To start, rinse and dry mini bottle brush trees. Once rinsed and dried give a little dab of hot glue to the bottom wood piece of each tiny tree and then use a wooden skewer to press it down in the bottom center of the light bulb.
Next use a funnel to add the white glitter to each one. To finish them off, add a few dabs of hot glue to the lid of each one to secure the lid on tight to the ornament. Then tie a bow of red and white baker’s twine onto each one. You could do a bow or use the baker’s twine as the actual hanger itself.
