It’s time for the annual Festival of Trees! Every year, I like to feature DIY tabletop Christmas trees and topiaries and I have a beautiful collection to share this week. First, here are more than a dozen, DIY Christmas topiaries from past years. From topiary trees made with old t-shirts to elegant moss topiaries and sparkling peppermint candy trees, I hope you’ll find a favorite to add to your Christmas décor this year.
Do you remember this creamy, dreamy Festival of Trees? There’s a pretty tree for almost any decorating style in this beautiful collection from designer Rebekah Meier.
Designer Patty Schaffer made clever Christmas cones with t-shirt yarn. Why not repurpose those old t-shirts you never wear and make a few T-Shirt Christmas Cones.
This vintage style Scrappy Fabric Christmas Cone is a show piece for your favorite, leftover fabric scraps and trims. The vintage color scheme is charming, and easy enough to change up to match your own favorite Christmas colors.
The next two Christmas topiaries are made with wired ribbon and use the same easy techniques. Depending on the ribbon you choose, you could craft rustic, country-style
Ruffled Burlap Cones or the striking, red & white Ruffled Ribbon Cones .
Here’s a timeless classic — Sparkling Peppermint Candy Trees.
You might not think that moss can be glamorous, but take a look at these Elegant Moss Topiary Cones. Imagine a pair of these flanking your holiday mantel!
If you prefer a more rustic Christmas, then take a closer look at this Birch Bark Woodland Topiary Cone.
Have you tried making any of these topiaries? Or is one on your DIY list for this year? Starting tomorrow, I’ll have a new Christmas tree craft each day. Each one is so different, and I’m excited to see if you’ll have a favorite one from this week’s Festival of Trees.
P.S. Don’t forget about the Cozy Home giveaway going on this week!
