The time has come to take our Christmas tree down. I found myself lying in bed trying to sleep thinking about ways I could re-purpose that lovely, yet slowly dying Fraser fir standing in my living room. Here’s some ideas I had:
- It’s our first real, “live” Christmas tree, so I thought it would be neat to cut a chunk out and whittle something out of it. Then I realized I have no idea how to whittle out a simple square let alone a bird or house or whatever people like to whittle. Which led to;
- Cut a thin slice off and burn “Our First Christmas Tree 2011” in the wood, seal it and make an ornament out of it. Which led to;
- Cut multiple thin pieces off the trunk, seal them and make rustic coasters out of them. Which led to;
- Google it!
After a quick search on Google, a couple websites popped up which share some inspirational ideas that are worth sharing.
Anyone have any ideas they’d like to add?!
Happy New Year!
