Clippings from artificial garland are stuck into wine and champagne corks to make these tiny evergreen trees.
You'll need corks, wire cutters, a screw and artificial garland (I got my garland at Michael's for $1.99).
Using a screw – make a hole in the top of a cork. Cut a branch off of the garland and stick it into the hole. Get the kids to help with this one – they'll love it.
Cut some bases in half and leave some tall to create variation. I'm setting a few of these aside for my daughter's dollhouse.
I plan on using these as favors on each plate for our Christmas Eve dinner.
Three tiny trees are tucked into a vintage chamagne glass that is filled with uncooked rice.
A small winter scene to set on a cocktail tray for an evening get together with friends.
If you're interested in a different silhouette – give your tree a trim. A few snips with a pair of scissors and this tree was easily reshaped.
Today I remembered that I love this song.
