Rustic & Simple DIY Christmas Trees

Rustic DIY Christmas Trees

We’re super excited to announce our latest contributor, designer & rockstar stylist Ginny Branch Stelling. Welcome to the team, Ginny!

I’m a huge sucker for a Scandinavian twist on the holidays! I love their simple approach that often incorporates natural elements. These ideas are perfect for folks short on time, funds, and patience. I find I’d rather spend the holidays cozying up to a mug of hot chocolate than tackling a challenging craft project! Here are a few ways to make your home merrier without breaking the bank(or your sanity).

DIY Chalkboard Christmas Tree

I love this little chalkboard Christmas tree. I have a few of these lying around. And think it would be adorable to make a little gallery wall of trees. A chalkboard forest! Here is a source for handheld slates. (via canadian house & home)

DIY Birch Christmas Tree Ornaments

How clever are these birch tree ornaments? All you need is some birch paper, some scissors, and perhaps a Christmas cookie cutter to use as a stencil. (via noralill)

DIY Christmas Tree Silhouette

Outline a classic Christmas tree silhouette like this one on a blank wall in your home with washi tape or even humble masking tape. String up a garland atop and insta-festivity! (via vosgesparis)

Cupcake Liner Christmas Tree

Dig into your kitchen drawers and dust off those cupcake liners. Add a little low-tack double stick tape to the backs and build a Christmas tree of liners on a blank wall. Simple and unfussy. (via sweet paul)

DIY Tree Branch Christmas Tree

Scrounge up a few scraps of tree branches and arrange into a deconstructed silhouette of a Christmas tree. Suspend some ornaments off the branches and voila! Image by Sarah Hogan. (via delight by design)

DIY Tea Light Christmas Tree

This might be the most genius. Take a plain tea light, matches, and a little bit of thread and make a wee tree. So charming and utterly adorable! (via emmas designblogg)
