Pink Tabletop Christmas Tree DIY
A tabletop Christmas tree is the perfect DIY for a coffee table, a kitchen counter, a sideboard, and down the center of a table. Enjoy!
You can make these tabletop Christmas trees in any color, I made mine in pink but am also going to make them in copper, green, pomegranate red, the options are endless!
I cannot believe these Pink Tabletop Christmas Trees were made out of cardboard cones. All I did was add some snowflake clay molds, paint them pink and white, and add glitter. Don’t they look amazing?

I can’t even begin to tell you how long I have waited to set a pink Christmas table. I love Christmas tabletop trees and thought they might make the perfect centerpiece for a table. So I pulled out my Iron Orchid Design Molds and made these Pink Snowflake Trees.
As you can see in the closeup photo, the tree has lots of different snowflake clay molds on it! I used a couple of shades of pink paint to create some depth and I love how the trees look with the glitter.
Setting a Pink Christmas Table
I set this table with one of my favorite vintage tablecloths, lots of pink glassware, napkins, pink plates, and Christmas ornaments. Fortunately, I already owned everything you see in the photo.
Except for the pink trees of course.
How to Make a Pink Table Top Christmas Tree
Here is what you need to make these pink snowflake tabletop trees. The Iron Orchid Designs Snowflake Mould (this is last years mould so you need to find a retailer that has it in stock). Two blocks of air dry clay, Titebond Quick and Thick glue, three paper mache cones, white acrylic paint, pink acrylic paint, paint brush, multi-purpose adhesive, white glitter.

Step-By-Step DIY Instructions
- one – If you want to adjust the height of your trees, just draw a line on the bottom and cut off however much you want to make it shorter. Some cones have bases (which I don’t suggest that you cut.) Others have an open bottom and cut easily. I actually used both types.
- two – Place the clay in the moulds and use a straight edge across the top to remove the exces clay.
- three – Because the snowflakes are quite detailed, I highly suggest you put the moulds in the freezer. If you put them in for about 20 minutes they will pop out of the mould so easily! (If you don’t put them in the freezer it will be hard to remove the clay.) Trust me, I know!
- four – Let the snowflakes thaw out for a bit (about ten minutes).
- five – Gluethe snowflake moulds to the cones, holding them for about twenty seconds to adhere and not slip.
- six – I placed the larger moulds on the bottom and smaller ones toward the top.
- seven – While the glue on the trees is not quite dry, paint them with the desired color. I started with a darker pink because wanted to create some depth. Let the paint dry.
- eight – Add a lighter color on top. I used a white wash. You can see the watered down paint running down the sides of the tree. Use a brush to spread the wash on the outside of the tree.
- nine – Let the trees dry completely. Spray with the adhesive and sprinkle with the glue.
I decided to put the trees down the center of the table and I didn’t even think to use flowers which is amazing. I never do that!

There are so many different clay molds you can use for these trees. I considered using stars, roses, leaves, and poinsettias! How fun is that!
These trees were easy and fun to make! Below is everything you need to set a pretty pink Christmas table and make these trees!
