12 Days of Christmas Crafts #8: Branch Centerpiece

Craft #8: Christmas Tree Branch Centerpiece

This was incredibly simple. We cut the limbs from the bottom of the Christmas tree that were hanging, and I couldn't just throw them out! So I used them, along with an empty glass jar and some berries from the craft store, to make myself a little display :)

1. Leftover branches
2. Berries (On sale for $.50 ea!)
3. Empty jar or vase
4. Some pretty ribbon

First, I cut smaller pieces off my branches to fill my jar.

Second, I added my berries...just spread them out a bit.

Third, I added more branches, this time didn't cut them so small.

Fourth, I used my ribbon for a bow to spice it up :)

Easy Peasy!! Hope you enjoy :)

...and here is a pic of my tree..lol, I know, it needs more ornaments! I'm working on it :) ...oh, and I need a tree topper! haha...
