Simple Honeycomb Ball Christmas Tree

Make a Christmas tree out of tissue paper honeycomb balls! Perfect Christmas wall or holiday party decoration!

Christmas trees don't just come in the real or fake variety. They also come in the tissue paper variety! I made this fun alternative Christmas tree made from honeycomb balls for Oriental Trading. It's perfect for decorating a tight space like an entryway, for colorful holiday party decor, or for a year when you just don't feel like putting up a traditional Christmas tree!

DIY Mini Christmas Tree Wreath

Make this gorgeous Christmas wreath in under 30 minutes with mini bottle brush trees!

Of all the Christmas decorations out there, I think these classic mini bottle brush trees are my favorite! There is just something so sweet about them, and adding little pom-poms to them as ornaments just makes them oh SO cute, don't you think?! I made this DIY mini Christmas tree wreath for the Oriental Trading blog to showcase these little guys. They are surrounded by "snow" created by simply wrapping a snowflake tinsel garland around a wreath form. 

You can whip up this wreath in under 30 minutes - check out how easy it is to make!
