These branches make pretty fall decoration pieces when cut straight from your trees outside and placed in a vase. It is an eye catcher in any room of the house. It can also be inspiration for an art piece.
My local Dollar Tree store is where I go often for crafty inspiration and ideas, especially when holiday items show up. This day my eyes caught some Christmas themed boxes that resembled little houses. I immediately thought what fun my two girls would have with these if the doors could open for their My Little Pony figures. The other day they constructed Christmas houses from their Legos and these little houses would be such a hit with them all thru the Holiday.
I bought a few boxes and at home I slit the doorway on the boxes carefully with my exact craft knife so they could open and shut. The extra bonus is that the tops are removable and my kids can place little furnitures in them if they choose to.
This project only cost one dollar for each house gift box and it is transformed into a playhouse for toys :).
