Nativity Themed Christmas Tree with DIY Ornaments

A few years ago, I made a bunch of different Nativity themed ornaments. I had a small tree that I put them on. Each year, I've continued to add to the collection and now I have enough to fill my big tree.
I added sparkly red bows and poinsettias, red ribbon and bulbs and all my nativity ornaments. I love the contrast of the vibrant red with the rustic nature of many of the nativity ornaments.

Nativity Themed Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree with Nativity Ornaments

The star tree topper I made this year with some sticks. I don't have a tutorial, but I suggest starting with 5 sticks that are the same length and diameter. {I cut mine from branches from the yard.} Wrap twine around the ends and secure with hot glue. Wrap at the intersecting points as well.

I found the bows and ribbon at Joann last year. I've seen the bows again this year, but I've been meaning to look for the ribbon - I feel like it needs more ribbon.

The red bulbs come in 8 packs at Walmart - there are 4 shiny and 4 matte bulbs. I got three packs. I also got the sparkly poinsettia flowers there.

The silver round ornaments with the names of Christ on them are from Deseret Book.

The clear glass bulbs with the silhouette of the nativity were a gift that we gave the young women in our church several years ago. There were a bunch of extras that I snagged.

  2. Your tree with all the handmade ornaments is gorgeous. I remember seeing the angel ornaments and the sheep ornaments before and I absolutely love them. Pinning they are wonderful.
