I thought I was finished decorating for Christmas, but then I was inspired by my sweet friend Paula, from Virginia Sweet Pea. After I saw Paula’s tutorial on DIY centerpieces, I just couldn’t resist heading outside in our yard to see what I could find. I knew I had Pine trees to clip from, but what else could I find in freezing cold Michigan??? Surprisingly, I came across fresh finds all over the place. I hope you enjoy my last minute “Fresh Pine & Birch Tree Centerpiece” tour…
Up above you’ll see everything my husband helped me gather from our yard (I recently hurt my left arm and have tennis elbow without playing tennis 😳) including fresh Pine tree clippings, red dogwood twigs, dried brown vines, birch tree limbs & bark curls, and green ivy vines that were still very much alive.
Well, shiver me timbers…can you believe how pretty this glorious Christmas creation turned out? I was absolutely SHOCKED. So were my cats.
I was so shocked, I couldn’t stop taking photos of it 😆. My favorite part are the birch tree bark curls. We started calling our cat “Birch” since his real name is “Forest”…Birch Forest it is!
I’m a tad late this year to be doing a tutorial on this lovely lady in green, but you can bet your candy canes I’m going to give a full detailed tutorial on how I created this Fresh Pine & Birch Tree Centerpiece next year.
One quick tip I want to tell you is that it really was simple using these Floral Foam Bricks. I basically just stuck everything in (including the birch tree bark curls from our yard), watered it, and put fairy lights on it. BOOM.
