Are you tired of decorating the same old tree every year? Or maybe you have kids, pets or carpets that don’t mix well with all of those bristly needles. The good news is that you can still decorate for the holidays with these DIY Christmas tree ideas.
Instead of struggling with an unwieldy tree that won’t fit through the front door, you can craft a tree that’s the perfect size for your living space. Instead of letting someone else decide the color, shape, texture and fragrance of your tree, you’ll get to build your own from the ground up.
Some of these crafts are simple things made from paper and glitter. You could use them as centerpieces or mantle pieces, or you could hand them out as party favors at your office’s annual shindig. You could even rope the kids into an afternoon of tree-making as a holiday bonding experience.
Other trees on this list might take time and tools. When you’re finished, however, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind creation that you can display along with your stockings and sugar plums. They’ll speak to both your personal creativity and your holiday spirit.
