Easy Geometric Christmas Tree Wall Art

decor & DIYholidays

I am often a little late to the party when it comes to trends. I feel like I was way behind on the whole chalkboard thing, and I still think chevron is really cool {Is it? Am I totally behind the times?} But I feel like I may still be ok when it comes to the trend of geometric patterns. I love the look of this type of DIY, so I decided to give it a holiday twist with this Easy Geometric Christmas Wall Art.

Not only is this geometric and awesome, but it also involves another one of my favorite things: stitching on canvas. I did this before, with my Embroidered Children's Art, and I have been trying to figure out another way to do it.

And now I have. This is super easy, and I promise you, you can do this. Even if you've never sewn a stitch in your life, you can do this.

Use a store-bought canvas and a few simple stitches to make this trendy Geometric Christmas Tree Wall Art. Even if you've never sewn a stitch in your life, you can make this!

Supplies for Christmas Tree Wall Art

  • Canvas {make sure to get one that doesn't have wood pieces across the back -- I got mine at Michael's.}
  • Large needle
  • Green embroidery thread
  • Gold embroidery thread

Use a store-bought canvas and a few simple stitches to make this trendy Geometric Christmas Tree Wall Art. Even if you've never sewn a stitch in your life, you can make this!

To start, you'll need a Christmas tree outline. I just folded a piece of paper in half lengthwise, drew half a tree along the fold, and then cut it out. You could always freehand it or find a picture online if you'd prefer. Make sure that the picture fits inside the wood frame of the canvas so that you can get your needle through. Tape it to the canvas and use your needle to poke holes all around the outline, about 1/2" - 3/4" apart.

Now just stitch all around your outline, using 3 strands of your green embroidery floss. {Embroidery floss is actually 6 strands twisted together, so you'll need to separate it in half before threading your needle. Tie a knot in the end of your thread, and bring it through from the back. You are going to do a simple back stitch, which you can see in this post.

Once the outline is done, you can start the fun part: the geometric shapes inside. There is no rhyme or reason for these, just wing it. Fill in your whole tree with random stitches, and then start on the star.

Again, if you're feeling extra crafty, you can wing the outline, but I used one I found online. Follow the same steps as above to outline it and then fill it in with random geometric stitches.

That's all there is to it! A fun geometric Christmas tree that you can keep for yourself or give as a gift!

You could make this in any shape you want -- or even do a word, like "Joy" or "Peace." The possibilities are endless!

What Christmas design would you make with this technique?

Hi, I’m Jenn. I’m a freelance writer and editor who lives in central Pennsylvania with my husband and three boys. Yeah. That’s a lot of testosterone in one house. I love decorating, DIYing, crafting, baking, and cooking, and I’m constantly scouring everything I see for inspiration. My ideas can come from anywhere: Pinterest, books, magazines, stores, TV shows, websites, other blogs, other people’s homes, nature. You name it, and I’ve gotten an idea from it. {Literally. I selected the color scheme for our family room from a pocket pack of tissues. Totally not making that up.} I hope to teach others that, if you really pay attention to the world around you, you can get inspiration from anything! I love to hear from readers, so be sure to leave me a comment! Or, if you’d prefer to email me, you can do that too — just visit my contact form. Thanks for stopping by!
