TWINE TREE TUTORIAL
I'm sharing a cute and easy DIY Christmas Tree. It's rustic and simple and with the buzz about shipping delays and product shortages, creating something from scraps around the house is the best idea!
When I was in South Carolina this fall, I spotted the most adorable tree in a home decor shop. Made of twine and wood, it was the perfect neutral to fit in with my style.
If you follow me, you know I love a more simple look (except at the holidays.) Maybe because I have more holiday decor than any other so sometimes its hard not to use it all!
I thought these were so cute, I didn't create them exactly the same but I definitely used this one for inspiration.
The materials are simple - you can use several different things to create the tree then cover in twine or rope and add a trunk and base.
For the tree you could use:CardboardStyrofoamPoster BoardPainters Tape
For the trunk you could use:StickPopsicle stickDowel rodPaint stirrer
For the base you could use:Cut piece of log/branchScrap of wood
I think the perfect topping is star of anise.
I've created a few of these and each are different.
For some I decided to use a scrap of wood for the base, for another I cut a piece of branch off and used that as a base. For the trunk I just grabbed some sticks from the yard.
Some I wrapped with twine, some I left the twig plain.
I made them in various sizes with the same shape and think they add a nice touch to my vintage window mantel.
Below are the steps to create this pretty twine tree for your own home.
Step One:Gather all of your materials.
Step Two:Trace a triangle on your foam or cardboard. (You could also use scrap wood).
Step Three:Cut the triangle out.
Step Four:Using a glue gun, begin gluing twine around the bottom and work your way to the top.
Step Five:Take your twig or stick for your trunk and whittle the edge (a sharp kitchen knife is fine) to make it sharp then stick it into the bottom of your tree.
Step Six:Drill a hole in your base, large enough to hold the stick/trunk.
Step Seven:Put the trunk into the base and secure with a little bit of glue.
That's all it takes to make these cute little rustic trees. What do you think? They are not perfect but I'm ok with that. You can tell they weren't made in a factory.
Here they are on my mantel.
I think I will create a few more to make a twine forest!
