This DIY looks a little bit difficult but in reality it is very simple and about a 20 minute job. I’d recommend pulling in a partner to help you out if you are a bit worried. My husband was my partner (because I knew he’d love it). He seemed ecstatic about this DIY afterward. Hand a man a saw and let him tie some knots and all of a sudden he feels like Superman. Christmas DIY’s… making men feel masculine and making wives smile all across the world.
Step One: Saw up old branches into different lengths (that will fit your own space) and lay out on a flat surface until you have enough to create that ‘Christmas Tree’ look.
Step Two: Just to left of the centre of all branches, begin tying string/fishing wire into place from the bottom branch up. To quote my husband “A round turn and two half hitches”… that’s Boy Scout speak for three knots. Leave a length of string at the top branch. Repeat step two but on the right side of the centre this time. Don’t forget to leave a length of string.
Step Three: Take both lengths of string that have been left and tie them both together at the top. Then you are ready to hang your new hanging wood Christmas tree in it’s special spot.
I plan on adding lights and a few decorations to ours but that will come a little later so I’ll update with a photo then. In the mean time Boston loves it the way it is “You’re making Christmas Mummy!”
