The material of Christmas balls plays an important role.

The classic material for Christmas baubles is glass. Christmas balls made of glass create a wintry and nice atmosphere and by reflecting lights they create atmospheric lighting effects. The disadvantage is that if a glass ball falls down, it can break very easily.

If you have small children and need to ensure their safety, there are other alternatives such as plastic Christmas balls.

Plastic Christmas baubles cannot break. In addition, these are usually painted and also create a nice Christmas atmosphere. The downside to this is that they are not shiny and may not create as interesting an atmosphere.


You can find very small Christmas baubles but also balls in XXXL.

What you should buy always depends on what you want the bauble for and also how big your Christmas tree is.

In addition, balls in XXXL are more suitable for the garden.

It would be ideal to have different sizes of baubles so that it doesn't look monotonous. Having a variety of sizes helps with decorating and the final look of the Christmas tree or garden.


As with the size of the Christmas baubles, it is also ideal to have several different surface types. There are glossy surfaces, matt, painted etc.

Again, if you only use one type of surface, it will look monotonous. A variety of surface types creates a nice and more interesting atmosphere than if you only use one surface type for your Christmas baubles.


The colour of Christmas baubles depends only on personal taste.

The most common colour found in Christmas trees is red. But that doesn't mean you should necessarily only buy red Christmas baubles.... (Image by Sittichoke /

You can choose all kinds of colours. A colourful result will look very festive and create a nice Christmas aura.

But as I said, it all depends on personal taste. So you should not hold back when choosing colours for your Christmas baubles. It's up to you.
