Life Hacks: Tree Branch Decor

(KFVS) -

Here’s a Christmas life hack that will help you put to good use your entire Christmas tree, even those branches that you trim off.

You’re first going to need to take a wet paper towel and wrap it around the end and then wrap that with a plastic baggie or plastic wrap. You then secure it with rubber bands. That’s to keep the branches nice and green.

Now all you do is use these to decorate your house for Christmas.

Here are a few ideas.

First, you can stick it in a wreath that you already have just to make it look a little bit more festive. Make sure you try and hide the plastic part and add lots of leaves to make it nice and full.

Another idea is just arrange it around a red Christmas candle that you already have on the table there. Again, you’re going to want to get more branches and just arrange them so that it looks nice and Christmassy.

Also, you can put it in a vase along with Christmas ornaments to make sure you are able to hide the plastic part. You may want to also add some smaller beads to make sure you hide the stem, as well.

The great thing about this life hack is that you can really make it your own and be creative and not waste any part of that Christmas tree.
