Pinspiration Monday: 3 DIY Christmas Trees

Hi friends, happy Monday!

So I’m sitting here at my computer, a hot mug of coffee in my hand.  I’m looking out the window and I see bare trees, cold skies, and what I swear look like snow-filled grey clouds.  It is winter coat season here, and I can’t help but think about fun Christmas craft ideas to warm me up!

So here are three ways you can make a beautiful Christmas tree decoration for your home this coming holiday season:

The first are these beautiful fabric-wrapped cones.  Simply make a cone shape out of poster board (full instructions are on the site, just click the picture to take you there!) and then wrap your cone with fabric (I love that burlap!) and decorate with string, charms, anything at all!  These are inexpensive and gorgeous!

Next is this felt shingle style tree.  The base is floral foam in a cone shape (the green stuff you can get at Michaels or any craft store).  The shingles are simple circles cut out of felt and pinned to the cone.  Simple, cute, and they can be any colour you need to fit your holiday colours!

This last tree is the exact same method as the felt-shingles, but instead of felt circles, satin rosettes are used for a warmer, romantic feel.  These elegant trees are gorgeous and while making all the rosettes are a little more time consuming (although they are pretty simple, click for full instructions on the site), they give the tree so much more sophistication.

So that’s it for now, guys.  I hope this post gives you some inspiration and makes you excited for the coming holiday season. Talk to you soon!

Till next time, keep creating!
