Why settle for a green Christmas tree, when you can have a setup that embraces the entire rainbow? With the rise of aluminum foliage in the '60s came an innovative color wheel. This plastic circle featured four shades — red, green, blue, and a yellowish amber — to give your Christmas tree some extra pizzazz. When positioned at the right angle, the colors would make the tree's silver branches look like a technicolored dream. While this fad was eventually replaced by multi-colored twinkle lights, it feels delightfully retro.
