Make a sweet farmhouse Lace Doily Christmas Tree in just a few minutes , it’s so pretty and wintry!
I didn’t quite set out to make a lace doily Christmas tree.
Actually, I grabbed a paper mache cone shape the other day at the craft store and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. If you’ve been with me any length of time you know I have a weakness for the combo of natural and bright white. Like this, and this, and this.
I love Scandinavian/farmhouse style Christmas, don’t you? Christmas is crazy enough sometimes without tons of bright colors in every single corner of the house!
I mean, don’t get me wrong, there’s definitely a time and place for bright red and green! But my mom has a lovely collection of quiet Scandinavian/farmhouse inspired Christmas decorations in her house and they are lovely.
And considering that my mom is the rare person who managed to decorate in the 90’s in such a way that it STILL looks nice and not dated today, I think I should probably try to emulate her more!
(Surely there will come a day when I regret those 2010’s chevrons!)
I think this doily Christmas tree fits the bill. And I love that it’s the kind of holiday decoration that’s totally appropriate to leave up all winter. Because technically it’s a snowy winter tree, right??
I mean, really, I get so excited to put out holiday decorations after Thanksgiving, but I HATE putting everything away after the holidays are over. Any excuse to keep something out for a little longer makes me happy!
(Who am I kidding, Aa usually packs up all the Christmas things while I corral the toddler, at that point in the year, I’m pretty fried!)
Anyway, back to the Lace Doily Christmas Tree! While I was rummaging around in my craft stash, I found a leftoever stack of doilies. I thought on a tree the doilies might look kind of snowy and I think I was right, I love how they look!
Here’s how I did it:

Lace Doily Christmas Tree Instructions:
1. This was such an easy project. You could even do it with an older child! First, cut your doilies in half.
2. Next start hot gluing the doilies to the cone. Keep the amount of overlap on each row and between each row as even as you can. Work your way up the cone until the entire thing is covered.
What a nice blank Christmas tree shape!
Keep going til you get to the top…
And that’s it! Enjoy your lacy, snowy doily Christmas tree!
