is a must for every tree, especially a steampunk one. keep it in the same style and you’ll love the whole tree: it may be a top hat with vintage pocket watches, a felt gear snowflake tree topper made by you or maybe a crazy metal star toppers with all kinds of steampunk detailing to your taste.
Steampunk Christmas Wreaths
Wreaths are a must for front doors, for staircase and window decor, so make a cool steampunk wreath for your unusual Christmas! A wreath covered with metal or felt gears, with various vintage keys, grommets, nails, top hats and even little robots. Whatever base you choose, the decor should keep the style you’ve chosen and catch an eye with lots of details.
Other Decor Ideas
Make all the decor in steampunk style! If you want some stockings, hang large tweed ones (as if for men elves) and decorate them with pocket watches or gears – these aren’t your usual faux fur or knit stockings, these are really steampunk ones! Create Christmas tree art pieces of various metal details and gears to add a tree o every space, and spoil yourself with a unique steampunk Christmas tree made of top hats, clocks and stuff like that.
