DIY Luxe Mini Christmas Trees for $5 or Less – Holiday Decor Ideas

(upbeat music) – [Woman] Hey guys, welcome
back to the channel. It’s Tresha and I wanted to share three Mini Christmas Tree ideas
with you that are $5 or less. And they don’t look like $5 trees either. These are so easy to make
and they are customizable. So let me show you exactly what I did. For each of these projects,
I first made a cone. To make one, you will
need to take a long piece of string or yarn and tie
it around a pencil or pen. Next you want to stretch the
yarn the length of the paper and make an arc. Just keep your pen straight
while you move the pen all the way across to the other side. Afterwards, cut out the
arc with your scissors. Next take each of the
ends and fold it inward to create a cone. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. To secure the cone, you can either staple or glue it in place. Okay, so the first design option, this is the easiest and quickest one and it only cost me $5. I purchased three tinsel garlands, one mini-tree topper, and
a piece of poster board. I was able to make a cone
that was 22 inches high and 12 inches wide at the
base using poster board. After I made the cone, I placed a big glob of hot glue on the base. And then placed the end
of the garland on top. Then I wrapped the garland
all around the cone, gluing it here and there
until I reached the top. Then I just cut away the excess. And then smoothed the garland out. And finally, add a tree topper on top. Now for the next design. The cone is 12 inches
high and three inches wide at the base, total cost $3. For this project I used
one file organizer, metallic stickers, and an ornament. First, I cut out all the
sides of the file organizer. Then I cut it in the middle. This is the piece I will
use to make my cone. To secure the cone, I
stapled it at the base and at the top. Don’t worry, you won’t see the staple. Next, you want to place
stickers anywhere you like. I decided to put words
that were important to me. And then when I finished,
I glued an ornament on top. Now if you really want
to splurge, you can get one of those push lights
and place it at the base to make it really shine. (upbeat music) And for the final design,
the cone is 18 inches high by eight inches wide at the base. The total cost was $5. This tree was very easy to make, but it will take a little patience. For this project, you will
need one poster board, and three packs of cure pipes. After I made my cone,
I took each stem pipe and curled it up like so. Afterwards, I glued each one to the cone with a hot glue gun. In order to conceal
some of the white space, I layered more stems on top. That’s it. So which one did you like the most? I want to give a shout out to Julie Seal for being the first person
