When Clea shared a time-lapse of her and her family assembling the multi-colored masterpiece on Instagram, she said that the tree is in the kids' playroom of her home. 

'Which means I will be hanging out in the playroom a lot over the next two months!' she writes.

The queens of organization have created similar trees in the past, but, this year, they opted for a white artificial tree as the backdrop to the rainbow creation. Our roundup of the best artificial Christmas trees includes a lovely white option if you're planning a technicolor tree.

The specific lights on the tree are special LED lights from a brand called Twinkly. In her Instagram stories Clea demonstrates how she has been able to customize each strand of lights to be the perfect color via the Twinkly app.
