Make these simple DIY farmhouse tabletop trees for a budget-friendly addition to your holiday home decor.
These DIY farmhouse tabletop trees are so easy to make, and no one will ever know they are made from inexpensive foam board.
Who else feel like the second the calendar turns to November 1st, the game is ON! Especially after the crazy year we’ve had, I’m so ready for all things happy and festive.
I definitely get my love of Christmas decorating from my mom. Probably one of my most favorite childhood memories of her, was decorating the tree with boxes and boxes of tinsel.

By the time we were done, you couldn’t see the tree. I’m secretly excited that tinsel is making a comeback! In fact, get ready to see a bead and tinsel garland on my Christmas tree this year!
If you are a regular visitor here, you know I love farmhouse style, including all things buffalo check and little red trucks.
For today’s project, I wanted to make some farmhouse tabletop trees to include in my covered front porch holiday decor.
How To Make Pretty DIY Farmhouse Tabletop Trees
- Foam Board – Dollar Tree
- Bamboo Skewars – Dollar Tree
- Hot Glue Gun – this cordless one is my favorite!
- Wood Beads
- Decorative paper – I used little red cars and buffalo check wrapping paper.
- Small Wood Slice – I found mine at Dollar Tree
I spotted this buffalo check wrapping paper at Dollar Tree and quickly scooped it up, along with some bamboo skewars.
I also picked up this adorable 12×12 decorative paper at the craft store.
Use the multi-tool to place a hole in the center of the wood slice.
Add wood beads to the bamboo skewar and secure into the wood slice with hot glue.
Cut the decorative paper into a 6″x12″ triangular piece to look like a tree.
Use the cut paper as a template and cut two pieces of the foam board to the same size.
Add mod podge to the foam board using a foam brush.
Place the paper on top of the foam board and smooth it out.
Use the hot glue gun to secure it to the skewar.
Place the second piece of covered foam board to the back of the tree to cover the skewar.
Repeat the process with the buffalo check paper and decorate with your beautiful farmhouse trees!
