How to Make a Christmas Tree Centerpiece


How to Make a Christmas Tree Centerpiece. Use old baby food jars and a little holiday
magic to create an earth-friendly and beautiful decoration for your Christmas table. You will need 15 baby food jars White glue
A hammer A screwdriver Tin foil Christmas lights Ribbon A bow Metallic paint A piece
of cardboard Two blocks of wood (optional) Small pinecones (optional) Dried leaves (optional)
and cinnamon sticks (optional). Step 1. Clean and dry all of the baby food jars. Remove any labels, and set the lids aside. Step 2. Set the jars on their sides and glue them
into the shape of a tree, with a row of five jars forming the bottom, followed by a row
of four, then three, then two, and finally one jar. Allow each row to dry before adding the next
row. Use two blocks of wood or other heavy objects
to brace the rows as they dry. Step 3. Punch a hole in each jar lid. Use the hammer to tap the screwdriver until
it makes a small hole, and then move the screwdriver back and forth until the hole is large enough
to house a Christmas light. Step 4. Cover each hole with a piece of tin foil to
protect your hands while making the tree. Step 5. Insert a Christmas light into each lid. Then put the lids back on the jars so that
the lights are inside. Leave the cord hanging from the bottom of
the tree. Choose a strand of lights that matches your
home decor. Clear or single-color strands give a unified
look, while multicolored strands will reflect light in different ways. Step 6. Add ribbon and other decorations. Wrap a large ribbon around the outside of
the tree and tie a bow on top. Use glue to keep your decorations in place. Paint small pinecones or dried leaves brushed
with metallic paint or gather sprigs of holly to add to the decorations. Use cinnamon sticks to give off a delicious
aroma. Step 7. Cut a piece of cardboard to the size of your
tree. Paint it metallic silver or gold to match
your color scheme, and glue it to the back of the tree to hide the jar lids. Step 8. Place your tree on a table or in the window
and plug it in. Dim your house lights and enjoy your new homemade
source of Christmas cheer. Did you know On December 24, 1923, President
