I don’t know about you but this year I am pulling fewer Christmas decorations out because I have down sized to a smaller home. The minimalistic part of me actually likes this. This Scandinavian approach to Christmas is so attractive this year. So I thought I stream line the trimming and create this cute Christmas tree from branches. I found them from my walks this week. Its simple and cute and perfect for my cottage rental this year.
My holiday inspiration came from looking at some Scandinavian holiday crafts on pinterest and mixing natural elements like branches, twine and adding some glam by using shiny color ornaments:
Here’s how you do it!
- 12 branches of any kind
- Tree pruners
- Assorted mini ornaments
- Any color ribbon
- One wooden Star ornament
Lets do it!
Add a little glue to each branch just enough to hold it together. Glue it on an old piece of something and don’t glue it to it.
Start from the bottom and tie the twine around the first branch in a knot and keep bringing the twine twice around each branch until you reach the top. Keep a longer piece at the end on each side to create a circle to hang it.
With a little ribbon tie ornaments all over the branches. Cut the ribbon evenly if pieces are too long. You can be creative by adding different colors or different style of ornament!
The wooden star is not attached to tree. You can hang the star on the same nail. Again be creative by hanging a wooden snowflake or even a candy cane could be cute!
