Your DIY coffee pod Christmas tree will bring a jolt of Christmas joy to your home coffee station this holiday season! As shown above, it’s both practical and decorative, you may decide to keep it out all winter long. Indeed, let the Christmas crafting begin!
Coffee Pod Christmas Tree Tools
- pen or pencil
- mat knife
- cellophane tape
- glue gun & glue sticks
- rubber band
- 4 paper-towel cardboard rolls
- approximately 2 1/2-ft. length of aluminum foil 12 inches wide from a regular-sized roll
- glitter cardstock in gold & brass shades or colors of your choice
- Bronner’s chrome tree with star 6 ornament display stand
Coffee Pod Christmas Tree Instructions
- First, use the pen and ruler to measure and mark each cardboard roll at 2 1/8-inch intervals. To this end, you will need 18 segments total.
- Second, place a rubber band at the mark to establish an even cutting line around the roll.
- Third, use the mat knife to cut each 2 1/8-inch segment, moving the rubber band from one mark to the next. At any rate, trim any rough edges with scissors.
- Fourth, cut the aluminum foil into 3-inch by 6-inch strips. In short, you will need 18 strips total.
- Fifth, wrap each cardboard segment with a strip of aluminum foil, securing each end with tape.
- Next, glue five segments to a central sixth segment, using a wide line of hot glue and spacing evenly between segments. (As a result, the final three pieces will look a bit like flowers.)
- Then insert each final piece into one of the six circles on Bronner’s Chrome Tree with Star 6 Ornament Display Stand.
- Finally, fill three of six openings in each circle with a coffee pod. At this point, cut circular covers for the other openings from gilded, glittered cardstock and glue them in place. Repeat on the opposite side of the tree. As a result, your double-sided coffee pod Christmas tree can be displayed and accessed from both sides.
- Last of all, hang three ornaments of your choice from the open circles. Surely, you’ll want to be sure to include a couple of coffee-themed ornaments like Bronner’s Crazy for Coffee Glass Ornament and Coffee Pot Glass Ornament. In addition, I loved the pop of red and the gold glitter stripes this glass ornament, made in Romania, brought to the coffee pod Christmas tree.
Furthermore, if you prefer tea over coffee, you you can fill each open segment with a tea bag. Another option is to fill some open segments with coffee creamer cups. Indeed, you can feel free to mix and match!
In fact, you can make orange clove pomanders to hang in place of the ornaments if you wish. In this case, they will bring a bright, traditional Christmas scent to your coffee station and home.

- 3 to 6 oranges
- large bottle of whole cloves

- Gorilla glue
Orange Clove Pomander Instructions for Coffee Pod Christmas Tree
- First, wash and dry the oranges so any potential wax residue is removed.
- Second, if you are making a detailed pattern with the cloves, you may wish to score the lines into the rind or the orange with a paring knife.
- Next, using a round toothpick, poke a hole in the orange in the spot in which you wish to place a clove. Straightaway, stick it into place.
- Finally, continue until all the cloves you wish to put in the orange are in place.
