What you’ll need:

glass mason jar or bail jar – I found mine at Joanne’s for $1.49
miniature Christmas buttons or miniature embellishments
bottle brush tree
glitter snow
E6000® Glue/Craft Adhesive
toothpick

What you do:

I purchased the larger of the two bottle brush trees I found. (These are typically in the dollhouse miniatures section of the store and were the most expensive component. Afterwards I realized I could purchase multi-packs of bottle brush trees online at a much better price, some of which are already decorated for you.) As the tree I bought was a wee bit tall for the jar I’d chosen, I used a pair of scissors to first cut off the wood base of the tree to shorten it a bit.

Next I dipped a toothpick in E6000 glue and used it to adhere the buttons I had selected to the tree on all sides. Then I turned the tree upside down and place a generous amount of glue on the base of the tree and then pressed it firmly onto the bottom of the jar.

Finally I added the glitter snow on and around the tree. I did this while the glue was still a bit wet so some would stick to the tree around where the ornaments were placed and at the base of the tree.

I have been inspired by so many projects on the web lately, but one project in particular that caught my eye was this tutorial for making your own Kawaii drawings on The First Lime blog. With Christmas just around the corner, I used the ideas for making faces from this tutorial to create my own little holiday gift tags featuring a smiling pine tree with a little squirrel running up its side.

I think they turned out super cute and am excited to try my hand at some more drawings and start a sketch books of Kawaii inspired art! In the meantime, I wanted to offer a free printable download of my little Kawaii tree gift tags. Just download the printable holiday gift tags here, cut and label with your own special message!
