We created two projects using products from the Martha Stewart line at The Home Depot. Yesterday, we shared a lighted sign, and today we’re back with a hanging ornament tree project. There are a host of festive DIY holiday projects (with video tutorials from Martha herself) here!
- 6 Branches (or wooden dowels*)
- Ribbon or Martha Stewart Battery Operated LED Wire Lights
- Martha Stewart Snowberry Ornament Collection
* If you’re going to create your own branches out of dowels like we did, we recommend using 1″ diameter dowels, white spray paint, and a permanent marker to create a pattern on your dowels.
Collect 6 branches from your yard or the woods. We had a hard time finding branches we liked, so we created our own branches using wooden dowels from the craft store, paint, and a marker. Cut your branches to be 6″ inches to 36″ long (6″, 12″, 18″, 24″, 30″ and 36″ long). Drill through the ends of your ‘branches’ at an angle so that the tree takes on a triangular shape.
Thread wired lights or ribbon through the branches, beginning at the bottom and going all the way up to the top. We threaded our lights back down to add strength to the tree.
To prevent the wired lights from sliding, we looped the wire around the back side of each dowel to hold it in place. With ribbon, you could just knot the ribbon below each branch.
Hang the tree on the wall with a removable picture hanging strip and decorate. We used the Martha Stewart Snowberry ornament collection and stuck with a mixed metal (gold, copper, brass) theme because it complemented the colors on our tree.
