Decorating the Christmas Tree doesn’t have to be expensive and store bought. An inexpensive way to decorate the tree is by bringing the outdoors in. A cute garland is easily created using sticks and pine cones.
Using twine or jute, tie sticks and pine cones in a pattern to create the garland.
It takes a while to tie the sticks and pine cones together. I worked on my garland the day after Thanksgiving while watching old movies with my girls. It can be quite messy so be prepared to sweep up afterwords.
Last year I created the twig garland inspired by Donna from www.funkyjunkinteriors.net for my small Junkin Christmas Tree.
I loved the junk tree so much I decided to decorate a full size tree instead of the small tree. That decision left me with a huge problem, I didn’t have enough twig garland for the larger tree. I did, however, have tons of pine cones to add to the twigs. That worked!
A rustic outdoor decoration added to my much larger Christmas Tree.
