A tree for your tree

Happy Friday to you all! I hope you have lots of festive fun planned over the weekend. Perhaps you fancy making some tree decorations? Well if you’re in the market for some Christmas craft, why not give these tree ornaments a go? They are so simple to make and it also means you get to go on a little twig hunt walk.

To make…

  1. Cut your twigs into varying lengths to create your Christmas tree shape. I applied a bit of pressure with the scissors and then snapped the twigs.
  2. Then roughly paint white strips on each twig. You really don’t need to be neat as it just adds to the affect.
  3. While you wait for the paint to dry you can fashion the star shape out of wire. Kink the wire with your pliers while the wire is straight and then pull round so that the bottom wire ends meet. Twist the ends around each other to secure and adjust the shape if it needs tweaking.
  4. Then cut another strip of wire and wrap one end around the bottom of the star. Heat your glue gun.
  5. Lay the twigs out, front facing down and lay the wire running down the centre, with the star at the top. Secure with dots of hot glue.
  6. To finish off, thread the white cotton through the top of the star and tie at the top. Now you can hang away.
