In a few days the time has come to make the Christmas tree. Someone has already done it but let’s pretend nothing. Tradition wants December 8 to be the date on which to indulge in the preparation of Christmas decorations. Is there little left and you’re still running out of ideas? Do you want to create something new that strikes? Well, below I’ve collected the best 10+ ideas that could be right for you on how to create an original DIY Christmas tree.
The tree that I would
I am quite classic, for me to give up fir, albeit fake, is extremely difficult. I admit, however, that the search for material for this post has jeopardized my initial idea of a Christmas tree in shades of red and white, or rainbow, or with pink touches or total white from which I started.
Then it happens that the rainbow and the pink idea rejected me. The first my husband and the second obviously my son. Total white I had already done it a few years ago and so willingly or unwillingly I fall back on the classic always chic combo of red and white. I will make it shabby with wooden decorations and touches of natural shades. In the head it’s not bad we’ll see then what will come out. But now back to us and the 10 most original DIY ideas on how to create a fantasy-proof Christmas tree.
10 ideas for an original DIY Christmas tree
1. Dress Christmas tree
I had made a Christmas tree dress last year with my personalized fabric. Well, in recent years this idea has been depopulating in multiple variations. It is made with a mannequin, a rigid or semi-rigid structure to give shape to the skirt, Christmas wreaths, decorations of your choice and all our passion for fashion to bring out.
2. Wooden wall with lights
Very simple and impressive. This type of Christmas tree is made with wooden sticks available in any forest or park, Christmas lights and various decorations. The latest version, on the other hand, consists of a plywood panel on which to place threads of fir-shaped lights. Original, practical and space-saving.
3. Christmas tree in wood
In addition to being extremely green, the wooden Christmas tree is also of great impact. The tree itself becomes a real design object to give an extra touch to our home. It is made with structures in wooden sticks or plywood boards and decorations of your choice. Fabulous and super original.
4. Minimal style
For those who love a minimal style these ideas are perfect. They do not clutter and require very little manual work while being original and pleasant. They are made only with pieces of Christmas wreaths and if desired by adding decorations of your choice.
Are you a photographer? Do you have a passion for photography or do you simply like to remember your and your family’s best moments? These ideas are not only original, but extremely easy to implement. Just place the chosen photos so that they recreate a fir tree. A few lights around and the Christmas tree is served.
6. Books Christmas tree
Do you love reading? Do you have more books in your home than room for a Christmas tree? The first idea is realized by placing them in a pyramid, giving them a fir shape and decorating everything with lights. The second using the pages of an old book or maybe a notebook, or a diary why not, stick them in the shape of a fir tree on a wall and voila! Le jeux sont fait!
Always for those with limited space, these ideas are real godsend. Just take a blank canvas, or a plywood panel, and create in any way you want our personalized Christmas tree. Whether it’s with a string of pearls, or with circles given by finished toilet rolls or drawn with brushes, it doesn’t matter. In this case it is essential to use only the imagination to create your most beautiful Christmas picture.
Do you know that ladder you keep in the garage or closet? For a month a year he could become the protagonist. This is a beautiful Christmas tree that can be made very cheap. A ladder, fishing line and Christmas balls of all colors and shapes. Brilliant!
9. Cardboard box
Ideal proposal for those who have children or love to customize everything by hand. To make this DIY Christmas tree you need one or more cardboard boxes to give the shape of a fir tree, colored sheets of paper to cut out and stick, photos, pens and markers. Easier, cheaper and more original than this.
10. Chalk and blackboard
Do you have little space and maybe you would like to change the shape of your Christmas tree every day? Then you just need a blackboard and chalks to realize this simple DIY idea. What can I say, minimum expense for maximum yield!
Other ideas for a particular Christmas tree
If hanging the balls in the usual way is too trivial, you could opt for the following idea in which they cascade down from above, creating a truly special effect and out of the usual routine. In addition, the back of the tree can remain totally bare with a valid reason. ;P
Finally, if the Christmas tree doesn’t fit in your plans and you are a little Grinch you could take it with philosophy using the pile of dirty clothes that you have piled up somewhere. I don’t know who the creator was but he’s a fucking genius! LOL!
