It’s been nearly 50 years since Marilyn Monroe died and yet her candle still hasn’t burned out as she’s kept alive in millions of hearts around the world and one way that we keep her alive is by decorating our Christmas trees with her image every year.
Marilyn Monroe Christmas ornaments just keep getting more and more popular as people embrace the ideas of having a themed Christmas tree. What more beautiful theme could you have on your Christmas tree than Marilyn?
You can include Marilyn Monroe on a celebrity Christmas tree with other celebs or you can decorate your whole Christmas tree around the sex symbol herself.
Another great way of incorporating some Marilyn Monroe ornaments on your Christmas tree is by having a classic Hollywood Christmas tree. Style your tree in black and white for glamor – adding a few film camera oranments and clapper board ornaments and them dot a few Marilyn Monroe ornametns around the tree to add a touch of color……..and of course more glam!
Even the Hollywood sign is available as an ornament –
But let’s just look at decking our whole tree with Marilyn ornaments for now…..
Vintage Marilyn Monroe Christmas Ornaments
Marilyn Monroe started her career as a pin-up girl and model although she never actually won a beauty contest in real life……In one of her early films she did play a lady who had won two beauty contests.
These Christmas ornaments celebrates Marilyn Monroe’s early look before she gained worldwide sex symbol status.
First we have a Hallmark collector’s series which shows Marilyn in a bathing costume – a very vintage Marilyn look.
This next ornament is from Carlton Cards and moves on from the bathing costumes which first got her noticed as a pin up girl for GIs and gives a nod to her acting career with her provocatively perched on a directors chair.
It’s the little touches on this ornament that makes it a collector’s ornament. The painted toe nails are a nice touch, but what you can’t see in this picture is the back of the director’s chair. On this ornament the back of the chair has Marilyn’s signature scrawled across it in gold – just in case you didn’t know who it was!

There really is something special about Marilyn Monroe – it’s that little something that you can’t put your finger on, but you know it when you see it – star quality! There has to be a reason why decades after her death her image can still make you catch your breath …… for me it’s something about her smile – forget the Mona Lisa, when I see an image of Marilyn with her playful smile it just makes me want to smile too.
Why not add a touch of ‘Marilyn Magic’ to your holidays with some of these gorgeous ornaments…..
