8 DIY Christmas Decor Ideas for Minimalists

DIY Minimalist Decor for the Holidays!

Lets talk about 8 DIY Christmas Decor Ideas for Minimalists!

It hasn’t been long since I’ve implemented several habits of the minimalist lifestyle. A little over year ago I read the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up by, Marie Kondo.



This book changed my life! Kondo shares great insight on a minimalist lifestyle, how to get stared and all the ends and outs of how to maintain a tidy home! I kid you not, I read this little gem in a day and a half and began a new lifestyle immediately! 

A minimalist lifestyle lead me to some creative DIY Minimalist Christmas Decor Ideas

I’ve created some minimalist DIY Christmas decorations I’d like to share with the world! I love all of these and they were all very simple and inexpensive! 


Dollar Tree Christmas Tree

What you’ll need:

18 inch Dollar Tree Christmas Tree

Dollar Tree Christmas Tree $1

Grapevine Decorative Balls Dollar Tree

Grapevine Decorative Balls Dollar Tree $1

3 Pack of Twine Dollar Tree

Twine Dollar Tree $1

You’ll also need an old flower pot of your choice and I used white tissue paper

First: I opened the tree and separated the branches. I didn’t use the pieces you’re supposed to connect to the bottom since I knew I would be placing in the Flower pot with tissue paper stuffed around to stand. 

Second: I strung the grapevine balls onto some twine. I had 2 packs of the grapevine balls (12 balls). I wrapped the twins around the tree until it was the best length for decorating the tree. 

Third: I put the garland I made onto the tree! 

How Darling?!

Rope Wreath

What you’ll need:

First: I used my hot glue gun to glue the braided rope around the metal piece I used to shape the wreath. 

Second: I took some pieces of the eucalyptus and hot glued them onto the wreath over the section where the rope had been cut to attach to the wreath (that way that portion was covered and not an eyesore). 


Third: I hot glued the 3 wooded beads and the holly on as desired. 

I love, love, love this cute little minimalist wreath!

Simple Christmas Tree Wreath

(All from the Dollar Tree)

What you’ll need:

First: I painted the wooden Christmas Tree I purchased from The Dollar Tree for $1 (yay). I originally painted it with chalk board paint but the decided to do black and white stripes. I got out some painters tape and made some stripes on the wooden Christmas Tree. After I painted over the tree white I just removed the painters tape and had a cute little black and white striped Christmas tree! 

Second: I attached the wooden and now painted tree to the wreath. I used the craft cord purchased from Michael’s. 

Third: I took the Christmas floral pick and separated the pieces so I could stick into the wreath as desired. 

 Then I placed the separated pieces into my wreath! 

Simple, Inexpensive and minimalist wreath!
