Alternative christmas tree

Christmas tree

Supplies

  • Thin dark green wool
  • thick mint green wool
  • White plastic fence (eg. to shield a balcony)
  • 1m plant stick
  • christmas ornaments
  • paperclips, to hang the ornaments on the fence

My alternative catproof and recycled christmas tree! This year, I didn’t buy anything but only used materials I already had. I tied a plant stick to the fence make the bottom heavier and to precent it from curling up.  I will possibly try and find another stick to the top to flatten it a little more. The fence hangs on a nail that already was in the wall. Hanging wool and ornaments on the fence was easy thanks to the holes in the fence!

 

Benodigdheden

  • Dunne donkergroene wol
  • Dikke muntgroene wol
  • Witte plastic gaas (om bvb balkons af te schermen)
  • 1m plantenstok
  • Kerstversieringen
  • Paperclips, om de versieringen aan het gaas te hangen

Mijn alternatieve, gerecycleerde kerstboom! Ik heb dit jaar niets gekocht maar gebruikte enkel materialen die ik al had liggen. Ik hing een plantenstok aan het stuk witte gaas om de onderkant zwaarder te maken en om het opkrullen te verminderen. Ik zal misschien nog een tweede stok zoeken om ook de bovenkant wat platter te maken. Het gaas hangt aan een nagel die al in de muur zat. De versieringen en de wool ophangen was supermakkelijk dankzij de gaatjes in het gaas!

    This is a great alternative to the traditional Christmas tree. We have posted a piece suggesting a couple of exotic alternatives of our own https://diggingfordirt.wordpress.com/2015/12/01/the-christmas-tree-question/ Let us know what you think
