Craft Time...

I found the idea for Craft #5 on Pinterest, of course.

They used copper and steel wire and wrapped it around cone shaped Styrofoam and made Christmas trees.
Why can't I think of simple things like this?

Anyhow, I liked how they looked but knew that copper wire was pretty pricey and it was a little too shiny for my taste.  I wanted something a little more rustic.

Can you guess what I used??

Baling wire.
Yep!  You read that right!  I know it sounds kind of "redneckish", but it was rusty and I didn't have to buy it.  We have a lot on hand at the farm.

Brad was biting his lip the whole time eager to help with this project....
All you do is wrap the wire around the cone.

I chose to make  have Brad make various sizes...

Only one more craft to go in the Christmas Craft Time Marathon!
Hold on to your britches....;0)



  1. Love these. I pinned them too but I don't have Brad to make them for me...do you loan him out? Just for crafting purposes (and maybe some light bulb changes), of course!

  2. Love, love, love!! What an awesome, and simple, idea!

  3. Wow, I love the simplicity of these trees! Very cute.
