Complement your black Christmas tree ornaments with matching wall and tabletop décor. These are options that can make a statement no matter where you place them.

  • Christmas wall ornament decals - These large (46"H x 43" W) wall decals include six round ornaments.

Put them behind a couch or in the entryway to make decorating easy.
  • Swirl drop - This 8-inch glitter, swirl drop black and white swirl ornament would be ideal dangling from an ornament holder on a mantle. The cost for this large ornament is about $19.
