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.
To make the tree holders we used a table saw to cut pieces about 1/2″ in thickness and then drilled a small hole in the top which 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.

I love how Amy used fresh greens and birch branch candle holders that remind her of vacationing in Maine. Simple and elegant!
Sheila used birch branches in her woodland display along with mixed greenery and little houses that she found at Home Goods. They remind me of the beautiful display of all natural made buildings and houses at the the NY Botanical Garden Train Show.
I love Heather’s blue & white plates hung on the wall and the red chair with a bucket of fresh greens makes it look like Christmas!
