minimal wooden tree
My eyes are drawn to minimalism, so I am always looking for minimal ways to create things I love for my office or home. I really believe that “less is more.” Here is a simple take on a Christmas tree. Very minimal, with a Scandinavian vibe.
Large glass bottle
Wooden dowel (diameter should be the size of the bottle opening)
3/8” wooden dowels for branches (varying lengths)
3/8” drill bit
- Mark about six points, evenly spaced, on the main dowel, but don’t have any align vertically.
- Drill through the center of each point you marked.
- Push the 3/8” wood dowels through each hole—longest dowel on bottom and work your way up with the shortest length at the top.
- Insert the main dowel into the bottle. Now it’s time to decorate your tree!
Option: Paint the bottom half of the glass bottle (white, black, rose gold, your favorite color).
