Tabletop Christmas Ornament Knitting Needle Tree

I like to keep Christmas simple, but I also like to decorate too. Doesn't always have to big, and flashy. Sometimes just the simplest things, right from home, can come together to make an adorable piece for the home too. I have found a non-permament way that was shared to use your ornaments, is easy....even I can do it LOL:) Can be done in many different ways to display with a counter top, by itself, bay window, mantel, and just a wonderful accent with your decor anywhere. After Christmas you can put it apart, and use the pieces again for something else, or do the same thing for the following year too.

All you need is about 4 sizes of ornaments, and about 20 of them. Should be about 4 of each size which is large, medium, small, and the minature ones too. You will need a knitting needle that is about 14 inches long. Then, it is optional with the rest of the supplies to be used. A tree topper, or star. Ribbon spool, some spray paint, paper cutter, glue, and some scrapbook paper. 

As you can see above one tree was done with the ribbon spool for the base, and the other one does not have it. You can do this tree with ornaments only, or as you can see the tree topper can be added as well. For full instructions that are step by step, and believe me they are easy to do. Just follow over to InMyOwnStyle website for the full details of this. 

By the way, I did make one this afternoon really quickly at home. I had the knitting needle which was already silver so I did not feel the need to paint it. I had different sized ornaments from times past. For my topper I had used an ornament that was made into a round ball of like strands of pearls. Nothing fancy, and it fit nicely into the bay window in our kitchen with the hanging wreath that has lights there, and a big glass jar that I have colored lights filling it too. It only takes a few minutes to put this little ornament tree together, and it fits in nicely with the christmas decor too.
