This project may be the easiest, cheapest, quickest Christmas craft we’ve ever done…and have we a lot of awesome decorations that fit that category! (our vintage photo blocks are just one example) But this three step modern Christmas tree is that it actually takes less than 10 mins, its costs $10 and there are three steps – total. We also love that it can pull double duty as a card holder.

What You’ll Need:
- Command Hooks (mini size, value pack)
- Flat decorations (snowflakes, stars, circles etc)
- Measuring tape
- Useful but optional – laser pointer
Find the centre of your wall or table – wherever you are making the tree. A laser pointer is useful but not necessary for this step. Attach one command hook to the wall to make the top of your tree, with the hook facing the ceiling.
At the bottom on your tree (either at table height or the floor) measure how wide the tree will be. The closer to the ground you go, the wider the base of the tree will be. Decide how far apart you want the ‘branches’ to be (our tree was table height and we did them 6′ apart). Keep in mind that the bigger the tree, the more command hooks you will need. Stick the command hooks to the wall at your chosen intervals with the hooks facing the floor.
Start the tree with the top hook, tying the yarn to the hook to secure.
Wrap the yarn back and forth from the top hook to the bottom ones, looping back on itself each time. Tie another knot at the top hook when finished.
We hope you love this quick modern Christmas tree as much as we do, happy crafting!
