Is a Christmas tree not just a Christmas tree and more of artwork? When you look over the ideas for a christmas tree you’ll see that there’s a delicate line between an ornamental tree and a piece of original art. If you’re looking for Christmas trees that are unique, maybe you’ll find some of the ideas below inspiring. Remember that most of the Christmas tree ideas below are ideal for miniature tabletop tree designs or holiday table centerpieces.
The Bead Tree
Bead trees are essentially an unfinished cone of paper that is then surrounded by a long string of beads that are attached to the cone. The beads are twisted throughout the cone till they look like the shape of a Christmas tree. These unique Christmas trees can be created from any material you want including glass beads, pearls and even novelty beads. You can also tie ribbon or foil around the beads to give the tree a the perfect holiday look.
The Candy Cane Christmas Tree
This tree looks lovely with candy canes either green or red. Again, you’ll need some sort of conical armature. If you build a tiny one, then you don’t need an armature. This is how you create an teepee-like frame with the length of candy canes. You can then take smaller ones (or cut off the length of longer ones) and arrange them symmetrically around the tree frame using those hooks facing upwards and hanging as branches. If you’re really determined, you could also attach candies to the edges that have been tipped by frosting them with butter cream to make them look like Christmas decorations.
The Lollipop Christmas Tree
This is among the easiest of do it yourself christmas trees. All you need is an Styrofoam armoury and lollipops in green and red. It is also possible to roll the stiff paper that is green into a cone. Then, poke the lollipops’ stems through the tree to ensure it only shows the sweet is visible. This way, the lollipops face downwards , to appear like the branches of a tree. You can choose the bright yellow lollipop and stick the stem straight across the cone’s top as the tree’s top. This is among the most unusual Christmas tree designs.
The Marshmallow and Gum Drop Tree
This idea is based on Martha Stewart’s bizarre Christmas tree designs. The only thing you require to make this is the conical Styrofoam shape in the shape you want (to serve as an armoury) and some white and mint green marshmallows. The marshmallows are sliced with pins or a toothpick and then attach on the side of the Styrofoam cone in a way that is a snow-covered branches. It is also possible to decorate the tree using edible silver or gold cake decorations. The Christmas Star made of shortbread and glitter is a wonderful tree decoration for these kinds of unique Christmas trees.
The Pine Cone Tree
To create this tree all you need are a few extremely healthy pine cones. Join them in a conical form until you’ve got an appearance that resembles an ornamental Christmas tree. Attach holly berries and acorns around the sides to resemble Christmas decorations. Glue the largest one to the over the entire tree to make the perfect christmas tree topper.
If this design isn’t naturalistic , you can use spray paint to make the tree with silver and then paint the acorns with in a gold hue.
The Pipe Cleaner Christmas Tree
This is among the most classic Christmas tree ideas that can be fun to work on with your children. All you need are long lengths or green pipe cleaner that have been cut into equal pieces along with beads with holes big enough to fit across the pipe cleaners.
The following step should be make an artificial tree from just a single pipe cleaner, or two. You just need to find an old wine cork, then jab the the pipe cleaner inside the cork to form an ideal base for the tree. The branches of the tree could be made from pipe cleaners which are bent away from the trunk to form branches. The beads are then put on the branches of pipe cleaners as ornaments. Star-shaped beads can be used to create a tree topper.
The Puff Pastry Christmas Tree
You’ve probably seen wedding cakes that consist of puff pastry stuffed with cream and then placed in a pyramid. Most often, they are topped with chocolate frosting. They look like Christmas Trees.
It is possible to make the identical recipe and then put the Christmas puffs on top in a conical form. In lieu of chocolate drizzle you can drizzle them with white icing, to resemble snow. The edible gold and red glitters can replicate the look of Christmas decorations. A pastry pipe stuffed with green or red decoration gel can be twisted around the cake to create the look of Christmas garlands. You could also skip all the hassle and wrap it in a an elegant ribbon.
Of course , this type of cake needs something to decorate it with. Instead of wedding and groomsmen why not top it off with a battery-powered flashing snowflake or star?
The Sequined Christmas Tree
This unique miniature tree is among the most beautiful of Christmas ideas, however it takes patience to make it happen. To create one, all you require is a few pearl-tip hatpins (preferably in festive colors like red, white, and green) along with bags of glitter with the colours you prefer. It is thought that the sequins are threaded on the hatpins, then painstakingly folded into the conical Styrofoam form until no white space remains. The tiny crystals of plastic can be hung from pins for xmas decorations.
The Tropical Fruit Christmas Tree
If you are a fan of christmas tree designs which are made from food, then you’ll love this unusual centerpiece. The centerpiece is comprised from pomegranates in various sizes (to replicate the appearance of a traditional red Christmas tree.) The larger pomegranates are arranged in a circular arrangement on the bottom, while smaller ones are stacked over them until a tree-like shape is created. It is then possible to place in lychee almonds (still in their original gauzy white wrapper) between the pomegranates in order to mimic white and gold xmas decorations. The tree topper could be made of a piece of star fruit, which has been coated in sugar candied.
