This weekend I made a Christmas tree to use for a part of my decorations this year.
Here's the DIY instructions if you'd like to make your own tree.
The supplies you will need -
- wire ( I used a floral wire purchased at a thrift store .49 cents)
- cone shape object, either paper mache or styrofoam (cone - $2.49 from Micheal's)
- wire cutter
This is so simple , all you do is start at the tip of the cone with the wire. Bending the wire tightly around the tip of the cone, then begin wrapping the wire around the cone in a downward spiral.
When your wire gets to the bottom of the cone twist the wire slightly around the previous row of wire. Then snip the wire using a wire clipper.
Now carefully pull the cone out from the bottom of the tree, leaving the wire intact. You've now have your own
Wire Christmas Tree!
Total cost for this tree .49 cents. I'll be using the cone for another project.
Making this a very inexpensive tree.
I may look for a little star to put on top of the tree to dress it up a bit more.
disclaimer - I do not take credit for the originality of this tree, as I got the idea to make this tree while browsing a magazine or on line, but do not recall the source.
