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.
