I love decorating my home with Christmas Trees, Sweet Friends and over Thanksgiving weekend I removed all the fall leaves from the Christmas Trees to add ornaments like bulbs and stars and icicles and yarn garland.
In my home, I don’t just put up Faux Christmas Trees. In my home, I create Christmas Trees out of whatever I can find. This year, I decide to create Christmas Tree Wall Art and took old junk and created Christmas Trees.
Mason Jar Lid Christmas Trees!
Did you see my Fall Trees? A few weeks ago I wrote about “Fall Decor into Christmas Decor in My Home.” Let me just tell you, it made setting up Christmas a heck of a lot easier. If you missed my fall trees, you can check it out here.
I think you might think I’m a little obsessed with Christmas Trees.
You might be right….
I’ve been using Christmas Trees since Thanksgiving. Did you see my “Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas” where I place trees and turkeys (really hens) all over my table?
Well, now it’s time to get to the Mason Jar Lid Christmas Tree Wall Art. Stay tuned, because their may be more Junk turned Christmas Trees in my home.
I use mason jars all the time, and I always end up with way too many lids. I love to use mason jars for many things like drinking coffee on the go, or creating a pretty flower arrangement or for storing leftover food, you get the picture? But on this Junk Christmas Tree, I’m using the lids of mason jars and shaping them into a tree.
Keep reading because I’m also including a quick DIY on how I made the Mason Jar Lid Christmas Tree.
