This DIY Hot Wheels Christmas Tree is perfect for boys and girls who love cars! In this post, you’ll find links and a full tutorial on how to turn Hot Wheels cars into the cutest Christmas tree ornaments.
If you’ve read some of my older posts, you know my son is obsessed with cars. I imagine most little boys his age are so, with Christmas right around the corner, I decided to make my little guy this DIY Hot Wheels Christmas Tree.
If you’re feeling adventurous, this is a fun project to do with your kids plus when it’s complete they’ll be so excited to see their handy work!
I first got the idea for this tree when my son was about 3 years old. He was so into cars and monster trucks that we had hundreds of cars all over the house. I kept thinking there’s got to be something cool I can do with all the extra cars that he doesn’t really play with.
When I decided to combine his love of cars and Christmas he was too young to help with all the gluing and sharp endings. If your kids are older they might really love getting to help create this Hot Wheels Christmas Tree.
You can find most of the materials for this Hot Wheels Christmas Tree on Amazon. It was a little tricky at first but eventually, I figured out how to turn some of my son’s Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars into ornaments. You can do as many as you like, but I just bought 24 ornament caps on Amazon and then hot-glued them to his old cars.

Hot Wheels Christmas Tree
1 Mini Monster Truck (for tree topper)
White Foam Board (get from the Dollar Tree)
Hot Wheels Christmas Tree Directions:
Using yellow or white acrylic paint, paint lines down a 4-5′ strand of black ribbon to look like a road.
Attach ornament caps to about 24 Hot Wheels cars using hot glue. Hook each car.
Peel traffic sign stickers and attach them to the white foam board.
Next, cut out each traffic sign. I used the foam board is used to give the traffic sign stickers more support. Glue hooks to the back of each sticker. I used about 30 stickers.
Wrap your Christmas tree with lights and road ribbon. Next, hang your Hot Wheels Car and traffic sign ornaments.
Finish off your Hot Wheels Christmas Tree with a mini monster truck.
At first, my son was a little upset to see what Mommy had done to his cars but he got over it real quick once he figured out what we were doing with them. To add a little something extra, I turned traffic sign stickers into ornaments and topped off the DIY Hot Wheels Christmas Tree with a monster truck!
We keep the tree in my son’s room on a timer so he can enjoy it every night! Want to make your own Hot Wheels Christmas Tree? Follow these easy instructions below.
