Minimal Xmas Trees Inspiration

It’s been a few years since I decided to make minimal Xmas trees instead of traditional ones. Here are a few trees I did over the years: I hope you like them…

1/ WHITE BRANCH

2/ PLEXIGLASS

The same tree but with an original and colourful decoration made with nothing more than Plexiglass Colour Samples (easy to get your hands on Etsy shops  or ask manufacturers to send you sample swatch).

3/ PHOTO TREE

I printed some of my travel photos and used little clips to attach them to the tree. Some old camera film will add an extra vintage touch to it…( also a good idea is to use old family photos ).

4/ THE MAQUETTE TREE

We made this last year using some leftover cardboard from IKEA.The simple shape was inspired by the architectural maquette we used to make at uni.Simple but chic. You can also buy a ready made one from NOTONTHEHIGHSTREET .

 

 

5. TEA LIGHTS TREE

That’s the tree I designed two years ago and my dad made it for me. I absolutely loved it: it was such a surprise when I got home and saw it!!!

He did some little-rounded holes at the end of each ‘branch’ to insert tea light candles. If you’re not very good in DIY you can get  a similar one from Designobject .

6. MUJI WOODEN TREE

This super cute wood tree is from MUJI ( apparently not available anymore on their website). Very easy to assemble and store, it’s the perfect Christmas tree for small flats.


What’s you minimal Xmas tree like? I’d love to see a picture of it 🙂
