I am a trash to treasure kind of girl. Why spend a lot of money, when I can gather a few items, use a little (sometimes a lot) of elbow grease and create something unique and different. I came across this Christmas-Tree-To-Go made from sticks and Christmas odds and ends. How hard can it be? ...not hard at all.
The page is in German, but all I had to do was look at the picture. Heck, I never fully read (looked) at the entire page until just a few minutes ago. Several months ago, I found the picture, and put it in my inspiration folder. All I had was the picture, never venturing back to read how to do it.
What I have found out in the last hour or so, since reading (looking) through the entire page, is that the tree on the page is considerably smaller than the one I have made. I knew it was called "tree to go". But never thought about it being so small.
In hindsight, I also like the smaller ones. To have a small wall space with one tree, or a wall with several small trees would be just as different. ...and I like different.
It is what it is. I made mine much larger. But...I still like. Actually, I am really diggin it. I like it so much, that I just might make a tree for every holiday. The Dollar Tree sells many small trinkets for each holiday. Plus, it took up a bare spot of the wall. Win/win.
