One of my favorite things about Christmas is Christmas trees. Ever since I was a child I made my own trees diy Christmas decorations with whatever I found handy: paper, lights, any tree, fabric.

Of course, that applied to the diy Christmas ornaments as well. So I felt inspired to search for creative and crafty ways to create a Christmas tree or to decorate them.

Over 30+ Creative DIY Christmas Tree Ideas

When I was a child we didn’t have enough money to cover our expenses and because of that I didn’t have many opportunities to have a big, great Christmas tree and I so wanted to have one. So I managed to make mine.

My mom used to have a “Pine” if I could call that a pine LOL. I used to decorate it with anything I could find.

Most of the time I asked my mom to buy me some cardstock, yarn, and threads and I made my own Christmas tree ornaments.

Creativity makes the trick and that’s why today I’m sharing this collection of creative trees!

I had found many more than these but sadly I couldn’t find the source of them. Some people don’t pin them from the source so I couldn’t track them. So sad! They were amazing too.
