Fresh Pine & Birch Tree Centerpiece

Facebooktwitterpinterestmail

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.

      Inga, It curls on it’s own. If you want smaller curls you can simply split the curls just by peeling a piece off. Our tree is filled with them right now. They peel right off! The centerpiece was an afterthought after I saw another tutorial just the other day as I mentioned in the post. Hopefully you caught my full home tour posted weeks ago. It’s full of many ideas. I also have 9 years worth of ideas in my holiday section located here: https://redheadcandecorate.com/category/christmas/

    So calm and beautiful. It’s not in my home, and this fabulous diy put a big smile on my face, as I sat in my tv room viewing your site, with Christmas music playing in the background.
    Thank you, stay safe. Happy holidays to you and your family.

    I love the centerpiece (no access to birch here though) & I love the wall decor!!! The two work wonderfully together. How did you acquire the pieces for the wall decor?

  9. Debbie says:

    This is so beautiful and looks easy enough for me to do. I wish I had seen it earlier too but I will save it for next year. I have plenty of pine and birch in my backyard. Merry Christmas to you and your family🎄
