Style Report: Creative Uses for Manzanita Trees

Since the holidays are right around the corner, we thought we’d share some creative ways to play up those uber-fab Manzanita trees so you can reuse them time and time again! Check out our old post on how to make DIY Manzanita trees with super easy-to-follow steps that don’t require a lot of materials!

For Thanksgiving, have your loved ones write things they’re grateful for on decorative scraps of paper and hang them around the branches like ornaments.

For a more festive touch, cut out leaves on fall-inspired colored paper for the notes.


For those of you who don’t want to deal with the hassle of getting a real Christmas tree or don’t have the space for one, Manzanita trees are a perfect substitute. You can make them look more festive by either spray painting the branches silver or gold, or brushing them with glue and dipping them in glitter. Then simply hang your Christmas ornaments on its branches, just like you would any other Christmas tree!

And for those of you who love leaving your Christmas lights up year round, you can do the same with your Manzanita tree. Simply change up the ornaments according to whichever holiday it may be.

For Valentine’s day, write love notes on heart-shaped paper.

For Easter, hang decorated Easter eggs in various pastel colors.

And if anything, you can always just decorate your Manzanita tree in neutral colors and use it as a wishing tree. Simply write your wishes, dreams, hopes, and prayers on pieces of paper, and watch as they slowly come true one at a time. After all, God works in mysterious ways! 😉
