For as long as my husband is playing hockey it is pretty much a guarantee that we will be moving from one apartment to another. Whether we are moving cities or we out grow our apartment the less crap we have to move the better. A fake Christmas Tree is one of those things we just don’t need and I hate the mess of a real Christmas Tree. So what’s a girl to do? I sat down for a few minutes and thought, “What would Macgyver do?” (You’d be surprised how many times a week I ask myself ‘WWMD?’.)
Obviously, the answer is make one out of yarn and twinkle lights.
In an hour you can have a no mess, no watering, spread some holiday cheer Christmas Tree!
- Twinkle Lights
- Small Nails
- Small Ornaments
- Measure or eye the outline of a Christmas Tree.
- Starting at the top hammer nails in the outline of a Christmas Tree.
- Then start back at the top and tie the yarn onto the nail.
- Outline the Christmas Tree with yarn. When you reach a nail do a loop around the nail before continuing to the next one.
- Cut small pieces of yarn and tie them onto the outline where you see fit. As many or as few as you’d like.
- Then take the twinkle lights and follow the yarn. When the outline with the twinkle lights is complete start the outline again, but this time run the string across the middle of the tree.
- Hang small ornaments and let the tree illuminate your space with warm, cheery vibes.
Take some fun holiday pictures in front of your awesome new tree!
