How To Turn An Aldi Christmas Tree Into Elegant Christmas Decor

December 24, 2021

I'm so excited to share how I took an inexpensive Aldi tabletop Christmas tree and turned it into high end, elegant Christmas decor.

And it all started with a few chinoiserie ginger jars . . . . .

You may have seen my Blue, White and Gold Chinoiserie Christmas Tree. It led me to decorate my entire living room in a more elegant style than I'm used to. It's definitely been challenging, but I can say that overall I'm happy with the end result.

One of my favorite additions to the living room Christmas decor this year is an inexpensive ($7.99) pre-lit Aldi Merry Moments tabletop Christmas tree I got last year. It's super plain but for the flocking and the pre-lit lights. And in keeping with my love of chinoiserie I knew exactly what to do with it.

Can you believe this is the same basic tree? With just a few tweaks I changed it into some truly elegant Christmas decor.

First I stuffed the chinoiserie jar with crumpled up newspaper.

Then I topped it all off with some batting (or stuffing) to resemble snow to help secure the tree in the jar.

I plopped the tree into the jar and taped the fairy light battery pack onto the back with painter's tape, then added a few lamb's ear and white berry picks for fullness.

I then swathed it in a gorgeous blue and gold wired ribbon, just like the ribbon on my 7 foot Montreal Fir Christmas tree.

I then placed it on the living room mantel along with some other equally beautiful chinoiserie ginger jars for effect. No ornaments were even necessary!

Overall I was thrilled with the final outcome. Who would have thought that an Aldi $7.99 tabletop Christmas tree could ever look this good?

While it helped to have the chinoiserie pieces on hand to add a bit of style, I'm sure you can dress up a similar inexpensive tree with any type of unusual container. And by unusual I mean unique. Maybe it's an old rusted olive bucket. Or a whiskey barrel planter. Or a mini Christmas tree collar.

No matter what you choose it's all good. Whatever works for you and your inexpensive mini tree. I'm just happy that I found an easy,  elegant way to display mine.

  Well, that's it for today, friends!
