is one of my family’s favorite holidays and we go all out with holiday food, crafts, and decorations.
My personal favorite thing is setting up our beautiful tree. My favorite scent is pine, and my favorite color is green, so it’s only natural that I would love Christmas trees!
Here are a few of the Christmas tree themed food and craft ideas I’m inspired by this season: Pinecone Christmas Trees, Fingerprint Christmas Tree, Handprint Christmas Tree, Christmas Tree Ornament, Cupcake Liner Christmas Tree Ornament, Paper Christmas Tree Craft, Coffee Filter Christmas Trees, Christmas Tree Pull Apart Bread, Strawberry Christmas Tree Brownie Bites, Pasta Christmas Tree, Fruit Christmas Tree, Snap Pea Christmas Tree, and a Festive Cheddar Christmas Tree!
Ahhh…it is Christmas tree heaven!

1. Pinecone Christmas Trees
From Crafters Delight
Make sure you take a hike outside and scavenge for some pinecones at the beginning of winter so you can create a few of these adorable pine cone Christmas trees for the holidays!

The whole things is snuggly nestled into a mini flower pot and topped with a festive silver star!
2. Fingerprint Christmas Tree
From Crafty Morning
If you are looking for a cheap and kid-friendly craft for Christmas, this one is absolutely perfect. All you need are some washable paints and your little ones’ fingers. Have your kids dip their pointer fingers into different color paints and design a Christmas tree made out of their fingerprints. Even the red star on top is drawn using a finger. It’s a very cute art project for crafters on a budget.

This festive keepsake project is easy to recreate and looks beautiful hung up on the walls or fridge around Christmas time!
