christmas tree - work in progress


OK

A truly environmentally-friendly Christmas tree....

  1. Pick up a bunch of fallen twigs in the park - pick up a mixture: ones with lots of little branches plus some chunkier branches
  2. Paint the sticks using whatever paint you can find - white house paint is good but I found some water soluble metallic paint in the shed. Give the sticks a couple of coats
  3. Arrange sticks in a large glass vase and add baubles.
I will get some more baubles when I go to the supermarket tonight and add more twigs but not a bad and free effort.
