So I was window shopping in the local downtown shops one day.
Miniature Christmas Tree Craft
And I saw the cutest little trees in crystal salt and pepper shakers. And I thought… I CAN DO THAT.
You guys. This DIY is so easy!
I may or may not have gone a little crazy.
Hey. GO BIG OR GO HOME.
I love my trees.
You only need a few things to make your own miniature Christmas tree “forest” happen for yourself.
Miniature trees (like these super cute ones HERE)…
Assorted thrifted brass or glass candleholders and salt & pepper shakers… thrifted small bowls or cups… and egg cup or two even! There is no ONE way to make these cuties happen…
And wine corks (HERE if you don’t have any on hand!)…
Bada boom, bada bing… You have the cutest little Christmas forest all up in your house!
It’s a MINIATURE CHRISTMAS TREE FOREST WONDERLAND, Y’ALL!
Look at those cutie patooties!
Get creative! You can use glass or brass or whatever tickles your fancy! A few trips to Goodwill and select thrift shops gave me a wide variety of holders… vases, salt and pepper shakers, and of course all sizes and varieties of candle holders… from pillar candles, to taper candles, even tea light holders! I even found some mini glass dessert cups that turned out to be so cute! See an example, second from left in above photo!
What do you think?!
If this kind-of DIY isn’t your cup-o-tee, I have loads more! Check out this post I have with 10 No-Sew holiday DIYs. Surely ONE of the will tickle your fancy!
