How to Create Rustic Christmas Dining Table Décor

Now that my tree and mantle are decorated, (see How to Decorate a Disney’s Frozen Christmas tree the Easy Way and How to Create a Rustic Glam Christmas Mantle if you missed them) the last Christmas décor  project left was my dining room table. Woohoo 🙂 If you want to know how I achieved the Rustic Christmas Dining Table décor in the photo above as well as product references continue reading.

How to Create Rustic Christmas Dining Table Décor




My favorite part of the table is my DIY Christmas Tabletop Ornament Trees using Knitting Needles. They were super easy to make and inexpensive. All you need is a knitting needle, small/medium/large ball ornaments, ornament hooks, and an ornament topper. For detailed step by step instructions on how to make your own Christmas Tabletop Ornament Tree using a Knitting Needle see Diane's tutorial over at "In My Own Style"

The table runner is a [walmart search burlap runner], and I used large alphabet stencils to inscribe a monogram at each end with a black sharpie pen.

I used regular pine cones, painted them using a small brush with mod podge glue, and rolled them in gold glitter.


The wooden cake stand to hold the white deer figurine and miniature trees was created by gluing a round-shaped wooden plaque from Michael’s to a wooden candle stick holder using gorilla wood glue.




I purchased the white deer figurine from Target, and the snow dusted miniature sisal trees from Michael's.




That's my DIY Christmas table décor for this year. I'd love to see your Christmas tables. Feel free to share links to pictures of your tables in the comments. 🙂



Hope you all are having fun decorating for Christmas!
