Instead of sugar plums this year, I had visions of sugar trees dancing in my head. I was going to make 3D, spun trees as show-stopping toppers for the dessert table. Nevermind I had only ever made caramel once successfully for popcorn. I blame watching copious amounts of Great British Bakeoff and Holiday Baking Championship for convincing me I could do this.
These DIY evergreen holiday hair combs definitely feel like the culmination of last year’s holiday hat, foraged evergreen bouquet, and my recent obsession with statement hair combs.

I so wish I had a picture of the bouquet before I deconstructed it, but it pulled all the best of the season into one fragrant centerpiece.
I had bought a few reindeer cookie cutters for sugar cookies and had them out on the bookshelf because of #apartmentlife #nostorage and really liked how minimal they looked with the other decorations.
