Take a cheap tree.
Take what you have laying around……
Except your iphone……
And you can make cheapie…….pretty……
I love using “cheap” poinsettia’s. They are just a flower and a stem. You can get them at Micheal’s.
I have used them as fillers for my tree and other decor for years.
Mine are pretty old.
I tuck them in and it can give your tree a whole new look.
Pretty, isn’t it?
Want to see it with the red?
It needed something else…..
Cotton blossoms tucked in “here and there” were a great break in the bright red. Still budding on their branches….some full and fluffy….some almost closed. I love them.
I didn’t want to use my poinsettia’s on my little tree this year….
I had other plans.
I started with the cotton we “gleaned” in Georgia.
That wasn’t happening by itself.
Then I tucked in the “Dollar Tree” berries and plain ‘ole pinestraw from my yard.
Added a few pine cones, also from the yard…..and wah lah.
Such a natural pretty.
The same “ingredients” can be used in your larger tree.
I love using items like this as filler for my real or artifical tree’s.
I am still loving using cotton!
It has such a pretty texture and look.
Throw in the pine straw, dollar tree berries and pine cones…and it makes a cheapie fake tree…..real.
Don’t you think?
What do you have laying around your home that you could use?
Pine branches tied with twine?
Plain pine straw?
I would love to hear your thoughts!
I can’t wait to show you what else I am working on!
