Hey, all you Christmas tree lovers, this one is for you! This year, I have been obsessed with tabletop trees. They are classy and add the perfect seasonal décor touch to any room. However they can be expensive, which is why I decided to make my own for just a few dollars. I headed to my local Dollar Tree and picked up a few artificial tabletop trees, some faux flowers and greenery, a tree topper, and a basket for just $1 each. Using white spray paint I had at home, I frosted the trees to make them appear as though they were dusted with snow. I topped them off with the faux flowers and greeney and set them in a basket with white tissue paper and voila… festive décor on a budget!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Artificial Tabletop Christmas Trees
- Faux Flowers, Greenery, etc.
- Hot Glue Gun (Not Sold at Dollar Tree)
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Gold Star Ornament Toppers
- Metal Baskets
- Bronze and White Spray Paint (Not Sold at Dollar Tree, could also use brown and white paint)
- Burlap Ribbon
- White Tissue Paper
- White Foam Disks
- Mod Podge®
- Faux Snow
Follow Along Step-by-Step:
- First, I spray painted the green tabletop Christmas trees white and left parts still green to make it look as though snow had covered the branches (you can use white paint as well).
- Once dry, I applied Mod Podge® to the branches and added sparkly faux snow to the stems for some texture and shimmer on the tree.
- Once the tree looked rustic and snowy, I used a hot glue gun to add some faux greenery, red and white holly berries, poinsettias, and pinecones.
- To hold the tree, I used a white wired basket that I spray painted bronze. I stuck the “trunk” into the center of two stacked foam disks and placed the tree in the basket.
- Then, I balled up plain white tissue paper and placed it in the basket to make it appear as if snow was piled up at the base of the tree.
- I finished by adding this adorable gold sparkly star tree topper to the top of the tree.
- To display the trees, I surrounded them with fake greenery and burlap ribbon on my foyer table.
