DIY Vintage Trailer Tabletop Christmas Tree

Welcome to day 2 of the 7th annual Handmade Holidays blog hop! I can't even believe that we have been doing this hop for 7 years now but it's been awesome. This is the second year that we have introduced holiday decor on to the hop. This year I was really inspired by the retro holiday decor at all of the stores. I actually have a YouTube video coming out pretty soon about all of the holiday trends that I'm seeing this year in 2017. So with the inspiration I created a gorgeous holiday mantle. Today I'm going to share with you a really easy mini Christmas tree inside of a camping trailer. Camping trailers and vintage trailers are one of the trends that I've spotted everywhere this holiday season and you can make this cute tabletop tree for under $5.

You can actually create this scene project with any miniature tree and a coffee mug, flower pot, or any other vessel that matches your holiday Decor. I love shopping at stores like 99 Cents Only to get really cute holiday items on a budget.

So let's get started:

Here's what you're going to need to create this tree:

  • miniature Christmas tree
  • coffee mug shaped like a vintage camper
  • hot glue gun
  • green glass marbles
  • miniature glass ornaments
  • cute gift tags
  • chenille stems in green and red
  • wire cutters
  • red and white candy striped ribbon

This miniature Christmas Tree Project comes together really simply. You can use this on a mantle or is part of a miniature Christmas tree display. Or display it in your office or on your desk to spread a little bit of Christmas cheer.

You can also use floral foam and skip the hot glue so that you can reuse the mug or container after the holidays are over. Instead of glass ornaments you could use really cute gift tags. I saw great gift tags at Michael's, Target, and lots of different stores this holiday season. Bonus, they already have a string attached for hanging!

Once you have all the supplies gathered, it's time to make the project. I created this handy-dandy tutorial video for you to watch because this project is super easy. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
