tutorial: rosette christmas tree

Disclaimer: We have a small studio apartment and making a tree that stands on the ground is not exactly possible. And so I made a DIY tiny tree to match our tiny apartment.

To make this DIY rosette Christmas tree, you will need:

*matches (I apologize for the typo)



Sounds easy from these steps but making this DIY rosette Christmas tree takes time. After a while, staring at a candle flame can make you go crazy. I suggest giving yourself a couple of weeks to make this. Adding a pretty star or an angel on top will also be great for that added holiday feel.

I know, I know, it doesn’t look much from the photos but this DIY Christmas tree is pretty in person. I’d invite all of you to my place if I could to check it out. This tree can make you smile, really.

see? tiny!


1. Be careful touching the singed edge of your rosettes. Unless you’re Bobby Flay, the singed satin will hurt your pretty little fingers. (Segue: wouldn’t it be cool to watch a craft-related show with Bobby Flay, though?)

2. Use different colored rosettes!

3. A scented candle is ideal for this project. Inhaling fabric fumes is no fun, trust me.

  3. Girl, you are SOOOOOO creative!!! I love that! It’s absolutely beautiful! That would actually make beautiful centre pieces for a wedding! I may just have to consider that for mine…. it could be made in different shapes right? Instead of a cone? Like say… a ball? But then… if the satin is light colored, would it appear burnt? so many questions! hahaha!

  4. I LOVE this! I’ve made a few things with the singed petals on flowers and just love that look. I hope I have time to make it this holiday season! Thanks for sharing. It looks beautiful!

  5. How fantastic! I love how this looks – so beautiful.
    I thought it was a styrofoam cone with the satin circles pinned in place with gold balled sewing pins. I would say that might make the process go a little faster.. :)

  10. I LOVE this and am going to attempt it for a Christmas brunch I’m hosting. About how many of the rosettes did you wind up using to cover the tree? Thanks!

  11. Hi! What a gorgeous tree! I know this post is a couple years old, but it’s that time of the year again, and I’ve included your beautiful tree in my blog post about DIY Christmas tree ideas, with a link back to this post, so I just wanted to let you know. And to thank you for such a beautiful Christmas craft idea. I will be making one for myself once it gets a bit closer to December.
