Want to add a natural touch to your Christmas decor? Here’s how to make a moss Christmas tree!
I love making tabletop Christmas trees. They are fun by themselves, on a mantel, or with a little holiday village.
This year, I’ve been loving green, natural elements. Moss is an easy way to bring green, natural texture into your decor.

So, this year I decided to make a set of moss Christmas trees! They were super simple to make – thanks to sheet moss – and look really beautiful clustered together.
How to make a moss Christmas tree
Moss Christmas trees are really easy to make – make a few at once for a dramatic effect!
Steps to make a DIY moss tree:
STEP 1: Trace your cone
The easiest way to cut this out right the first time is to make a template! Roll your cone on paper and trace along it with a pencil. Cut out the template and wrap it around your cone to ensure it fits.
STEP 2: Trace template onto moss
Place template on the back side of the sheet moss and trace with a sharpie.
STEP 3: Cut moss
Use scissors to cut the moss along the traced line.
STEP 4: Glue moss to cone
If there is a paper backing, remove it. Use hot glue to attach along edges and stripes along the middle to the cone directly.
STEP 5: Add a topper
You will notice that the very top of the cone is bare. Cut a small circle from your scrap moss and glue in place.
OPTIONAL: Add decorations
You can glue or stick on ribbon, rope, or small ornaments if you want to add a special touch to your trees!
