You can transform any tree into something amazing. That's right! No matter what that tree looks like, you can give it an epic upgrade.This post is how I make my workshop trees. I live in Japan where Christmas is very popular, but christmas trees...not so much. Most of my students don't have a tree in their house for these three reasons.1. There's not enough space2. Trees are too expensive3. It's too troublesome for parentsI solved these problems with my workshop tree. My trees are:1. 90cm tall and come in a sturdy box that fits in the corner of a traditional Japanese closet2. Only costs $5 for my students3. All decorations are glued in place so the tree can be unpacked and packed up in minutes.
