I’m not going to write one of those posts apologizing for my lack of content creation lately. I’m not. Ok…I guess I am. Machelle has been single-handedly keeping this blog alive while in school with two kids. She is amazing. I on the other hand have no kids and am not in school. But I have a job. That is not a great excuse now that I am typing it out though.
So sorry for my lack of project creation lately. I thought I would ease back into it with a 5 minute project for you all. And I thought that this was so simple it must have been done a hundred times already but I searched and couldn’t find it. So if any of you have already seen one done go easy on me ok!
Bottle brush trees are my favorite Christmas decoration and have been for years. They’re timeless that way. I have included them in my holiday decor for at least the past five years. Last year I got a great deal on a bunch of these mini trees and used them as ornaments on my tree which I loved. This year, however, I got rid of my white Christmas tree (RIP) and opted for a green one. This left my mini trees discarded to the side and I had to use them for something!
- Mini Bottle Brush Trees //
- Twine //
I almost didn’t even document this because it is so simple! Cut a large strand of twine and then start at the end and tie the twine around the middle of the tree. Continue until you have all the trees tied on the twine. I spaced my mini trees about 3-4 inches apart from one another in case you’re wondering.
Hang up your new garland using any type of tape. The garlands are super light so plain gift tape should work well. If my tree was white this year this would definitely be my tree garland.
If I had a ton of larger bottle brush trees that I wasn’t already using on my mantel I would love to try making a garland with them too. These would also be great to use for wrapping gifts!
