Hi guys, welcome back! I hope you like my previous post, Christmas Decor Home Tour. As I mentioned, I would share with you how to craft a small potted Christmas tree. It’s short and simple.
Ready to knock out this diy?
- 1 faux small white christmas tree
- 1 small galvanized bucket
- Miniature Christmas bulbs
- Tissue paper or paper brown lunch bags
- Glue gun (optional)
- Glue sticks
- 1 floral piece
Note: Some materials came from The Dollar Tree, others I already had.
Fold and place tissue paper inside on the bottom (this is optional.) I did this because I didn’t want to hot glue it directly to the bucket just in case I want to change up and use the bucket for something else. I then put hot glue on the tissue paper and place the tree on top.
Around the tree, insert the brown paper bag inside the bucket. To do this, I open up the paper bag and tore it lengthwise. Crumbled it a little, pushed it down inside bucket and around the tree. Keep adding more until you feel it’s secure. Also, if you don’t think you’ll use the bucket or tree for something else, feel free to hot glue everything to make it more secure.
Now to decorate or leave it plain?
That is the questioned. . .
Drum roll please! Yes, you guessed it! Decorate!!! You can string the miniatures bulbs if you want, but I chose to take the top of the bulbs and stick them onto the tree. Another way, would be to hot glue them.
Now for the final touch
Ha, I told you it was short and simple! Guess what??? There are several ways you can decorate it to fit your style. Add some paint, a print, or even fabric. Your options are endless, so go on and get creative!!! Until next time.
