Most of the time I feel so overwhelmed with Christmas decor that I tend to keep it to a minimum. It also applies to plastic Christmas decor that you need to store all year round just to take it out for a month. That's why I love the concept of the DIY Christmas wall tree from branches.
It's minimalist, it's free and you don't need to worry about where to keep it. You can just throw it out and pick up more branches the following year.
Over the years I made a lot of advent calendars that were practically a Christmas wall tree.

To spice up this Christmas wall tree I made a few macrame ornaments - a snowflake, a circle, and a feather. I think macrame ornaments add a certain boho vibe.
- Branches from the forest
- Clay for stars
- Small round ornaments (from Dollar store)
- 2mm rope for macrame
- Wooden rings (for macrame)
PIN IT TO MAKE FOR YOUR HOME
Step 1 - take a walk in the woods
Go for a chill walk in the woods or to the park and pick up branches. I got mine in a variety of sizes and lengths.
Step 2 - tie the branches together
Arrange it in a shape of a Christmas tree and tie branches together with a rope.
For the star, I used the star from Dollar tree. And I attached the rope to the picture nail.
Step 3 - decorate the tree
I made ornaments for this tree from clay, cheap dollar tree mini balls that I spray painted gold, and fun macrame.
You can watch me make them and explain how it's done on the video here.
Merry Christmas and Happy holidays!
This is also so wonderful! I'd love to make my own, maybe with some pine branches if I could find them. Beautiful!
Thank you! Pine branches would be great! It would add some color to it! Love this idea!
