Oriental Themed Christmas Decorations?

I am hoping that some of you can help me with ideas on making Christmas Tree ornaments to be hung on a tree in my Oriental themed living room. My knickknacks, wall pictures, rug, etc. are oriental style. I wanted my tree to fit in with that theme but can't find ideas or patterns for ornaments. Can anyone help me with ideas/patterns? Thanks.

Thissie,
How about origami? You could do cranes, boxes, stars out of pretty oriental papers, or even just festive colors like red and gold.

You could find oriental characters you like, print them out and mount them on card stock, then edge them with gold paint marker or glue on gold cording. If you turn them on an angle - kind of like the diamond shaped prints you might see in an asian restaurant that would be interesting.

Make tiny little fans out of oriental papers or fabrics.

Cover styrofoam balls with oriental fabrics and hang those.

Post pictures when you get it all done - sounds like it could be a really pretty themed tree!

Im not sure how far you may have to travel, but you would find some very pretty things in your closest Vietnamese or Tai grocery store. Those stores carry lots of weird foods and all kinds of housewares and decor.

The things arent expensive as to an asian person thats just a regular store.

I wonder if you could find ideas from an internet search under something like Christmas in Japan or Christmas in China.

Good luck

Those little paper umbrellas for cocktails look really nice placed over the tree lights. I twist tied them to the wire.

I also have an Oriental decorated house and Christmas Tree.
Try Origami! You can make all kinds of shapes and be 100% oriental!

You might like to incorporate an idea I used when I did an Oriental theme for Christmas one year. I went to Chinatown and bought Chinese newspapers (black and white) and used them for wrapping gifts then I used a plain colored red, blue or green ribbon and bows.

They looked stunning and so interesting with the Chinese characters.

I apologize if this post shows up twice.

You may want to incorporate an idea I used when I did an Oriental theme Christmas. I went to Chinatown and purchased a bunch of Chinese newspapers and used them to wrap my gifts. Then I used a plain red, green or blue ribbon and bows on each. They looked stunning and very interesting with the Chinese characters. Also much cheaper than buying Xmas wrapping paper.
