Introduction: Emergency Christmas Tree Replacement
Christmas eve tree disaster...need immediate simple replacement
Step 1: Hopefully Your Lights Survived. I Used Those, Ornament Hangers, Tacky Removable Poster Stuff and an Occasional Nail
gather the objects, I found the ornament hangers above to be ideal
Step 2: Pick a Location
Accept you will need to use at least one nail to build from. Estimate size you hope for and center the nail
Step 3: The Star
My star had a hole I could directly insert nail into. I started all my lights from behind it and used it to hide the starting point.
Step 4: Pencil in or Visualize Tree Outline.
At each outline point give yourself a hook. Because the weight of the lights to make the size if my tree I put a nail thru the hike in the hook and putty being part of the hook to push it forward so lights didn't touch wall
Step 5: Tree Outline
doesn't need to be perfect, it will be filled in
Step 6: Make Rows
make rows for Christmas tree fullness. any place cord is two long before lights start I used twist ties to shorten. you can color to match cord if choose.
Step 7: Start Doing Diagnals
Think of these as the actual tree lights. Be sure to hit the lights so you can draw Diana's from the various outline . the clips I used allowed the outline on the bottom of the hook and the criss cross in a higher hoop.
Step 8: After Tree Done, Pick a Spot to Draw Lights Out Toward an Outlet.
Pull it out do it doesn't mess up your tree line then plug in. Be relieved that you once again have a tree to put presents under
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
