Having a Coastal Christmas Tree is a fun way to bring a love of all things coastal into the holidays. From DIY ornaments to some collected favorites, my tabletop coastal tree goes well with lots of my coastal decor.
Welcome back to year 6 of our Festive Christmas Event where we team up with a bunch of talented blogging friends to bring you a plethora of creative ways to celebrate your holiday season.
We will be baking some cookie recipes for you, sharing some party games, making some handmade gifts, doing some ornament crafting, and sharing our Christmas movies family fun. There will be breakfast recipes and as always our decorated Christmas Trees which is always a fun tour of homes.

I’m not ready to bring out our large trees yet, but adding a little coastal Christmas to our sun room now is a fun way to spread a little holiday cheer.
Coastal Christmas Tree Decor
For my coastal tree, I’m using a four foot tree that I’ve placed on a table. I was happy to find these trees on sale at Michaels for 60% off, making this one only $19.99!
I’ve decorated it with a combination of diy ornaments and some purchased ones. This starfish is one of my favorites. You can find the tutorial for making it in my Starfish Ornaments post.
Using dollar store mini pails and adding a felt seahorse from my craft stash was a quick and easy way to give the pails a beach sand pail look.
This beaded wreath ornament was made using dollar store supplies. I’ll be sharing a quick tutorial on how to make them soon.
Filling clear ornaments with white sand and beads adds to the coastal look.
I used a sequin strip to wrap around the ornament.
As with any tree, using floral sprigs can work great as filler. I picked up some at Michaels and some at Dollar Tree.
I also used some drift wood pieces as filler.
This tree that has the look of sand is one that I found on clearance after the holidays last year at Big Lots. It wasn’t an ornament, but I changed that by adding a ribbon using hot glue.
The beach chair was another clearance item I found and added a ribbon to.
The last item I added to the tree was a coastal throw as a wrap for the base.
The silver ornament garland was another Dollar Tree find. I used three strands of it for this 4″ tree. I topped the tree with a cream colored clip on poinsettia. I decided a poinsettia reminds me of a starfish, kinda – if I stretch my imagination a little. I’m looking for something more beachy to go on top or I’ll make a bow topper.
