Charlie Brown may have the most recognizable Christmas tree ever. His gloomy little tree somehow brings joy to everyone that has ever sat and watched his movies during the holidays. The crafty, 8 year old version of myself thought my house needed a DIY Charlie Brown Christmas tree to bring back the simple things about the holidays.
I love it when working on one project leads to another great idea and that is exactly how this came about. My plan was to cut some wood slices from a log to use as ornaments, but one was just too thick. I thought it looked more like a cute base for a tiny tree. I was totally right 😉
Let’s take a look at how to make your own DIY Charlie Brown Christmas tree decoration.
- Evergreen Branch
- 2″ Wood Slice
- If you don’t have any wood to use, you can find wood slices on Amazon click here
- Hot Glue Gun
- Tiny Red Ornament (optional)

Gather your materials. I cut the branch off a tree in my yard and cut the wood slice from a log in my firewood pile.
Find a drill bit that looks similar to the size of your evergreen branch and use it to drill a hole in the center of the wood circle.
Add some hot glue to the hole you drilled.
Stick the end of the branch into the wood slice and that’s it!
The branch I chose even has one lonely pinecone hanging just like Charlie had that one red ornament. You could buy a tiny red ornament and hang that for a more Charlie-esque tree.
Now I just need Snoopy.
These would make great table decorations for your holiday table. I would just choose some shorter branches so you can see over them.
Because there is no real way to water this “tree” it will dry out, but spritzing it with water occasionally will help it last a tiny bit longer.
