Move over, tinsel and bulbs, flowers are coming through—and we're not just talking about poinsettias. Lately, people have been opting for flowers instead of traditional Christmas tree embellishments, and we're totally into it. Flowers bring life and vibrant color to your home in a way that ornaments can't. Whether you choose real or artificial flowers, they're sure to make a splash on your tree this year. Check out our favorite DIY floral Christmas tree designs.

Paper Petals

This insanely pretty tree from Rifle Paper Co. is what Christmas dreams are made of. We're seriously crushing on the gorgeous blooms—all made out of paper and inspired by Rifle's gorgeous floral gift wrap. We love how the paper blooms pop on the otherwise bare tree. This is one Christmas decorating look we're totally going to recreate this season.

Twist on Traditional

A swirl of flowers twisting around this decorated Christmas tree has us wishing we could wrap up in a blanket and lay on the couch all day long. These bright colors bring cheer inside during the chilly holiday season. Twinkly lights add a touch of magic and a hot pink carnation is the perfect final pop of color.

Subtle Stunner

This tree is for the skeptic of the floral tree trend. It maintains elements of the traditional Christmas tree—glitter bulbs, exposed pine needles, and a golden star tree topper—while incorporating subtle modern touches—soft flowers and white branchesrevamping the classic Christmas tree.

A Very Glittery Christmas

Glitter overload? Never! We're drooling over this pink, silver and gold glitter Christmas tree. Snow-dusted pine needles are the perfect backdrop for white hydrangeas and all things glitter—owls, butterflies, presents—yes, please!

A Touch of Nature

This Christmas tree is dressed to the nines, and we can't get enough of it. Light pink peonies and giant golden poinsettias aren't the only natural element in this tree—pine cones and fake deer antlers add a rustic cabin feel that we adore. A banner reading "Merry Christmas" strung across the middle of the tree is a warm finishing touch.

Sunflower Trees

Sunflower Christmas trees are one of this year's hottest holiday trends, and we've already started seeing them all over Instagram. Searches for these trees are up 66%, according to Pinterest’s 2019 holiday report, and we can't wait to start making our own. We've even rounded up our favorite sunflower Christmas trees to inspire you. A DIY galvanized tree collar is the perfect way to complete this look.
