Chopstick and Bead Christmas Tree - finished treeThis is a fun and quick way to make a little decorative Christmas tree, using stuff you might have saved in your house. I am a wooden chopstick hoarder. I find them so useful for crafts and projects. Here, I decided to rubber band them together to make this tree so I could use them again in the future! (No glue necessary!) Some Mardi Gras beads came in handy for the decorations, but you can use anything to adorn your baby tree.


Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 1 tree


  • 12 chopsticks (at least)
  • 3 rubber bands
  • 1 small ball (ping pong size or so)
  • 2 beaded necklaces
  • decorative toppers (I used a foil candy cup and plastic holly)
Chopstick and Bead Christmas Tree - supplies


  1. Bunch all the chopsticks together and tie the end with a rubber band.
  2. Chopstick and Bead Christmas Tree - secure one end of the chopsticks with a rubber band
  3. Spread the chopsticks out so they are spaced out evenly, making a cone shape. Push the small ball in to keep the shape of the cone.
  4. Chopstick and Bead Christmas Tree - spread the sticks out evenly to create a cone and push the ball down at the top
  5. Tie another rubber band a little lower than the midsection of the cone.
  6. Chopstick and Bead Christmas Tree - second rubber band

  7. Stand the cone up and adjust any chopsticks if necessary.
  8. Chopstick and Bead Christmas Tree - stand the cone up and adjust the chopsticks as needed
  9. Wrap the tree with some beads, then secure the top with a rubber band.
  10. Chopstick and Bead Christmas Tree - wrap with beads and secure the top with another rubber band
  11. String some more beads on top. Add any decorative bits on top to hide the rubber band and bare chopstick ends. This is where I used the foil cup and faux holly.
  12. Chopstick and Bead Christmas Tree - add more beads and finally other decorations to cover the rubber band and bare chop stick ends
