I’m SO excited to share this adorable mini eraser Christmas tree with you! I think it would look super cute in a school office or on a teacher’s desk.
Mini Eraser Christmas Tree
When I bought this little $3 tree at Target recently, I couldn’t resist also picking up a couple new bags of mini erasers too.
They begged to be paired together…
I made the first couple ornaments by gluing embroidery thread to the erasers with plain ol’ school glue. I guess because they’re so light it worked perfectly well.
Then I decided I’d rather use more of a twine looking thread, but I didn’t have anything like that on hand.
So I cheated…
I pulled threads off the burlap that’s wrapped around the tree base. I don’t think you can tell looking at it!
However, the burlap thread is a little stiffer, and it was harder to get it to stay in place while the school glue dried. Plus, I was getting impatient.
Out came the hot glue gun.
It was super easy, except I may have scorched my fingers a time or two.
It was worth it to have instant ornaments – I hung them on the little Christmas tree as they cooled. I was excited to finish quickly and see the final effect.
I’m going to tie a Target gift card to a couple of these and give them to my girls’ teachers. If I were still in the classroom I’d definitely be making one of these for my partner teacher.
I hope you feel as much joy in making one of these as I did.
