As soon as I saw Shay Mitchell's Christmas decorations I knew I had to track down some glam ornaments to recreate her tree. 

The Pretty Little Liars star posted a preview of her Christmas tree on TikTok, decorated by a celeb-fave professional decorator. The stunning tree is the display of my dreams, plus she shows off a handy ornament organizer. 

I was fresh out of Christmas decorating ideas until Shay's tree came across my FYP. See how to recreate the look on your fresh or faux Christmas tree at home.

If you're looking for Christmas tree decorating ideas, try a celeb-inspired idea this year to nail a super glam look. Shay Mitchell posted a sneak peek of her luxurious tree being set up by professional decorator Jeanna Crawford, aka @jeannaloveschristmas

In the video, Crawford has a handy ornament storage bag nearby while decorating, like this Christmas accessories storage bag available on Amazon. A helpful tip for keeping all your decorations on hand while you're deep in the decorating process.

Crawford is certainly a celeb favorite as she also worked on influencer, Desi Perkin's Christmas decorations, too. The stunning traditional Christmas decor embraces classic colors and finishes while feeling really sophisticated and elegant.

Speaking of influencers, Jackie Aina's Christmas decorations have a similar luxury vibe to fit the festive mood.

How to recreate Shay Mitchell's Christmas decorations

I'm loving Shay's over-the-top tree and while it may seem like a big investment, you can still pull it off in a tiny room. After fitting a Christmas tree in a small space, you'll want to look for red, gold, and copper ornaments and decorations in metallic finishes. 

"You can easily take a standard Christmas tree to the next level by really embracing a maximalist style," says Real Homes content director, Lucy Searle. "You can recreate Shay's look with oversized ornaments that will really stand out."

Shay also completed her tree with velvet ribbons, oversized lantern ornaments, and plenty of warm string lights. 

If you're working with a faux option, it might be worth cleaning your artificial Christmas tree before starting to remove any dust or debris that has been collected over the years.

Best buys to recreate the look

I shopped around for the best items to recreate Shay Mitchell's Christmas decorations. The good news is there are plenty of options to choose from with everything from Walmart Christmas decor to more upscale finds.

Prices were correct at the time of publishing.

Lately, I'm really into celeb-inspired decorating ideas, like Candice King's quirky Christmas tree decorations. Celebrity and influencer decor is a great source of inspiration because you'll find an assortment of styles and preferences to look through. 

But before you throw up your tree and call it a day, make sure you're not making one of these small-space Christmas decorating mistakes like failing to test your Christmas lights or starting without a plan.
