Essentials (South Africa) - - CRAFT -

Swap a flo­ral ar­range­ment for a tiny ev­er­green forest on your ta­ble with these adorable mini­trees. Buy a length of un­treated tim­ber and have it cut into square blocks for you. Sand down any rough edges. Make a hole in the cen­tre of each cube ei­ther by ham­mer­ing in a nail, or us­ing the small­est bit of an elec­tric drill. Dec­o­rate how­ever you like (we used an al­pha­bet stamp­ing kit but you can use let­ter sten­cils to cre­ate the same ef­fect). Insert a sprig of pine into the hole in each block and use as place set­tings.
