DIY: Christmas Tree in a Bottle Ornament

DIY Christmas tree in a bottle ornament

Bring a unique Christmas style to your home with this handmade ornament!  Add this bottle
brush tree decoration to your collection of Christmas ornaments and look forward to hanging 
it up on your tree every holiday season. Hang it up in the center of a wreath on your front door. 
You can even simply set it on a table or shelf to add a bit of festive holiday spirit wherever 
you need it. You may even tie several together to create a fun garland for your decor need.

This ornament contains a tiny winter scene that will perfectly complement the rest of the 
festive ornaments on your life-size tree! It's been partially filled with artificial snow, 
making it look like a winter weather scene. 
 
To make an ornament like this you will need the following:

  • artificial snowflakes/flurries
  • small glass bottles with cork tops (four inches or smaller)
  • small bottle brush Christmas trees, (different sizes optional, but that fit inside bottles)
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • string for hanging (your choice of string)
  • looped hooks to place the string

To begin, you may cut the amount of string that you need and tie it through the looped hooks
as seen below.

Screw the hook into the cork making sure it is tight and snug.  You may twist it into the cork
with your hands.

Next, add a drop of hot glue to the bottom of the bottle brush tree and place it into the glass
bottle.

For the wintry effect, add the snowflakes into the bottle pushing it gently with a thin stick,
coffee straw or kabob stick so it stays in the bottom. Then add the cork to the top gently,
but tight to close it.  Make sure it is not loose, some may feel more comfortable by adding glue
to secure it, but I did not add glue to mine and it is fine. 

You may make several of these for your Christmas Tree or home decor. They will be great
for an ornament exchange party, the ideas are endless. Aren't they adorable? I love it!
