Creating a Pampas Christmas Tree: A Unique and Stylish Holiday DIY

DIY Faux Pampas Grass Christmas  Tree


When it comes to Christmas tree decorations, most of us envision shiny ornaments, twinkling lights, and tinsel. But if you're looking for a unique and stylish alternative this holiday season, why not try making a Pampas Christmas tree? Pampas grass, known for its elegant and feather-like plumes, can bring a touch of natural beauty to your holiday decor. In this blog, we'll guide you through the steps of creating your very own Pampas Christmas tree.

Materials You'll Need:

  1. A Christmas tree form (real or artificial)
  2. Pampas grass plumes (you can use faux pampas grass for longevity)
  3. Floral wire or hot glue gun
  4. Ribbon, ornaments, or any additional decorations of your choice
  5. Pruning shears or scissors
  6. Tree topper (optional)

Step 1: Prepare Your Tree

  • Choose your Christmas tree form. You can use an artificial tree, which works well for this project, or go for a real tree if you prefer the natural scent.

  • Set up your tree in your desired location, ensuring it's secure and stable.

Step 2: Trim the Pampas Grass

  • If you're using real pampas grass, trim the plumes to your preferred length. A variety of heights can create a more dynamic look.

  • If you're using faux pampas grass, make sure they're clean and in good condition. You won't need to trim these, so they're ready to use.

Step 3: Attach the Pampas Plumes

  • Starting at the top of the tree, use floral wire or a hot glue gun to attach the pampas grass plumes. Secure them to the branches while following the tree's natural shape.

  • Layer the plumes from the top down to the bottom of the tree, ensuring you cover the entire surface evenly. You can mix in some larger and smaller plumes for a more textured appearance.

Step 4: Add Decorations

  • Once the pampas grass is in place, it's time to add your favorite holiday decorations. You can use ribbon, ornaments, lights, or any other items that complement your theme.

  • Consider using a color scheme that harmonizes with the neutral tones of the pampas grass, like gold, silver, or soft pastels.

Step 5: Tree Topper

  • For a finishing touch, you can add a tree topper. A simple star, angel, or even a large pampas grass plume can work beautifully.

Step 6: Final Adjustments

  • Step back and assess your Pampas Christmas tree. Make any necessary adjustments to ensure it looks balanced and full.


Creating a Pampas Christmas tree is not only a unique and stylish alternative to traditional holiday decor but also an environmentally friendly option. The neutral and natural tones of pampas grass can bring a touch of elegance to your home during the holiday season. Try different color schemes and ornament combinations to make it your own, and don't forget to capture and share your creation on social media. Your friends and family are sure to be inspired by your DIY holiday masterpiece!
