Doing the following will give any Christmas tree a beautiful and rustic feel.
The fact that it is inexpensive can be a perfect alternative to anyone trying to do something new this Christmas or anyone on a budget!
- Hot glue
- Glue sticks
If you have a reusable Christmas tree, take the time to spread the faux stems. It will help cover any empty spots.
You could also purchase some filler stems.
After buying some pine cones — or picking some up from a backyard — use hot glue to attach each piece of string to each pine cone.
Ideally, decide on a preferred string size before cutting the rest of the string pieces.
Then, stain the wooden letters (from Dollar Tree) using a brown tone stain. I kept the tag string that came with it and just took off the tag.
Add a garland. I used a bead garland I had on hand.
You could DIY a garland using brown, beige or golden ribbon, or even fabric or burlap. See below.

As a finishing touch, I added a wooden star (purchased at Dollar Tree)! The same brown stained from above was used.
