How to make a tabletop Christmas tree is perfect for last minute decorations around the house.

How To Make A Tabletop Christmas Tree: Scandi Style

I love skinny Christmas trees that are decorated with less ornaments for that scandinavian style. If you are using a real Christmas tree take a few branches from it. If you are using an artificial tree you can usually find lots of branches at places where they sell real Christmas Trees. You can probably can get the branches for free. They are happy to give the cut up branches away since they have lots they cut up and just laying around.


  • Burlap fabric ( you will need 2 pieces of fabric 12 by 12 inches, you can cut it up bigger and later cut off what you don’t need.)
  • Ornaments ( Any small ornaments will work, I used a Santa theme.)
  • Rocks, gravel or soil ( small rocks and potting soil)
  • Hemp String

How To Make A Tabletop Christmas Tree:

Place the branch into a vase. Cover the root of the branch with potting soil or gravel and rocks. This will keep the branch secure inside the vase.

Wrap the vase with a piece of 12 inch by 12 inch burlap. Tie the burlap with a piece of hemp string a few times around the top of the vase. This basically make the base of the tabletop Christmas tree secure.

Wrap another piece of fabric around the vase again. I used 12 by 12 inch of burlap fabric for this part as well. Make sure you leave a ruffle showing around the neck. Tie the hemp and then create a bow. The ruffle gives it a pretty look.

I added some miniature Santa Christmas ornaments here and there. I really love the Scandinavian feel this tabletop Christmas tree has.

  6. Oh my gosh, when I first saw your little tree I thought it was a baby Christmas tree. I would never have thought of getting just a branch to make a table top version. That’s so clever.
