DIY Mini Christmas Tree

This weekend I had an unprecedented HOUR to wander the aisles of my local craft store.  Alone.  No kids.  Armed only with a Starbucks latte, a coupon and an insatiable thirst for ALLTHECRAFTSUPPLIES.  Not only were there some fantastic sales going on, I had one of those almighty 15% off regular and sale purchase coupons.  Carpe diem if I ever saw it.

I was finishing up my spree of t-shirt, melting chocolate, candy cane and garland buying when I rounded the corner and saw the most adorable little trees.  They were little fake evergreen trees, roughly a foot tall, with the bases wrapped in burlap.  Normally $4.99, they were 50% off and then I used my coupon on top of that discount!  Final price for the tree was just $2.12.  (Yes, I grabbed several of them!)

The wheels started to turn as I thought about different ways to decorate them.  I found a pack of small silver bells ($2.54 for 36 bells, I used about 6 on the tree) and then a pack of sparkly glittery balls for $2.72 (I used about 1/4 of the pack).  When I got home I grabbed my trusty hot glue gun and got to work!

I found some similar decor online if you can’t get to a craft store: tree, bells, ornaments.

Glitter Balls Jingle Bells

I used the hot glue gun to glue the ornaments and bells onto the tree branches.  Just a small dot of glue held them perfectly onto the tree.

Here is the finished tree, made for about $3.50 in material!

I’ll be making more of these and using them as decorations around the house.  They would make incredibly festive hostess gifts, gift card holders, etc!  I even bought a pink/blue/silver set of the glittery balls to make a “girly” tree for Lily’s room.  It will have all of her very favorite colors – she’s going to love it!!
