20+ DIY Mini Christmas Tree Decor Ideas

Make these simple DIY mini Christmas trees perfect to include every year with your Christmas decorations.

Along with everything else in life, you can go so many different directions when it comes to Christmas decor. Traditional, rustic, farmhouse, eclectic—the list goes on.

When we moved into our home a few years ago I was faced with the daunting and exciting task of deciding what route we were going to go with this huge home we now needed to fill. We had always lived in small apartments saving every penny we could so we were pretty much starting from scratch when it came to decorations.

After some brainstorming, we decided we would go the more traditional route with lots of red and I loved the idea of decorating with mini Christmas trees. Through the years the collection has grown and each year I try to make a few more mini Christmas trees to add to the collection.

That’s why this year I thought I’d share with you some of the many creative mini Christmas tree decor ideas I’ve looked at for inspiration.

So with that, here’s 20+ DIY mini Christmas tree decor ideas to get the creative juices flowing. The possibilities are really endless but these ideas are just too great I had to share.

Which one is your favorite?
