THIS TIN CAN CHRISTMAS TREE HACK WILL HELP YOU ADD A FEW EXTRA TREES IN TO DECORATE AROUND YOUR HOME.

It’s no secret that I love putting up Christmas trees. In fact, one year I put up three of them.

They are one of the ways that allow you to be as creative as you want to be. The three I put were all neutral and farmhouse-themed but still had their own unique touches. That’s what makes this craft project even more awesome.

WHY I LOVE THIS PROJECT

One of my newest and most favorite craft supplies to work with has been these faux wall adhesives that Dollar Tree sells.

I’ve been amazed by the things crafters have come up with. I knew it’d only be a matter of time before I jumped on the bandwagon as well.

The fact that a $1+ supply can yield some pretty awesome-looking decor is a winner in my book!
