Need a festive and frugal Christmas centerpiece?! ๐ŸŽ„

No one will be able to tell this little tabletop tree is actually from Dollar Tree after this easy DIY Christmas makeover! Use faux snow and a few holiday floral embellishments, also found at the Dollar Tree, to dress up this inexpensive $1 Christmas tree into a pretty centerpiece.

Your tree will look CHIC, not cheap!

I love that you can turn little 18 inch Dollar Tree Christmas trees (that are just a BUCK!) into designer looking decor, which definitely feels more farmhouse boutique style than a dollar store.

In fact, you could make a few of these as neighbor gifts or hostess gifts. Dollar Tree even has little battery LED lights you could add too!

Hip Tips:

  • To make this tree extra full, buy an extra tree from Dollar Tree and use those branches to fill in the gaps and it’ll appear larger and more high-end looking!
  • Before buying more floral embellishments, check out your own supply of holiday faux berries, Christmas ornaments, and accessories at home first.
  • I found a can of white faux snow for this project, but you could even use some white paint instead.
  • The burlap containers pictured are repurposed planters from another project, but my Dollar Tree has some farmhouse looking metal buckets currently that would look great too as a base!

Dollar Tree Christmas Tree Centerpiece

Print

Supplies Needed

  • 18 inch tabletop Christmas tree
  • White Christmas tree flocking spray
  • Faux berries, small pine cones, and any other floral embellishments (Dollar Tree)
  • Christmas bow for topper
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Floral foam
  • 7 inch planter, or some type of basket, box, or container

Directions

1

Take the tree out of box and separate each branch. Instead of setting up the stand, I used a piece of floral foam to support it.

2

Spray faux snow all over each tree branch and let dry.

3

Cut faux berries into smaller bundles and hot glue them to tree branches. Glue any additional embellishments trying to make them evenly spaced throughout the tree.

4

Place tree in a flower pot, basket, decorative box, bowl, or any other desired container.
