This year I have made our tree. The branches are made from thin wire twisted around thicker wire. After all the branches were made I wired them onto a curtain rod which I had cemented into an enamel bucket. When this was finished I sprayed the whole tree white. The idea came from a tree I saw in a large chain store and I asked where I could get one. I was told that they could possibly order me one and the cost was approximately $150. After spending hours making one myself I know now that this price is quite cheap, and I fear someone in a less fortunate country will have been paid pittance for making these trees.
Anyway, the lights look so pretty twinkling on the tree I have uploaded my first YouTube video and put it on the blog.
Merry Christmas to you all out there in blog land.
