Hello! I am Libbie from A Life Unfolding where I share about Home decor, DIY, and renovations. Today, I am sharing a quick idea for your holiday home decor.

This time of year, I become obsessed with plants that are shaped into mini Christmas trees! When I saw them at my local Trader Joe’s, I grabbed a few for this quick DIY holiday arrangement. Look at how cute these trees are-these little trees are right up my alley.

How to Make a Mini Evergreen Arrangement

Begin by choosing your favorite mini trees. I chose these three because I liked the color and height variety.

Mini Christmas tree Tips:

Feel free to use my tutorial as a springboard to creativity! The following tips will give you more ideas and ways you can stretch beyond the basic steps I outlined.

Pick a container

Choose a vessel. I am using a larger vintage bowl I had on hand, but this would be amazing in a large basket or crate. Really anything would work with this.

I lined my container to protect it. If you are using a plant-friendly container, you could skip this step.

Caring for your Mini Christmas Trees

Avoid placing your Mini Christmas Tree near any heat source that will cause it to dry out quickly. Keep it in a cooler well lit area and water every two or three days. Be careful not to let the Rosemary plants dry out.

Let’s get started.

  • 1 Painters Tape


  • 1 Rosemary Mini Tree
  • 1 Cypress Mini Tree
  • 1 Lemon Cypress Mini Tree
  • 1 Tissue Paper-Paper bags
  • 1 Plastic
  • 1 Moss
  • 1 Mini Christmas lights
  • 1 Mini Ornaments
  • 1 Rocks


  • Line your basket with plastic, then using painters tape, secure the liner to the basket.
  • Add your rocks for drainage and in my case it flattened the bowl so the plants didn't tip over.
  • Next add tissue paper balled up to "support or hold" the plants where you want them.
  • Continue adding all of your plants. Once placement looks good to you add the moss to cover the plant pots and tissue paper.
  • Time for String lights. Make sure to check the batteries- I have mine on a timer, and hide the battery box under the moss.
  • Add ornaments or other embellishments. Stand back and admire!


I like leaving this with simple Christmas lights until after Thanksgiving and then add the more “Christmasy” details later making this a perfect transitional  decor piece for both holidays.
