Electronic Junk Chistmas Tree

Introduction: Electronic Junk Chistmas Tree

In these days, electronic products are quickly obsolete and discarded. This is a big enviroment problem beacause "E- Waste" is not easy to recycle like others materials. Electronics contain many toxic components and the way to minimize this problem is a responsible electronic consumption.

Today, in my first instructable I want to show us how you can reuse old electronic boards to build a small christmas tree. I hope you enjoy it !!

The first thing you need is electronic junk!! You can get it from olds electronic gadgets like radios, dvds, decoders, players, etc... Do not throw it away your obsoleted electronics, they have a second life.

Lets go!!
