Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner? Honestly, it crept up on me too quickly this year and as fast as time has been flying I’ve been finding it hard to work on many Christmas DIY projects to make my home beautiful.

When I started looking for some “out of the box” Christmas tree ideas, I was so impressed with all the creativity and ideas available to garner some inspiration from. Some of them even tempted me to think about having multiple Christmas trees this year.

People are making Christmas trees out of just about anything including paper, logs, fruit and even wine bottle corks. They are even hanging their Christmas trees upside down or chopping it in half to make a “Portal” effect. Seriously, these people blow my mind with their awesome ideas for Christmas trees!

If you are looking for some inspiration to make your own DIY Christmas trees for a personal decorator touch, here are some beautiful ideas to get you started. Be sure to check out the source sites for each project for complete direction. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

    It sneeks up on me every year! We did not decorate or even get the tree out this year.

    The ladder tree is cute, I wonder about putting a second one that’s not as tall, unter the first one, so that you have steps on all four sides?
