While a wooden tree isn’t exactly traditional, it’s the perfect modern little Christmas tree idea.

I’m sure a lot of you have already jumped on the Christmas decor train by now, especially after this crazy pom pom tree and this non-traditional Christmas cactus tree version.

Just in case you haven’t, I’m wrapping up our around the world travel-inspired holiday series with this DIY Mini Wooden Christmas Tree idea!

Of all of the quirky ways we’ve come up with for celebrating the holidays on the go, these little guys are definitely a put-me-in-your-pocket-and-go type decor.

Of course, a mantle will work too, whatever floats your snow globe!

Not only are they a cheap Christmas tree alternative, but you can make as many or as few as you’d like in all shapes and sizes.

Ways to Make a Wooden Christmas Tree

A lot of people have embraced the not-so-traditional holiday decor and trees are definitely one way of mixing things up! 

We repurposed small cone shapes from the craft store to make these cute and little Christmas trees, but there are several ways you can go about making a wooden Christmas tree, big or small. 

Here are few materials for an alternative to making this mini tree DIY —

  • wooden pallet
  • laser cut wooden shapes
  • stacked wood rounds
  • wooden dowel rods

Basically the sky is the limit on what you can dream up for these!

Little Christmas Tree Ideas

Since artificial Christmas trees are on a rise in popularity, this mini Christmas tree concept is a fun way to mix things up!

Plus minimalist lovers everywhere will rejoice on how modern and easy to make these are. 

In case you’re wondering how in the world you’re supposed to celebrate with a mini Christmas tree, you can use them as a Christmas centerpiece or table decor, as a numbered advent calendar, or simply as modern mantle decorations.

Materials And Tools Needed To Make A DIY Wooden Christmas Tree

These wooden Christmas trees are essentially just tree shaped wooden cones that you can paint to match your holiday decor theme.

You could easily use scrap wood to make a small forest of these abstract, simple Christmas trees if you wanted to!

Step 2 : DIY Mini Wooden Christmas Trees by top Houston Blogger Ashley Rose - Sugar & Cloth - DIY Christmas Decor - Holiday Decor #christmas #holiday #xmas #christmasdecor #holidaydecor #wood #tree #christmastree #diydecor #diy #homedecor

First, paint each block the colors of your choice for the base and let them dry to the touch.

Next, use a smaller brush to paint gold leaf caps at the tops of each to represent the star or snowcap, and then let them dry completely.

You can add a few small dots for an added touch, too!

I think you know me well enough by now to know that I can’t let too many things go without a little extra polka dot or gold leaf action. Sorry, not sorry.

I’m pumped to finally be heading home to Houston to actually get to put up my own decor for the holidays, I feel so behind considering everyone else is practically already decked out!

Last year I ended up with Christmas in October because I was too lazy to take the tree down for a month just out it back up again after a photo shoot, oops. What’s the earliest you’ve ever decorated?!
