One last Christmas craft at the dining table, just before Christmas weekend! A festive bottlebrush tree terrarium! Another simple craft the girls loved because they could put these together all by themselves.
I love these because they are simple, winter scenes which remind you of a forest of pine after fresh fallen snow. I can almost see us walking amongst the trees breathing in the scent of pine and leaving footprints in the snow.
Our house of craft is always full of crafty supplies and I recently picked up bags full of bottlebrush trees from the dollar store to bleach and dye. I have mad love for pretty coloured and glittered bottlebrush trees.
But we put a couple packs aside for terrariums. I just had to grab some glass jars and artificial snow, also from the dollar store, so the girls could create their wintry scenes.
The larger trees didn’t fit inside the jars, so we cut off the base right at the bottom of the tree for a perfect fit.
The girls used hot glue to attach their trees to the lid.
Sprinkled the lid with a handful of sparkly, artificial snow, and then carefully screwed the jar back onto the lid.
They currently reside on our dining room table so we can enjoy them at supper.
It has been such a crafty Yule in our house. I hope you have enjoyed this week of Christmas crafting as much as we have enjoyed the crafting!
Alas, I am not quite done! I do have one more stocking to finish. Are you trying to finish any last minute craft projects?
