Hey! Here’s another DIY project that’s perfect for the season. Yep, as you’ve read from the title, I made a DIY Branch Christmas tree! I wanted to be extra, plus, Geneva Vanderzeil, really inspired me with this project. I love all her work!
So… After the typhoon Ulysses, I went around our village to looked for branches. I saw small trees fell, and I took the some branches lying on the grounds. I thought it will be useful for something than be thrown away.
Then, I bought some new decorations at Ayala Feliz mall just because I want a white and gold theme for this Christmas tree. You can always use your old ones, not a problem! Here are the materials needed for this project:
- Branches – I cut it into 7 different sizes to form a Christmas tree
- Cord of your choice – since I still have macrame cords, I used that
- Christmas tree ornaments
- Christmas lights
- Scissors for cutting
- Hook or nail for hanging the tree
The step by step instructions is in the video I made, link is at the bottom of this blog.
Does it look like a Christmas tree now?
With decorations. I felt like I need to add more, but, this will suffice for now
Here’s the finished product with lights and some styling! This will look better at night!
I’m so happy of how it turned out! From trash to a fab Christmas tree in a flash! You can make this for less than an hour.
The view with my plants. Yes, tell me I’m conceited, but it’s so beautiful!
I wanted to publish this blog before Thanksgiving that’s why I didn’t have photos with my kids (they’re doing online classes when we filmed this). For sure we’ll have our family picture on Christmas!
Fun fact: I made the tree earlier, filmed and edited the vlog after, and took these photos. All done in three hours! Haha! To watch how I made it, here’s the video. Enjoy!
I hope this blog helps especially for those who are still deciding if you’ll buy a Christmas tree or just starting to decorate your home for the holidays. I enjoyed making this, and I hope you do too! For more of my DIY crafts and adventures, please follow me on Facebook and Instagram and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
