Décorations“, “Décorations de Noël” are the words we use about christmas tree ornament.

and as Joubarc stated in his commentary:

[...] it's not limited to Christmas either. Note the singular is décoration; ornement also exists but isn't used much nowadays and mostly for immobile stuff (statues in a park, for example).
