Today I'm sharing my DIY Terrain copycat Christmas ornament, along with how I created some bakers twine bottle brush Christmas tree stands.

Here's my inspiration. I love Terrain and all their beautiful home decor and garden accents. They're just a bit too pricey for me most of the time.

When I saw this vignette on their website I knew I could recreate it myself. Ironically, the bottle brush tree wasn't even for sale. It's just being used as a prop for their forest scene lighted globe ornament display. But I loved the entire look and wanted to recreate it.

PART 1. HOW TO MAKE BAKERS TWINE BOTTLE BRUSH TREE STANDS

Step 1. Cut or pull off the bottoms off of your bottle brush trees so that you're left with just the wire sticking out from the under the tree.

Step 2. If your bakers twine spools came with plastic wrapped around them, be sure to remove the plastic.

Step 3. If your spools don't already have holes in the top for you to place your tree wire into, using a pencil, mark the center of the wood round on top of the spool. Then with a tool of your choice (I used a drill), create holes where you've made the pencil marks.

NOTE: I USED TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF TWINE SPOOLS. ONE SET WAS TALLER AND HAD A VERY LARGE OPENING AT THE TOP TO PLACE THE TREE DIRECTLY INTO IT. THE OTHER TWINE SPOOLS WERE SMALLER (LIKE IN THE TERRAIN VIGNETTE) AND HAD WOOD DISKS ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE SPOOL -- WHICH IS WHY I HAD TO DRILL THE SMALL HOLES. YOUR SPOOLS MAY DIFFER.

Step 4. Place your trees into their new "tree stands" and enjoy! (This spool already had an opening I could just place the tree into.)



PART 2. HOW TO MAKE TERRAIN FOREST SCENE LIGHTED GLOBE ORNAMENT

Step 1. Gently remove the metal ornament cap and save for another project.

Step 2. Carefully pour faux snow into the opening at the top of the ornament, filling the globe approximately one-third full.



Step 3. If using berry twigs stems like I did, take your wire cutter (or really good scissors) and start cutting the stems down into smaller pieces you can bend and insert into the clear globe ornament.

Step 4. Spray each piece of berry stem with adhesive spray (or cover with Mod Podge) and then gently roll the stem in a pile of faux snow, getting good coverage since some of the faux snow will eventually fall off.

Step 5. Bend the stems into somewhat of a "C" shape and begin inserting them, one by one, into the globe until you're satisfied with placement.

NOTE: YOU CAN ALWAYS USE TWEEZERS OR A SIMILAR INSTRUMENT TO ATTEMPT TO REARRANGE THE STEMS. I BASICALLY JUST LET THE STEMS FALL WHERE THEY MAY.

Step 6. Wrap twine around the neck of the globe a few times as seen here, and then glue down the end piece of twine to secure.

Step 7. Gently insert your string lights into the globe, pushing the wire in until you're satisfied with the number of lights inside the globe and their placement. Again, you can try and use a tweezer to reconfigure the lights strand but I just let them be.

NOTE: SINCE THE LED LIGHTS ARE NOT PERMANENTLY INSTALLED INSIDE THE GLOBE YOU WILL HAVE A BATTERY PACK TO DEAL WITH. I JUST MADE SURE TO HIDE THE BATTERY PACK BEHIND MY VIGNETTE.

Step 8. Snip a piece of picture wire (with wire cutters) long enough to wrap around the neck of the globe and to create a loop for hanging. Wrap it around the neck a few times, then create a loop for hanging and secure the end of the wire by twisting it around itself.

The beauty is that you don't have to be perfect here. You're going for a casual, rustic look. The more imperfect the better!

I set up the ornament and bottle brush trees in various vignettes.

I was thrilled with the rustic look of the finished globe ornament.

I'm super happy with how both the lighted globe ornament and the bottle brush trees with twine spools turned out. I believe the Terrain ornament was $18.00, but I had all the necessary supplies on hand for both the ornament and the trees, so I definitely saved myself some cash. I just love it when that happens with my DIY projects!

Well, that's it for today, friends!
