A boho Christmas tree brings such lovely, natural vibes to a space! Try some of these ideas, DIYs, and easy crafts to add to your boho Christmas decor.
Each year, I participate in a local charity event with other designers and artists. We each design, decorate, and donate a tree (sponsored by a local business) to be auctioned to the community.
The auction benefits Community Hospice, an organization that helps individuals and families who are facing health crises or end-of-life journeys.

What Is Boho Style?
The term “boho” is actually a shortened version of the word Bohemian, which was a term coined to name the community of carefree and artistic creatives in 19th century Paris. (If you’re thinking of Moulin Rouge right now, you would be generally correct.)
But essentially, the spirit of “boho” decor is a relaxed, laid back take on a space. Incorporating natural textures and colors. Bringing in pieces from far-off travel and incorporating them into your home.
Boho decor is a way to marry pieces from various cultures and time periods.
As the modern boho movement has become more trendy in recent years, it’s moved into a very specific look — neutral colors, natural elements like wood, rattan, and fiber arts, and a very relaxed aesthetic.
Why a Boho Christmas Tree?
While I don’t incorporate much of the modern boho vibe in my own space, I happen to think it looks lovely on a Christmas tree!
The natural elements bring so much texture to the holiday decor, and the boho ornaments look magical tucked into the branches.
Twinkly lights peek through macrame, wooden beads, and woven pieces to add some extra magic.
Ideas for a Boho Christmas Tree
For this tree, I handmade five different styles of ornaments and garlands. They all came together with some standard glass ornaments to create a unique and chic tree.
Click through on each link for a full tutorial on how to make the individual ornaments
Snow-Covered Ornaments. These clear glass balls were filled with natural elements like wheat stalks, and covered with sparkly faux snow to bring the outdoors in.
Tassel Ornaments. It doesn’t get simpler than these unique tassel ornaments, and they add so much texture to a boho Christmas tree.
Wood Bead Ornaments. I love these easy wood bead ornaments, and they look great strung together as a garland as well.
Macrame Christmas Trees. Everyone’s favorite DIY ornament on the boho tree! This simple tree ornament is a perfect introduction to macrame knots.
Pom Pom Ornaments. Big, fluffy pom poms in neutral colors added a whimsical touch to top it all off.
Extra Accents around the tree
It’s fun to carry a theme throughout your holiday decor, and I have a few other projects to help you do just that with your boho Christmas tree!
Try creating this fluffy ottoman – it’s a statement piece that’s easy to make using a blanket and some throw pillows or batting.
Create a bowl of pretty pine cone fire starters. They’re not just lovely to look at but they make it easy to light a fire in the fireplace.
If you don’t have a tree stand or skirt, try putting your tree into a wicker or rattan basket for an added boho touch.
