Because there’s simply nothing better than giving 100% Aussie made sustainable gifts for the ones you love.
Gifts for dad
Dad will always hold a special place in your heart, but is often the trickiest to buy for. One Two Tree’s Large Christmas Tree would be the perfect treat for dad. We recently added The Large Christmas Tree, which now stands at 150cm tall and would be a great addition to the family living room for many festive seasons to come. We think he will definitely appreciate its minimalistic and timeless design.
Gifts for mum
To complement mum’s gift to dad’s (like how they complement each other), try getting her our wooden Christmas tree ornaments. The adorable decorations come in the Bauble Set or the Santa Set in different sizes and packs. Our signature Christmas Tree will stay on-trend with the help of mum’s decorating skills.
Gifts for the brother
Our linen prints are a fun addition to any room and we think any brother would appreciate the nautical ones. The nautical linen prints are perfect to hang above the bed or simply on the wall to add a nice a naval feel. They’re available in a variety of colours and prints for every kind of brother out there!
Gifts for the sister
The latest Treasure Boards range could not be a better gift for the sister. These fantastic Treasure Boards are available in different shapes and sizes: Play House, Wally Wombat, Dream Cloud, Rain Cloud, The Circle and Australia. All of the Treasure Boards come with shelf inserts that cleverly (and safely) locks together so she can conveniently display all her delicate trinkets.
Gifts for the bestie
Besties aren’t necessarily family but they are the family you choose and for that, they deserve a special gift. We suggest you get her one of our wooden Message Boards; it’s simple and easy to personalise with our Custom Wooden Letters. Like our famous Christmas Tree, the Message Boards are 100% Aussie made and environmentally friendly. What more could one want from a gift?
Gifts for the little one
For the last but definitely not the least! The littlest one needs a pressie too and we got just the perfect thing. Treat your little one to some (or all) of our furry friends from the Little Aussie Treasures collection. It ranges from our native Kangaroo to the Koala to even a Rainbow and they are super cute available in an array of pastel shades. If you like to keep it simple, they’re also available in their natural wooden shade. Bonus tip: this collection of wooden goodies goes hand-in-hand with the Australia Treasure Board!
Currently in the One Two Tree studio, we are in the midst of a very exciting project. The type of project that gets our blood pumping, and our hearts in a little flutter. We’ll give you a few clues: it involves hand-crafting, some plywood (sustainably sourced, of course), and our signature touch of Australiana. Yes, we’ve got some Little Aussie Treasures in development!
We love our Aussie Treasure Board so much that we’ve decided to design some furry friends to perch upon it. Our beautiful country of Australia has some of the most unique animals in the world, and we’d like to share them with you. Meet the Wombat, Kangaroo, Echidna, the Koala that sits in the Gum Trees. And a rainbow ‘cos Australia is just our pot of gold.
We’re still in the prototyping phase, but they are already looking so darn cute! We just couldn’t keep them to ourselves! Here’s a sneak peak of how the little tackers are shaping up so far:
Stay tuned for more adorable updates coming soon.

- – Blade
- – Ruler
- – Hole punch
- – Adhesive
- – Paint brush
- – Minieco template printed on the paper of your choice

- Step 3. Fold along each line that you have just scored
- Step 4. Punch a hole at the indicated spot in the middle of the template
- Step 5. Cut a piece of string about 30cm long, loop through the hole and tie a small knot on the inside of the star
- Step 6. Brush on a small amount of adhesive to each of the smaller tabs and stick together (it may be a little bit easier to stick one tab at a time)
- Step 7. Decorate your OneTwoTree Christmas tree!
There really is just something about Christmas…
Whether it’s time off with your loved ones, delicious feasting and community spirit or pressies given and received, we love it through and through.
Anyone who’s familiar with the One Two Tree story would know that it’s this wonderful time of year that inspired our journey into the small business world. We’re never ones for plantation chop-downs and cheap plastic destined for land fill. So we found ourselves stumped when searching for a beautifully designed, utilitarian and most of all eco friendly tree option for our first family Christmas. We donned our hard hats and decided to build our own, and have kept on building them ever since!
Minimal, sophisticated, neutral and luxe. The One Two Tree Christmas Tree has been our signature, Australian designed and made product for 4 years now.
That said, not a year has gone by without numerous requests for a large tree addition to the One Two Tree family. So, in 2015, those wishes have all come true!
This year at One Two Tree we present you with two gorgeous, sustainable wooden Christmas tree’s. Weighing in at 85cm and 150cm high, if you find you can’t choose, why not bring home both! We’ve built them to last you a life-time. Also to bring love and light to any corner of any room each and every Christmas season.
Stay tuned for more Christmas offerings from us! And whatever you do, we hope you give a little love to our planet this silly season. Whether it’s investing in well-made pieces and shunning plastic nasties, or recycling wrapping and shopping locally. Nothing’s ever too small to make an impact.
Let it never be said that we at One Two Tree fail to heed the cries of our beloved friends and customers.
Who knows how many emails, comments and friendly phone calls we’ve received requesting our signature eco-friendly Christmas tree in a larger, more traditional size. We have finally buckled down and built the damn thing! And now we must thank you, you persistent people. What we’ve created is something bigger, bolder and just so so beautiful. Right in time for your 2015 Christmas celebrations!
Standing at a glorious 150cm and weighing in at almost 15kg – our Large One Two Tree is an absolute beauty. All-Australian designed and made to last you and your family a happy lifetime. Let us banish those plastic, land-filling nasties from your home, office or retail space once and for all.
“Where do you get those beautiful paper baubles from?”. This has been a popular question for many of our customers. The answer is: Poppies for Grace
They are called the mini honeycomb tissue balls and they come in every colour under the rainbow. They also come with little a white tie string so you could easily hang them on your One Two Tree branches too. We decided to lose the string and just causally place them on top of each branch in a spiral formation of colour and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
Poppies for Grace is the work of besties Alana and Sara. Their business is quite simply a celebration of colour and paper. So if you are celebrating they have you covered with an array of beautiful paper decorations. Their range has it all from lolly bags to stationary, from confetti to wedding invites. It’s a well orchestrated collection of everything you need to soiree in style.
We will be stocking their honeycomb tissue ball very soon, but in the meantime check their website out. Both Alana and Sara are ever so helpful and will literally bend over backwards to help you out.
If you’re loving the decorations you see in the picture above well so do we. So much so we are now stocking the Crystal Pyramid Poms online in our shop right now for you to purchase.
Made by the talented artistic duo Dear Plastic they come in a DIY pack of four with easy to follow instructions and beautiful twine string to hang them straight onto your One Two Tree.
We discovered Dear Plastic online and instantly fell in love with their colourful creative ways. Handmade with a watercolor finish each POM is truly captivating and so vibrant and they truly complement our One Two Tree.
We asked Yumi and Taki from Dear Plastic five quick questions
1. How did Dear Plastic form? Dear Plastic started organically. Just the two of us creating and developing ideas together and making things for friends. I guess 3 years ago we decided that we wanted to develop it further and work on our ideas full time.
2. Is this a full time career for you both? Yes.
3. How does sustainability and the environment play a role in your work? The environment and nature is a big influence on our work. We both have a strong connection with Shinto belief and the idea that everything has a Spirit or God. This respect for everything around us leads to sustainable ideas. I guess that keeps us always thinking of ways of creating ideas that have the least impact on the environment.
4. What does POM stand for? POM is the sound of fireworks exploding in Japanese! Our POM’s turn from 2D to 3D over and over again by pulling a string and we think it similar to fireworks going off!
5. What’s next for dear plastic, new products? exhibitions? We are working on a window installation for Pieces of Eight gallery in Melbourne at the moment. That will open on the 3rd of Dec. We will have a stall at the upcoming Markit at Fed Square in Melbourne and then at Finders Keepers in Sydney. We’re really interested in collaborating and working on larger spaces for installations.
We hope you like them as much as we do.
Here we have a lovely minimalist look with our One Two Tree slightly open from it’s flat facing stand. We found these lovely metal swing tags! We thought how nice it would be to write the names of our family members on each one. If you were thinking how can you DIY this look yourself, try finding some beautiful coloured paper cards. Then make a similar swing tag template then hand cut them to size. Hole punch and thread a contrast ribbon through and voila! So easy.
We can’t take full credit for these beautiful paper medallions. We discovered them on the amazing website http://www.minieco.co.uk filled with so much paper crafting eye candy. You can easily spend hours perusing over all of the many DIY creations.
The medallions looked like an achievable start for me. I downloaded the free template and printed it on some coloured paper purchased from my local office supply store. I spent a good afternoon and evening cutting, folding and sewing together these beautiful little flowers.
Minieco has step by step directions and lists everything you will need to make them! She also provides you with templates to all of her many craft creations.
We made about 25 flowers and stuck them to our One Two Tree with blue-tak. You can easily tie little ribbons or string to the flowers and hang them in a spiral formation.
I hope our pictures inspire you. Happy paper crafting.
One Two Tree is not only quick and easy to assemble, its design is versatile. Meaning you could essentially update your One Two Tree look daily, weekly and most certainly yearly. We hope our inspirational story board will help excite you with your One Two Tree styling this Christmas.
Tips for tree styling:
A handy tip before you start styling/shaping your tree is to loosen the top screw by half a turn or so making the branches easier to rotate. This way they are much easier to move and can be easily spun and positioned into your desired form. Once your design is finalised then tighten the real pokies online top screw which will more securely hold your tree into position.
Another tip when tree styling is not to forget about rotating your small spacer blocks in between your branches. Sometimes we line ours up with the bigger branches for a more uniform look or maybe we might offset them with the bigger branches for contrast and form. The possibilities are plenty.
Another great idea for decorating your One Two Tree is a nontraditional one but a creative one. We styled our tree in an “X” formation and using two different colours of chord string we threaded and knotted through the holes of each branch.
To start with you need to cut two lengths of the pink chord string at 200cm and four lengths of the green chord one at 200cm. Knotting one end of the pink string you thread up from one corner of the bottom branches first, threading through the hole of each branch directly above. Work your way up to the top and then follow down the opposing side till you reach the bottom. Tie off the pink string keeping the line fairly tight but not too tight. Repeat this step on the other side, they will overlap at the very top.
With the green chord string you start at the very top of one of the four branches. Thread the green string through the top branch hole so that roulette online it evenly halves and you have two ends, one in each hand. Simply cross and tie the string like you are tying a shoe lace and thread one end through the next branch hole. Repeat the cross over tie and work your way down the branches one at a time tying off at the end. Again keep the string fairly tight but not too tight. Do this four times on each side. If the end of your chord string is fraying use a match flame to burn and melt the end so that it can be easily threaded.
You can easily experiment and do several different combinations. This is just one idea – imagine what else can be done. We will share another tied up idea with you very soon.
