Around November birch trees will start falling in the forest and they’ll be asking you to collect them and put them to good use. Instead of letting them lay dormant on the forest floor, collect them and saw them into small pieces and use them as the bases for this miniature table forest. Little trees, as well as tea lights, are available for purchase at nearly every craft store and complete this Christmas table decoration. Of course, a forest wouldn’t be complete without reindeer; go in search of reindeer figurines and hide them between the trees.

Silvers, whites, crystals and glossy pinecones. This fresh and fashionable DIY Christmas decor is great for the holiday season and will last you through the New Year.

Three different levels of candles create a nice texture and add a variety of different dimensions. The table will be enjoyed by all ages and guests as it is appreciated for its simple and elegant beauty.

This is a great DIY Christmas craft for younger kiddos who want to help out with Christmas decorating in some special way. Spray painting pinecones (in the backyard) is super fun for them. It’s also a great family activity to gather everyone together at such a busy time. When the holiday rush is stressing you out, take some time for this family activity and create little trees together. These will also make some really great and simple gifts as they are affordable. Add an extra spark by putting little rhinestones or sticky gemstones on the pine cone leaves.

Cheer up that Chinaware with these fun Christmas tree cutouts. Something more heavy weight and wrinkle proof will work best here. We know that felt is a bit throwback right now, but it could be your best option. Go a bit more rustic and use burlap for the tree cut outs or spice it up with some silver sparkles.

32. Elongated Table Wreath

Who said Christmas wreaths had to be circular? This elongated table wreath is a great way to stretch out the greens and allow it to span the entire length of your table. From a bird’s eye view this looks like a Christmas tree on a table with all of the warm yellow candles glowing at the tips of the branches. Add a bit more intention with cloth napkins instead of paper ones and put a few nice mints or handmade chocolate bars on top of a sweet finish.
