Charles and I have a fairly small house so we try not to fill it with a lot of junk. That being said, our Christmas tree was a fun challenge. I saw a few years ago an idea that my aunt made and I fell in love !
|Any idea what this precious little tree is made from ?|
|Here's a hint ... tomato|
I tried to find a blog/tutorial to make one but no one had one like this and I made mine last year. Okay it's really really easy. Easy enough to make themed kids/kitchen/outdoor trees and a lot of them !
Tomato Cage - home improvement store
Garland - dollar tree/target/walmart. I think I used 4 strands(buy extra, you can return it later)
One strand of lights - we had/you can purchase anywhere
One rubber band or other fastener
1. Join 4 metal points of tomato cage with rubber band or other fastener.
2. Start at the top of the "tree" wrapping the structure with garland to fill in all holes.
3. Secure garland at the bottom.
4. Wrap strand of lights around the tree.
5. Decorate !!!
Seriously it's that easy ! And mine cost about $8 !!! It's so easy to put up each year ... we keep the lights on and pop it out whenever we're ready to decorate :) and remember to light your Evergreen or Mistletoe candle to add a refreshing pine fragrance to the house !
