Charlie Brown Christmas Tree 2021
Here’s a step-by-step guide to finding Christmas’ real meaning by making your own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
- 2 branches
- 2 containers
- Piece of wood
- Red ball ornament
- Ornament hook
- Electric drill
- Drill bits
- Dried beans
- Wood glue
- Collect Branches
Look for two or three hard and strong branches. Whenever you shop for sticks or branches, choose strong and sturdy ones if you have pets or children at home. Your tree will be better protected if it has strong branches.
Find branches with multiple branches that vary in length. You will have more creative space with these extensions of branches. You will find it very useful during the process of decorating. With this method, you can hang your ornaments in a variety of ways.
- Place small container with branches inside large container
Fit small container inside large container You will need two metal containers for this. Ideally, there should be only one large container that has sturdy sides. Another option is to use a sturdy box or basket. Ensure that the second container is small enough to fit easily inside the large container.
You will now need to place the branches inside the small container. You can make the branches more stable by tucking old towels around them. Sand and landscaping rocks can also be used if they are available. Nevertheless, I like to use something that can be thrown in the dishwasher and put away when it’s finished!
- Remove the gap
Fill the empty space between the large and small containers. Towels and an old pillow can be used. When you hang the ornaments on your Charlie Brown Tree, you can use this technique to keep the small container from moving and getting off center. Don’t forget to pack it very tightly! A heavy branch could topple your tree, and you don’t want that happening. There is no need to worry if everything cannot fit under the rim. Your filler will be covered.
- Add Green
Greens are the perfect topping for your filler. My choice of moss was green. Rather than just branches, this gives the appearance of a tree. The festive look will also be enhanced by the addition of some winter greens.
- Hang Ornaments
Place beans (or pebbles) inside the ornament to create an interesting effect. A few will be enough. A minor upper branch can be used to hang the ornament. There might be an adjustment needed to determine the right amount of beans inside. The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating! If you want to decorate branches, make sure they are strong enough to sustain your decor.
