Denim Christmas Tree – the DIY version
To me, there is nothing comfier than a pair of perfectly broken in blue jeans. When I wanted to invoke coziness this Christmas season, I had the brilliant idea of adding that element to one of my trees. Here’s how I created coziness in my dining room with this Denim Christmas tree.
After I decorated the tree in the family room, I had a lot of leftover ornaments that didn’t fit with this year’s decor. Anyway, being the frugalista that I am, I thought I would repurpose these unused ornaments into a nice pairing for my dining room. Here’s how I did it!

Cut your denim into workable strips. Mine were between a half inch to an inch wide. Hot glue the jeans to the ornament, overlapping each piece. Finish it off with twine if you’d like!
I mixed in a bit of ticking stripe to a few to compliment the theme in my family room.
But, I didn’t stop there! I had some leftover mini stockings I found on clearance last year that were red and gray.
I dissembled the stocking my removing the red embellishments. Then, I hot glued them back together and added some tinsel yarn for a bit of whimsy!
Some ornaments I just added the tinsel yarn to with a dab of hot glue.
The last DIY ornament I made was similar to the denim ornaments, but with only ticking stripe fabric. Using hot glue, I took pieces of pine cone and more tinsel yarn to top it off.
Using a combination of denim and burlap, I created a bow for the tree topper.
I added bits of blue jean material to the ribbon garland here and there.
Embellishing a few bows the same way looks beautiful on this Denim Christmas Tree.
My tree skirt is just a bit of leftover ticking fabric to hide the base.
So what do you think? Does denim work on a Christmas tree? Have you tried this before?
