Adding a little holiday cheer to unexpected places is fun and helps to create a warm and welcoming home. Using a colander as it's base and vintage kitchen odds and ends, (measuring spoons and cookie cutters)...I created a fun kitchen tree...a perfect recipe for holiday magic for any kitchen.
Time: 30 MinutesCost: $12Difficulty: Easy
I placed a kitchen towel in the bottom. I planned to add wood shavings to cover the base and the towel helped to prevent the little wood bits from making a mess on the counter. The towel also filled some of the empty space and helped to secure the tree inside the colander. Other options include: cling wrap, or crumpled newspaper. --basically, plan to cover the holes in the bottom in some way to prevent the shavings from making a mess (if using)
Cover the tree base and fill the colander with wood shavings ( available in the dried naturals section of most craft stores) Or cover base of tree with a festive holiday dish towel. Begin placing small kitchen tools onto the tree. (biscuit cutters, teaspoons, measuring cups, holiday cookie cutters) Consider tying on cinnamon stick bundles, for a fragrant option.

AnswersWhat did you use to anchor the tree? Something that had to be heavy enough to balance it, right?
