How to make a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree
It's a little hard to tell, but this branch is laying on a sidewalk. It is about 3.5 feet tall. It's a regular tree branch, not from an evergreen.
These are some Christmas tree cuts that I "picked up" at Home Depot. (they were in the garbage can?)
I trimmed up the branch, taking off several twigs to make it a little more bare.
I then used my hot glue gun to glue the evergreen pieces to the remaining twigs.
A closeup of how I glued the greenery to the twig.
I hung one ornament on one of the twigs.
I used some small boards that I have been "seasoning" in the back yard. I cut them with my miter saw to make two little "legs" so that it would sit right. I used Gorilla Glue to fasten all the boards together. I used a paddle bit (¼") to drill a hole for the branch to fit into.
So, there you have it, my version of a Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
