Here is how I made the Christmas tree from A Charlie Brown Christmas. Make one yourself and keep the magic alive.
Sorry for the less than spectacular photos.
The blu-ray cover is from an Amazon product listing.
Step 1: What You'll Need
8 feet 18 gauge automotive wire
MDF scraps (for the base)
5 Minute Epoxy
Coaxial Cable (for the copper wire inside, but ended up not being needed)
Needle Nose Pliers
Utility Knife (not pictured)
Let's get to it.
Step 2: Cut the Wire
Strip the plastic off (wire strippers work best but wire cutters will work).
Step 3: Bundle, Twist & Shape
Separate one wire for the first branch and then continue twisting the remaining wires. Continue this process until you run out of wires. Now you can move the wires around and do some preliminary shaping until you have something similar to what I have in the photo.
