Well, it is more like a Christmas tree arrangement… but it works for us.
Philip had a great idea to pick up Christmas tree branches from a tree stand to bring some Christmas into the house without spending a fortune on a live Christmas tree. I decided to take the branches and arrange them to look like a Christmas tree. Or at least attempt to make them look like one. I first picked out some branches I thought would make a nice tree top. I held them together by tying them with brown sewing thread and placing them in this simple green vase that I had on hand.
I then went around the base placing branches and attempting to arrange them in a Christmas tree shape. I wasn’t too worried about getting the shape perfect, because I knew I could always go back with pruning sheers and cut it to shape.
