Charlie Brown, by far, has the most recognizable Christmas tree ever. His gloomy little tree somehow brings joy to everyone that has ever sat and watched his movies during the holidays. The 8 year old version of myself thought my counter needed a version of that iconic tree.
I recently cut some wood slices from a log I found in our firewood to use as ornaments, but one was a little too thick. I thought it looked more like a cute base for a bottle brush tree. I didn’t have one of those in need of a stand so I went outside and clipped a little branch from a pine tree in my yard.
I sized up the stem of the branch and found a drill bit that looked similar and used it to drill a hole in the center of the wood circle.
I added some hot glue right into the hole and stuck the branch into it.
It will dry out and all the needles will fall off eventually. But for now, it’s a cute little tree. Besides, it was free so even if it only lasts a week who cares.
It even has one lonely pinecone hanging just like Charlie had that one red ornament.
Now I just need Snoopy.
