I have been wracking my brain for the last month or so on making a Christmas tree that would fit our new ‘fancy’ tree house.
In past years Luke and I have worked on a tree made from books and last year I made one out of wood found on the street. This year I was trying to go for something minimal but still Christmassy, if you know what I mean. So after the cardboard disaster I spent some time (instead of sleeping) thinking of genius Christmas tree ideas. I was thinking of even a hanging tree and put that into google. I found the website hankandhunt.com which has an easy D.I.Y tree out of dowelng and coloured baubles. I like the idea of this but didn’t like the doweling look – a little to precise for me. Instead I went to foraged for sticks and twigs, went and bought some cheap baubles, found some nylon thread in our tool kit and off I went.
So here are photos of the steps I took to get my ‘Hanging Christmas Tree’ up.
Let me know if you have any Christmas tree D.I.Y projects you are working on. There is always next year.

Love your creative tree! Have you got pics of the ones from the past too? x
