Editor’s Weekend Tip No 3
Make this fun project with Susan Penny
These miniature Christmas trees cost just a few pence to make using things from your garden shed and your sewing box. The trees are made from soft plant ties bought from a garden centre, wrapped around a central stem – similar to pipe cleaners but with a wire centre, the ties easily bend to shape. For the pot use a large wooden bead or half a wine cork, gluing the stem in place. Glue beads onto the ends of the branches and a bead star to the top. Finish with a ribbon bow. A fun project to make with the kids this weekend.
