Introduction: Pipe Cleaner Christmas Tree

About: Hi, I'm Lisa. I love crafting and you can find out all the things I get up to on my blog http://thecraftartykid.blogspot.com/

Once I was done decorating my house for the holidays, I started on my dolls house by making this pipe cleaner Christmas tree.

Step 1: Make the Base of the Tree

Start off with one green pipe cleaner and bend three little legs on the end so it stands up.

Step 2: Cut the Branches

Cut up pipe cleaners into varying lengths and twist them onto the main pipe cleaner, with the longest bits at the bottom.

Step 3: Add the Branches

Add additional branches to the lower parts to bulk them out.

Step 4: Decoration

Add a tinsel pipe cleaner and some beads for the baubles.

Step 5: Finish the Scene

Finish the scene by making tiny wrapped presents to go under the tree.
You could also make little stockings to hang on the fireplace.

    That's just adorable! I could see a row of them on the mantelpiece, decorated with strands of beads. Thanks for the idea! ( Just have to worry about keeping the cats from nobbling them to play with--"wow! Look at these neat toys Mom made for us!)"

    "That's what she said..." ;-)
    Otherwise, I'll totally make some to table ormanents/presents. I'm thinking of adding some sort of illumination to it, but some normal 3-5 mm LEDs would be way to big, so I think I'll just add one "candle flicker" LED (from Evil Mad Science) and a battery to the base to add some background light. (Think of a throwie, but with a flicker LED.)
