5 Free Ways to Decorate With Christmas Tree Clippings
Ho-ho-hold on to those free tree clippings this year for holiday decor you won’t find in stores.
This year, don’t let those precious tree clippings go to waste. These five ways to repurpose tree clippings will take your holiday decor to the next level all while saving you a bundle!
First, use pruning shears to cut small pieces of evergreen off of a larger bunch. Create a small circle with floral wire and wrap with the small pieces of greenery, using more floral wire to bind in place. Hang mini wreaths from the ceiling or mantel with red ribbon for the ultimate holiday bliss!
Christmas Tree Centerpiece
Begin by soaking a small cube of floral foam in water. Once fully saturated, place the foam in a large vase and poke large pieces of evergreen in the foam. Polish off with small ornaments and place in the center of the table for a perfect mini tree.
When wrapping gifts this year, skip the bow and instead tie small pieces of evergreen to each gift for the perfect handmade touch.
Nothing says, “You’re family,” like a personalized place card waiting for you at the table. A little sprig of evergreen on each setting doesn’t hurt.
Forgo the expense of holiday candles and put that slow cooker to good use. With some evergreen, orange peels, cloves, cinnamon sticks and water on a simmer, the whole neighborhood will smell like the holidays.
