Happy third Thursday of the Month! The third Thursday means that it’s time for the Creative Craft Blog hop. Which is always so much fun!!! Today I’m sharing a quick and easy Santa mugs and Bottle brush trees!
I’d seen these mugs around for years and thought they were cute.
I love the vintage/ retro vibe.
Before we get started I’d love to say thank you to Sara from Birdz of A Feather for hosting this hop every month. Please give her some love and head on over to see what fun things she has going on!
Also, if you are visiting here from Cecilia’s My Thrift Store Addiction thanks for stopping by. We always love it when friends drop in for a little fun.
Now let’s get started!
Hot glue and glue gun
Embellishments: ornaments, bells etc.
Small white tinsel
Add a piece of styrofoam to the bottom of the mug using floral tape or hot glue.
Start by adding the tall items.
Place your bottle brush tree pick into the styrofoam.
Then add any tall picks you may wish to use.
This step should have been my first one.
However, I wasn’t sure I would need it so decided to wait.
I glued this white tinsel to the top of my mug to hide the styrofoam.
Add in the embellishments.
This is where you have fun.
Poinsettias, jingle bells, vintage ornaments and greenery are all perfect decor for this vintage style arrangement.
Fill in any holes.
Make sure that you look at all sides of the arrangement for “holes”.
If you find any, add in greenery, berries etc. to fill in those areas.
Add a bow.
Adding a bow to the handle is the perfect way to finish off this arrangement!
Can you say Santa mugs and bottle brush trees please?
I hope that you enjoyed this easy tutorial and invite you to visit Sara’s Birdz of A Feather with me to see
