10 easy DIY ideas for mini Christmas trees

Guys, I found some great ideas for miniature Christmas trees that you can make yourself using ordinary supplies that you probably already have laying around the house. The only thing you need is a little bit of free time and patience. They will make for some great Holiday decorations and will cheer you up for sure!

I used to make a lot of Christmas decorations when I was little, I loved it and it was something I expected all year long. I’m really hoping to get that feeling back by attempting to make some of these:

The cupcake liners Christmas tree
You’ll need: a wide short glass (it would be cool to fill it with orange peel), white cupcake liners, silver glitter, a small decoration for the top.
A colorful, glittery version (right side)! So cute!!!
The green yarn Christmas tree
You’ll need: a cardboard cone, thick green yarn, little yarn colorful globes, cardboard star for the top.
The feathers Christmas tree
You’ll need: a cardboard cone, white feathers (you can make it any color you wish if you have colorful feathers), glue.
 Colorful fabric and paper Christmas tree
You’ll need: a cardboard cone, colorful fabric and paper, ribbon, buttons, a small decoration for the top, scraps of lace, velvet and glue.
 The paper Christmas tree
You’ll need: a glass candle holder or a long metal stick, paper, cardboard stars
 The red fabric flowers Christmas tree
You’ll need: a cardboard cone, red fabric, scissors, white beads or gold beads, thread, glue, big gold star for the top.
 Tall serving rack Christmas three
You’ll need: a three (or more) tier serving rack OR a three tier cupcake stand, different cute objects you have around in white, red and green to decorate the rack, you can always fill the rack with colorful food.
 The buttons Christmas tree
You’ll need: a cardboard background (you can pin it up on the wall), lots of buttons of different colors, shapes and sizes, glue, little beads, colorful paper to cut out the small present boxes and the star on the top of the tree, thread
The minimalist branches Christmas tree
You’ll need: a tall white vase, tree branches, Christmas globes (they look really elegant in white), a big green, fabric bow, thin rope to decorate the upper part of the vase.
The cupcakes and candy Christmas tree
You’ll need: pretty little cupcakes and candies that you arrange in a pyramid shape, orange slices.
Photos: 1, 2, 3.

How to make a cardboard cone you ask? Just roll a flexible piece of rectangular carboard, cut the base evenly and glue it.

Alice in vintageland said...

Lucica - Mina (Faboulista) este ok, nu i s-a intamplat nimic, pur si simplu a decis sa renunte la blog pentru moment asa ca si-a inchis si acel cont pe facebook (de aceea nu a mai postat nimic). Don't worry she's good!:)
