Feather Tree

How it's made: A Little Victorian Table Top Christmas Tree

Make a tiny Christmas tree for your dollhouse in the Victorian style. This little christmas tree is in the English Victorian style, made popular by Queen Victoria in 1848.


Feather Christmas trees were first created in Germany in the 1880s or 1890s and are regarded as one of the first types of artificial Christmas trees. These first artificial trees were, in part, a response to growing environmental concerns in the late 19th century concerning deforestation associated with the harvest of Christmas trees in Germany. The tradition of feather Christmas trees was brought to the United States by German immigrants.
