How to make these adorable birch branch mini tree holders – I’m still loving birch branches for winter DIY projects. I’m sure I’ll come up with a few original projects, but this is one I’m still using for a casual, rustic dinner party. But this time I clipped small branches from all over the yard. Instead of using the same type of evergreen clipping, I have an assortment which just adds more fun to the quirky place cards. Using all the same kind of evergreen works too, which is what we did for a very casual winter table. Either way, I promise your guests will love them!
Here’s what you’ll need
- birch branch about 1 1/2 to 2″ in diameter
- drill with small drill bit
Here’e how to make them
To make the tree holders we used a table saw to cut pieces or slices about 1/2″ in thickness and then drilled a small hole in the top on one side only about 1/4″ deep.
The tiny drill hole holds the tiny branch or clipping. The woody branches do not even need to be glued in, they stay fresh for a few days without water.
Optional idea – Paint the top of each birch branch with chalkboard paint and write names on the piece using a chalk pen.
