Rustic Dollar Tree Rag Christmas Tree – DIY

2 Materials
15 Minutes

ho doesn’t like good Dollar Tree craft for the weekend? Not me… ha ha. Love those little makeovers that are possible thanks to that store. On one of my trips to a Dollar Tree I was lucky to find some of those mini trees. Never crafted with them so it was only appropriate to try. So I picked white and green ones. Even dough I love idea of White Christmas decor decorating white tree always seemed to be a challenge for me but I think I am ready. It will be for sure some kind of Rustic Christmas Tree.

I had so many ideas for my white Dollar Trees but as I unpacked and unfolded my tree in the house I noticed that they are completely different shades of white …. Bummer! One of them had a purple hue to it. Thank goodness I had a bit of white spray paint left. Hopefully it will work! I used  Rust-Oleum Paint and Primer White

Few sprays and all that purple hue was gone! That was easy!As I mentioned before dollar trees are really looking like dollar trees if you know what I mean … They are just not that full even if you try hard to spread their branches.

As you can see my plan is to use pillowcases in white satin like material and white and grey striped one that I also purchased at the Dollar Tree. My goal was to make Rustic Christmas tree and fill in gaps in between branches.

Cut or like me… rip around 3 inches wide and around 10 inches long strips of material. Can’t really tell you how many you just have to make that judgment yourself. It all depends how full you like you rag Christmas tree to be.

I really didn’t want to hide all branches… my goal was just fill in in between. My idea of rag tree DIY is taking its shape and I like what I see. Yess!!!

Simple ornament white bulb lights are just perfect this project don’t you think so? If you curious where I found them … they are from Target dollar section.

and I think I am done! TAA- DAAA!!! My non-perfect Perfect Christmas tree.

l LOVE that raggedy tree look. It really does have that Rustic feel! Have to tell you is not easy to take a good picture

Still not a perfect picture but I had to share how it looks at night. I think it is time to get a better camera!
