You didn’t think I WOOD let the holidays go by with out a tree stump in the mix, did you?
Well, WOOD you?
This idea came to me in my sleep. I didn’t dream it, but I thought of it while falling asleep. I have no idea how I remembered in the morning, but I’m glad I did because they turned out so darn cute. They are rustic, elegant, and charming all in one.
When I was little, I loved setting the Christmas table. We didn’t have a lot of fancy decor, but I remember using the paper napkins as a “place card” and I would write everyone’s name on their napkin. You can imagine the redhead’s wheels turning even then. These are definitely a step up, but almost as easy.
This is how you make do it:
First, I asked my hubby to cut a few “mini stumps” from a tree branch out in our yard. He brought one in to check to see if I liked it, and it was perfect. He’s really getting good at this stuff. I love the bark on these.
Next, I went down in our basement and located the ornaments. It took me a while to find these, but they were perfect size for the mini-tree stumps.
Then, I removed the hooks and wrapped strong black wire around the top. I held the wire down on the ornament top and wrapped it around the opening as tight as I could get it. Then, I took it off after a few loops, and I wrapped the other end around a pen. After a little practice, I manipulated it so the pen part could hold a card. I stuck the other end back on the ornament. No glue required.
They also make cute little Christmas photo holders.
