Astar's Craft:Table top xmas tree


How to make a table top Christmas tree!

These table top Christmas trees have been designed for those like me, who like a display that can be used all year round. Keep it simple now and embellish with sparkles and baubles come Christmas.

 

Things to gather:

Go to your local Garden Centre and purchase a tree shaped wire topiary frame. They come in various sizes. I used black because that is in keeping with other accents I have in my house ie. Black iron urns. For everything else you can head to Spotlight:

  1. Silver wire battery powered star fair lights – you will need 2.
  2. Rose garlands – I use white. They come in pink and red.
  3. Couple of lengths of artificial ivy.
  4. Christmas baubles to suit.
  5. Florist wire – gauge 24.
  6. Wire cutters.

 

Method:

  1. Wrap the silver wire fairy lights around topiary structure. Fix in place with little pieces of wire.
  2. Wrap the ivy around the structure holding in place with small pieces of wire.
  3. Repeat with the garland roses.
  4. Once finished leave as it is until nearer to Christmas then further enhance and embellish with selected baubles and crystals to suit.
