New Trend Sees People Decorating Their Christmas Tree With Sunflowers

Each year, I look forward to decorating the Christmas tree with my family. But it seems that the days of traditional lights and ornaments are gone. From black to upside down to unicorn Christmas trees are seriously making us consider how we decorate this year.

A new trend is slowly making waves online…The Sunflower Tree! We took a step back when we first saw these trees cause it doesn’t necessarily scream “winter”. But now we are totally digging the idea.

What I didn’t know is that the sunflower blooms in the fall, so it makes total sense people are putting the flowers up on their trees.

It all started last year when Twitter user @liyahbobeah posted a picture of her creation online. The photo went insanely viral and we can see why – its freakin’ adorable!

To make sure the sunflowers stayed on the tree, she didn’t cut the long stems and inserted them into the tree.
