PB baby trees

Last year, PB had these little live trees that you could buy in burlap sacks (I didn't see them this year).  I liked them, but failed to plant seeds several years ago to grow my own live ones.  So I hacked some branches off our juniper tree (that I usually hate that that's coming down in the spring), stuck them in mason jars full of water, and tied burlap around the jars with ribbon.  And so you see:
I love any excuse for more greenery, especially the real stuff.  I might go back and actually sew the bags, so they have little corners, but the odds of that aren't really great; especially with all the Christmas presents I still need to make.  (I can't wait to show you what Mim's getting!)

What a great idea! This would be the perfect way to use the branches we cut off at the bottom of our tree.
