Introduction: FREE Christmas Tree

How to make your own Christmas tree or repair/upgrade one.

Step 1:

What you will need:

-some christmas tree branches
-zip ties or wire or something similar
-vase (size depends on size of tree you want to build)
-damaged christmas tree (OPTIONAL)
-drill (OPTIONAL)
-decorating paper

I found my FREE christmas tree branches on the place where they are selling christmas trees. I asked them if I could get branches they cut off the trees and throw away. I asume one could get whole damaged christmas tree that way (or at least buy for very cheap).

Step 2:

1. Put few of your (bigest) branches together and tie them with wire or zip ties.
2. Stick smaller branches betwen biger branches that you have tied together before.

Step 3:

If you have damaged tree (asimetric or one that have not enought branches) you can drill hole in log of christmas tree, where you want new branch, and stick one in. Maybe you would need to sharpen base of branch before sticking it into log.

Step 4:

And the result:


P.S. Sorry for bad english!

    My dad had a heating business on the US/CANADIAN border and because the tree sellers were his customers, he would go around Christmas Eve near dinner time and buy up some lame trees that no one wanted from each seller and bring them home an create a beautiful tree from the decent parts! That was in the 1950-1960's!! Great minds think alike!

    Well pie 2323 I highly doubt you are any where as creative as this person. I think that is a cool idea.

    my family two years ago a week before Christmas home depot stopped selling Christmas trees and we didn't want to buy one from stu miller because he sells his trees for 150-200 dollars so we drive around where home depot tree dumpster was I jump out of the truck scale the dumpster locate a tree that looked good enough through it down into the truck bed jumped down from the dumpster and drove off that all happened in about 45 sec and the tree was pretty good it was missing half a side but we put that side twards a wall anyway

    Just be careful, short branches will dry out very quickly and become a fire hazard.
