Fun ornaments to add to your tree this year -- an inspiration board

It’s always fun to add a few unusual Christmas ornaments to your tree every year, whether they’re sentimental, quirky or traditional. They can express your personality, honor your favorite sports team, or just create a smile. Here are a few of the more quirky or distinctive Christmas ornaments from the virtual aisles of The Home Depot.

From top to bottom:

Partial to the traditional red and green color palette? These glittered large shatterproof ornaments in red and green are a no-brainer if you’re looking to add to your ornament collection.

Or perhaps you gravitate toward Christmas decorations in an untraditional color combination? These multi-colored beaded, striped ornaments will satisfy your rainbow fix!

Natural elements are ever-present when it comes to decorating for Christmas, and acorns (like this acorn ornament from Martha Stewart Living’s Winterberry collection) can have such a festive feel, especially when dusted with glitter and tucked neatly into the bows of your Fraser Fir.

Remember, Christmas ornaments make fantastic gifts! Perhaps you know a recent graduate or football fanatic whose eyes would light up at the sight of a collegiate tree ornament, like the University of Alabama Christmas ornament we see above.

New innovations are always fun to test out around the holidays. This high-tech ornament (Mr. Maestro Mouse) can turn your Christmas tree into a light show that dances to music! Definitely a fun toy for the kids.

Scentsicles are a new must-have for our holiday happenings — give your live tree an extra whiff of fir smell. Or trick your guests into thinking your artificial tree is real with a Douglas Fir scent.

Whether or not you have a sweet tooth, the red-and-white color palette of peppermints is a natural addition to your tree. This set of three red and white striped candies is so charming!

Adorn your Christmas tree with a foursome of lip-smacking ice cream cones, and sugar plums will be dancing in your head all season long.

These glass rainbow drop ornaments will create a kaleidoscope of color on your tree.

A snowy forest scene in turquoise and white makes an elegant addition to any tree.

For the television buff, or lover of retro-decor, we adore a novelty Christmas ornament like this “I Love Lucy” glass blown tree ornament.
