Copper Pipe Christmas Ornament
Each year I try to make at least one unique ornament for our Christmas tree. This year I saw a copper plant holder and that's what sparked the idea for this ornament.
1/4 inch copper pipe - 2 feet
The 1/4 inch copper pipe bends easily so be careful to keep it as straight as possible. I have no idea how my pipe bent but it wasn't bad enough to ruin the project. For this ornament I marked the pipe 2 1/2 inches for the base and 4 inches for each side piece.
Cut the pipe carefully. Again, be careful not to bend it.
You'll have 6 copper pieces total. Three pieces for the base and three pieces for the side. You'll also cut the twine approximately double the length of your cut pieces plus 6 inches to tie off and create a hanger. In this case, the twine is 4 1/2 feet long.
Run the twine through each side and the base doubling back so that it's sturdy. Once you're done, tie a tight knot at the top of your ornament. Tie another loop a few inches up for hanging.
Arrange greenery as desired and glue in place with a glue gun.
