Here I was taking the branches of different sizes out to make my mini tree.
Up-cyled Project of Old Christmas Tree
When we bought a new larger tree, I asked my husband to cut off the branches and save them. I saw small trees in the craft store for sale and thought I can make them from the tree branches.
Here you will need your glue gun to glue on the pine cones to the tree.
Buy what you want to decorate with from a craft store or dollars store.
Some of the decorations I bought
You will need a wire cuter to cut the branches the sizes you want.
Prepare the tree, fan out the branches before you add decorations. Notice the Burlap holding the branches. The burlap has small stones to weight the bottom and keep the branches from falling. Rope is wrapped around the burlap to keep the burlap in place.
Here you see three pine cones hot glued into place
As I glued the pine cones on the tree, I used different colors
Here you see the finished tree all for a couple of dollars. You can't see the beads. Sorry about that.
