Wrapping up in a blanket and sipping hot chocolate to watch  A Charlie Brown Christmas was a Christmas tradition while growing up. It never seemed like Christmas without watching it, Frosty the Snowman, and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer with the entire family. It seems harder now to get the kids excited over such old cartoons and they aren't aired as religiously as they once were, or at least on stations I can find. So I decided to make a decoration this Christmas to hold on to that childhood magic I so fondly remember.

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)
Paper Clip


Wire Cutters
Needle Nose Pliers
Utility Knife (not pictured)
Drill Bits

Let's get to it.
Cute little tree.
Thank you!
I love how it looks as copper! Very cute.
Thank you. I like the copper too but still wonder what it would look like with the patina.
