Ok, The Giving Tree is a beloved book, but I thought it was an appropriate name for this wall-mounted Christmas Tree made entirely of wrapped gifts.

This tree is made of various lengths and shades of green fused glass, suspended from a disk like a mobile. It creates a unique, modern Christmas display. It could easily be reproduced in other mediums, including painted wood or metal.

There actually is a Christmas Tree buried deep inside there, but there’s so much else going on that I felt it worthy of inclusion in this list. You’ve got a sleigh, a ladder, logs, gears, lights, a tonne of garland, ribbons, bows, bells, and – yup – even a Bird House. This is a Rustic DIY Decor lover’s dream!
Scrapbook Christmas Tree
This one is a labor of love. Similar to a the Photo Collage Christmas Tree, this one takes it to the next level by incorporating other memorabilia and treasured objects to form a beautiful and unique Christmas tree.

I love the way this piece uses various green found objects, plus utilizes a mirror to instantly make the tree twice the size. So unique. So easy. So fun!!

I love the idea of this, especially for smaller spaces. Take a picture of a Christmas Tree, either a decorated one or one in the full snow of nature. Enlarge it and print it out as individual prints that can be hung on the wall to create a collage of that tree. Beautiful!
Tapestry Printed Christmas Tree Alternative
If you’re starved for space AND time, all you need is a large picture that you can print at Kinkos. Something about 3′ x 4′ will cost you around $10 to print. Hang it with some dowling and string, and you’re all set with the thinnest Christmas Tree possible!. If you want to add a bit more flair, layer on some small, lightweight ornaments, tinsel, lights, etc.
Sheet Music Christmas Tree

I love how the delicate notes of the sheet music enhance this DIY Christmas Tree accent. This is a table-top tree, as I don’t think this would translate well to a full-sized Christmas tree. If you prove me wrong, send me a photo!!
Tripod Christmas Tree

This is similar in concept to the Ladder Christmas Tree, but this uses a Camera Tripod, which are easy to expand and set up. The Tripod is then decorated with lights, ribbons, and Christmas Ornaments to create a unique Pop Up Christmas Tree.
Candle Christmas Tree
The most complicated part of this DIY Christmas Tree is creating the multi-tier Christmas Tree shaped base. Once that’s ready, you simply add a variety of different votive candles to each tier to create a unique Christmas display that doesn’t need additional lights.
