A little before New Year’s Eve we took down our Christmas tree and decorations, one of them was a DIY Christmas Garland. The garland had been up for about 2 weeks and the dry and fragrant smell of Pine smelled too amazing to throw out into the compost pile. ⇒ Enter resourceful DIY idea!
We gathered some pretty twigs and lots of aromatic pine needles, arranged them in 32-ounce Ball mason jars. We had them displayed in the living room for a while and now they are in the guest bedroom. They can be uncovered whenever someone wants to smell the scent of the winter holidays and remember those sweet memories
- Mason Jars – or reuse any type of jars with lids (in desired size), pasta sauce jars work well for this, for a smaller option perhaps baby food jars (as shown in top photo)
- Dried pine branches, twigs, pine needles
- optional: a few drops of your favorite organic essential oil that you think would compliment the pine scent
- Arrange pine twigs and needles how you want in the glass mason jars. There are several ways you can curate these jars, this is where the artistry comes in, for example, a. arrange twigs first and then arrange pine needles around them, b. do a jar just of twigs, c. do a jar just of pine needles, d. use different size jars and do the same style in each to unify them – see there are so many different ways to style your DIY Pine Mason Jars!
- Place them where they can be enjoyed, perhaps try them out in a different room every so often or in a guest bedroom for guests to enjoy the aromatherapy of the pine scent!
