Introduction: A Tree in a Box?
Last Christmas I made this Christmas Tree to decorate the Music School where I work. It is made from a wood box that had been constructed to transport a sculpture. The local Museum is located just under the Music School so I was seeing this box every day when I went at work. One of those days I asked myself: "Could I made a Christmas Tree from that? Why not?"
Step 1: The Box
This wood box seems to have some lines in two of the corners that if I paint in green... I could make a kind of Christmas Tree!
Step 2: Yes! Here It Is!
I have need only 2 types of green paint, one for the base and another to give a final touch.
But... It seems that something is missing...
Step 3: The Tip and the Star
I used cardboard to construct the tip and the star. To make the star I searched a youtube tutorial but changing paper for carboard and I covered It with glitter foam.
Step 4: Almost Finished...
I painted the cardboard tip in green...
Step 5: Done!
The tip with the star on the top of the box! Now we just need to decorate with balls and lights!
