I think it’s been pretty well-established that I’m completely and totally obsessed with all things Christmas. I love the sights, the sounds and the smells of my favorite holiday.
One of my favorite parts of Christmas? The tree. Not the getting it in the house/putting it up/decorating it/taking it down part. I just really love looking at it once it’s all done. I’ve had a fresh, real Christmas tree in my house every year since I’ve moved in. Nine beautiful and aromatic trees…dropping needles all over my living room and creating a gigantic mess. This year I decided to make the leap to an artificial tree. Yes, I’m dying a little inside. But it was one of those things I had to do-even though I’m not sure I really wanted to do it.
So in the spirit of going fake Christmas tree, I decided to create something that embraced my favorite type of fake tree-the bottle brush. On my near daily trips to the craft store, I’ve seen them everywhere. The bottle brush trees, the adorable little accessories…so much vintage awesomeness everywhere I look.
This is a totally kid-friendly project. Or adult-who’s-not-crafty-friendly project, for that matter. Start by getting a rough idea of how you want to place everything inside your jar.
If you decide to add a tiny bird-or any other accessories-to your bottle brush tree, just bend the bristles to make a spot, then use more glue dots to hold it in place. (You can fold the glue dot in half if you need to make it smaller.)
Once you’re happy with the placement of everything on your lid, just screw on the top of the ornament.
And, the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection scents like BE AT PEACE™ are there to help keep you from missing the scent of a real Christmas tree too much with its hints of Balsam Fir & Juniper.
Look for other winter collection scents from Glade®, including Apple Cinnamon-inspired CHERISH THE PRESENT™, Vanilla Biscotti-inspired SEND A LITTLE LOVE™ and Pomegranate-inspired SHARE THE SPIRIT™. You can find them all at your local Publix store.
And don’t be too hard on yourself if you decided to go artificial tree this year. Just enjoy the scent of BE AT PEACE™ and the time you’re not spending vacuuming up tree needles.
