Have you ever repurposed an artificial Christmas tree? If not, here is a way you can do it!
Boy, was I disappointed yet again this year when I took out our fairly new ￼artificial Christmas trees and lights were broken!
I was all set to throw the trees away when I thought of using the branches￼ as decor in my window boxes. Normally in years past I would buy fresh evergreens from a local farm, but at five windows the cost￼ adds up…
I gathered my ideas and went to work! The top of the tree was made into a miniature tree placed in a ceramic pot outside. I then wrapped in some old snowy berry garland I had on hand from previous years￼￼. Most of the added accents used were all decorations I already had.
My favorite is the centerpiece I had kept from a previous floral arrangement. I placed it in the window box over my kitchen sink which allows us to enjoy it every day! I also tried something new this year called Christmas￼ solar lights! They were used in the window boxes as well as the potted tree top. It’s great not having wires all over! ￼￼
The total cost of my project was:
(5) solar lights from Home Depot @ $19.99
(2) garland from Wayfair @ $11.99
TOTAL COST $134.84
Everything else was re-purposed from previous Holidays! I hope you enjoy and can use this repurposed idea!
Happy Monday! Love, Kathy
