When Debbie first announced our Christmas Pinterest challenge, I was totally stoked! I asked myself what projects could be done on the cheap! So, if you like DIY's that don't cost a lot, read up! My first project was inspired by this pin from Better Homes and Gardens.
- a banister (sorry Debbie, that probably hurts)!
- free tree trimmings
- small balls (hey, i know what you're thinking, keep it clean)!
- fishing line
- glue gun
- scissors or tree trimmer
I cleared off my dining room table (I highly recommend you don't do this. A garage or backyard would be far more appropriate). First, I layered and trimmed the branches, then the tree trimmings, and lastly the holly. Then, I tied everything together with a ribbon.
With the fishing line, I evenly spaced out the works of art and attached them to the banister in two places. Voila! Although time consuming, this was a super fun and cheap project that I will definitely repeat next year!
Let me be the first to admit that I apparently don't have as many friends as the tree on Pinterest! Seriously, this was so easy an 8-year-old could have done it (no offense to 8-year-olds). This idea was inspired by the pin from Martha Stewart.
- friends (for your christmas cards)
- hole punch
- tree trimmer for branches
Merry Christmas! - Kimie
