DIY Holiday Decorations

December 3, 2013 § Leave a comment


Birch bark makes beautiful cards, tree decorations and gift tags.  Just a few tips before you start your project:

  • Collect birch bark from fallen trees only.
  • Soaking in water and flattening the bark under a rock for a few days will get the curl out.
  • Cut birch bark into small shapes with scissors.
  • Use twine to hang your decorations, in keeping with a rustic look.
  • A wood-burning tool is great for writing your greetings and outlining your design (but a sharpie does the job, too!)
  • Paint with acrylics or colour with markers.
  • Happy Holidays!
