Bough and Lights Door Decoration



Don't throw away your Christmas tree trimmings, reuse them for this Christmas craft. Using boughs and burnt out tree lights you can have this door decoration to give as a gift or keep it for yourself.


  • Bough trimmings from your christmas tree
  • Old burnt out colored bulbs
  • The hook hangers that you use to hang bulbs on the tree
  • A few pieces of ribbon, wide and thin


  1. After trimming the bottom of your christmas tree, gather 2 or 3 of the boughs and tie together with a few pieces of ribbon, so that they are secure at the bottom and at the top.
  2. Take a piece of wide ribbon and wrap the bottom stems of the branch bunch, making a nicely wrapped end, secure with glue, hot or Elmers.
  3. Take your old colored bulbs and wrap the hook wire around each metal end then create a hook and hang on the branches you've just put together. Put as many colored bulbs on as you like, even and a few red bows, or other small ornaments.
  4. I hang this on a wreath holder, the ribbon that I used to tie the branches together works well to hang on the wreath holder.

Tip: A little bonus is to put a few drops of essential oil on the door decoration, everytime you open and close the door, the aroma fills the area.
