Last time I told you I was making a Christmas tree. http://wp.me/p1WEqk-2Gc I did get it decorated before Christmas.
The small one is in Grandmas House
The large on is in my house. Here it is stretched over its frame. The tomato cage give it an odd shape but I like it. Please excuse the messy desk in the back ground. I should of rolled the top down but didn’t think of it.
next I decorated it. it turned out not so bad. I added some of the decorations that I have received in the forum Holiday exchange over the last few years. The candy cane is one. In the first picture you can see the tree better and in the second one you can see the lights better. You can see my spinning wheel in the back ground too.
The biggest problem with making a tree like this is there is nothing to hang the lights and decorations on. I ended up sewing the lights on, all around the tree, 25 feet of lights. I used the tinsel to hide the wire. Then I hung all the ornaments using the tinsel and wire to hook over. It looked a little bare still so I added. a string of red beads, sewn on again. All in all I am very pleased with them both. Anyone have a better/different idea of how to add the lights and decorations?
