13 Christmas Tree Themed Crafts and Food

By  | 

Christmas is one of my family’s favorite holidays and we go all out with holiday food, crafts, and decorations.

My personal favorite thing is setting up our beautiful tree. My favorite scent is pine, and my favorite color is green, so it’s only natural that I would love Christmas trees!

Here are a few of the Christmas tree themed food and craft ideas I’m inspired by this season: Pinecone Christmas Trees, Fingerprint Christmas Tree, Handprint Christmas Tree, Christmas Tree Ornament, Cupcake Liner Christmas Tree Ornament, Paper Christmas Tree Craft, Coffee Filter Christmas Trees, Christmas Tree Pull Apart Bread, Strawberry Christmas Tree Brownie Bites, Pasta Christmas Tree, Fruit Christmas Tree, Snap Pea Christmas Tree, and a Festive Cheddar Christmas Tree!

Ahhh…it is Christmas tree heaven!
