Unicorn Christmas trees are one of the most adorable trends this season—here’s how you can create one

Unicorn Christmas trees are the trendiest and most glamorous way to express your holiday cheer. Lucky for all of us, achieving this magical theme is pretty simple.

First, you need to consider your color palette. Yes, you could use a traditional Christmas fir for this look, but the best way to achieve an Instagram-worthy unicorn Christmas tree is by turning to artificial options. Instagram user @cute_stuff_online opted for pure white and the results are magnificent.


Or consider trees in gold, silver or pink, and don’t be afraid to embrace some metallic shine. By starting with a light pink tree as seen below, you can up the shine factor by wrapping it with snow-white garland and then sprinkling silver tinsel on top of it.

Of course, you can choose any color palette that best suits your personal style. There are so many options for unicorn-worthy Christmas trees, including yellow, teal and purple! This 3-foot pink tree from Wayfair is $36.99.


Next, you need a unicorn tree topper. You can either craft your own or buy one pre-made. Etsy store BellaBowtiqueDesigns offers a unicorn topper that will suit a Christmas tree, a birthday cake or even just your mantle.

And for a really magical touch, you need big unicorn eyelashes to rest just beneath your tree topper! Instagrammer @lovepinklucy shows us that nothing completes a Christmas unicorn tree quite like long, luxurious lashes.


You can cut lashes out of construction paper or felt, or buy them premade. Black is a common choice, but you can also go for gold, too, like these from Etsy seller WholesaleDeZigns:

These unicorn trees look even more magical in a darkened room, as you can see in the photo below, shared on Instagram by the account Unicorn Lover:


This multi-colored tree, shared by Instagrammer justjulz_24 is the perfect base for building a unicorn tree:


The great thing about a unicorn Christmas tree is that it works for larger trees, but it’s also a really clever way to make smaller Christmas trees really pop. Hence, it can be the perfect choice for smaller spaces like offices, dorm rooms or apartments.

Are you feeling inspired to make your own unicorn tree?
