Burlap bag Christmas tree

First up, this project by Corine Mapes- Junk to Gems involves making rustic burlap Christmas trees using an old coffee bag. No sewing machine is required; hot glue can be used instead. The process includes cutting out tree shapes, gluing them together, stuffing them, and adding a trunk.

Decorative elements like fabric bows and jewelry accents are added, and the trees are placed in small cheese boxes filled with greens, fitting perfectly into your cottage farmhouse-style decor.

Candace @ Vintage News Junkie has a fondness for burlap, and took on a DIY Christmas tree project, affectionately named "loopy." This tree, made with burlap, is fairly simple to craft; simply loop the ribbon to make the Christmas tree shape. To add a touch of sparkle, top with glitter Mod Podge.

This project by Nancy at Craft Your Happiness creates a DIY Christmas tree from six plastic hangers and burlap. It's ideal for a small space or as a secondary tree.

You'll need hangers, burlap, chenille stems, LED lights, jingle bells, and a 3D star pattern, provided by Nancy. The hangers are tied together to form a frame, then wrapped with burlap and adorned with lights, bells, and a star topper.
