My tree branches are from my neighbor's trees. So they are not really in any shape or size as pretty as the store bought ones. But eh what they heck, they are free!
I used my trusty Martha Stewart edge punch and craft paper to jazz up this glass candle votive I got for free from Bath and Body Works. They once had a promo to give this out with any small candle purchase. I still have so many more of them than I know what to do with.
